I don't have large tanks like you do (well, I do have a 75 gallon not yet set up) so I suspect you will use most if not all of the cube.
Ah, that explains it, thanks. Were it me, I would probably thaw the worms (in cold not warm water), feed what you want to the fish, and place the unused in a small jar of cold water in the fridge. They will keep for a couple days. Aside from the convenience (to me) of this over cutting frozen cubes, it also means whole worms are being fed. I have read that worms should always be fed whole because of the nutritional value. Chopped earthworms are often used for larger fish that can't manage whole worms, but the whole worm though chopped is still fed at once. I have no scientific reason to support this, but as I have read it many times from reputable aquarists in magazines and online, I mention if for what it may be worth... B.
