Re: freezedried bloodworms as killie food

I've been using this stuff for years. At this time I am feeding it to Fp.
gardneri, A. australe, Fp. filamentosus, S. flammeus, and N. rachovii.
They would all gladly eat it every day if I would give it to them. The one
problem that I notice is that, the freeze dried worms hold a lot of air and
if the fish eat their fill they float (the fish float, that is) for a while.
This doesn't seem to cause any lasting problems. It's actually kind of
funny to see a whole colony of gardneri stuck at the surface after pigging
out on the worms. I have noticed that adult fish will put on weight when
feed freeze dried Blood Worms continuously, as opposed to being feed frozen
Brine shrimp continuously.
This is a very convenient food. I hope that I never develop the allergies
that so many of the rest of you have.
