Talking Feeding frozen food

I have never fed my betta's frozen food before but I thought I would try...I have frozen block of blood worms and brime shrimp...how should I feed it? Should I just put the block in the water? Should I defrost it first? Should I feed a whole cube? Thank you for your help! I am new to this Betta obcession! But it is such a wonderful and rewarding pet to own! I have bought 3 tanks and 3 different betta's in the last 2 months! lol...its addicting! :) amber

Chip off a small piece of the frozen block of food and thaw it out in some tank water.

I just thaw out my frozen food in a separate container filled with warm water (I add a couple of drops of Prime since I tip whatever is left over into my Goldfish tank). Then I just tweezer out individual bloodworms or brine shrimp and let my fish chase them around for a bit.

I have about 1cm x 1cm cubes and even a 1/4 of this is more than enough to feed 9 bettas.

Just make sure if you dump a whole lot in and let it defrost in the tank, it is properly thawed before your bettas get near it. One of my males died after he got a big lump of ice or something stuck in his throat and it was a terrible feeling.

Yep chipping and thawing here as well. My bettas are hit or miss with eating frozen food, though. Gravy Jones LOVED Freshwater Frenzy and Frozen Bloodworms, Neb only liked Frozen Bloodworms, and Hoagie and Tater Tot refuse to eat anything frozen. Spoiled rotten lol.

You don't really have to thaw your frozen food if you don't want to. I chip off a tiny piece and drop it in the tank, and it melts/thaws a bit as soon as it hits the water. Plus, my betta has great fun chasing the big chunk of food around his tank! XD
