Do you have to do anything with the larvae before feeding betta? Or do you just go pick some out of a bucket?

You dont HAVE to breed just to feed larvae and as far as I know you just use a net and fish it out of the bucket. Also bloodworms is larvae (not sure from what insect) you can get them freeze dried or frozen but I bet they would love fresh the best!!

i feed my guys frozen bloodworms, i have no idea where i would get live bloodworms around here though.
I am always interested in trying something new to feed my guys...Haven't tried mosquito larvae yet..so I will have to try catching some.There's plenty around.

I rinse my mosquito larvae under running water twice before feeding lol I just do it because everyone else does it so I assume it has a reason :P
