Frozen foods.

Can someone post pics of frozen daphnia, bloodworms and brine shrimp and also what it looks like thawed out? I want to see if it's really gross looking. lol I've been thinking of getting some but I'm afraid it will be too messy and gross. lol

LOL! I love this...
It's not gross. I can't take picture now because it's not feeding time and I don't "thaw" my food until I'm ready to use it, keeps it fresher.
With all those you mentioned, I use the same technique which has worked beautifully for me and it minimizes waste.
All those food come in packets divided in cubes. I take one frozen cube and place it in a little 1/2cup container with a tiny bit of water. I then swish the cube round and round until enough food separates and place the rest of the cube in a ziplock bag back in the freezer.
I pull out my tweezers (only works with BS and Bloodworms) and feed my bettas one or two critters at a time.
Daphnia is a little messier so I only feed it to my fry using the same method to thaw but I just add the water in the container to their tank, wait a couple of hours and then do my water change.

Saying it wasn't feeding time made me remember I needed to feed my fry
Anyway, today's special is Daphnia!
Here's a pic of how it looks. This serving is ready, just some Betta Started left to add, so I just pick out the remainig cube, place it back in the fridge and add the water to the tank.

For those who are new to handling bloodworms, you may need to wear gloves. Bloodworms especially freeze dried ones can cause you to exhibit allergic reactions if you are sensitive to it. Do NOT let your hands in contact with your face, eyes and mouth when you handle bloodworms.
