Feeding FBW

Hi,

I'm wondering, is a 1 cube of Frozen Bloodworm enough for 1 betta fish?
Should I feed him once a day? o every other day? Should I also remove the FBW immediately of my betta doesn't eat it? or I leave it there until water change? I change water every 3 days.

You should switch to pellets. Bloodworms should be used as treats once-twice a week. With pellets, three in the morning and three at night is good.

Thank you shinybetta for a quick reply..

My betta's doesn't eat betta pellets (sanryu) what should I do? I'll do what you say about FBW as a treat once a week. Should I remove the FBW immediately? or should I left it until water change? 'coz a cube of FBW is too much for a single betta.

Frozen bloodworms are fine... just not the whole cube!!!
Try to incorporate pellets in there, some fish resist but they'll eat them eventually. Some will prefer one brand over the other... I have 3 different pellets I feed depending on the fish.
I feed my fish frozen bloodworms and pellets everyday as their regular diet and they are all very healty and happy *knock on wood*
I would feed 3-6 bloodworms depending on the size of the fish plus a pellet or two (I use small pellets).
To get the whole bloodworm out of the cube, I just swish it around in a little cup with water until enough bloodworms separate and place the remaining of the cube back in the freezer.

Thank vilmarisv

I'll try that also (different kinds of pellets). I can't put it back on the freezer, my family will get angry because it smells bad.

Bloodworms? They don't smell at all while in the freezer.
I place the cube in a little ziplock bag to store.
As long as you don't leave your bloodworms out until they get brown, they will not smell.
