A belated Happy Birthday.
Two cautions on the bloodworms. First, only feed these once or twice a week. They are high in protein of which too much is not good, and they are fatty by comparison to other prepared foods. Consider them a treat.
Second, thaw them out before putting them in the tank. I place a cube or break off a piece, whichever type you get, and place it in a sauce dish of warm water and wait until it is completely thawed before feeding. I can't remember the reason, but I do know I have read this from some very reliable sources so I follow it. Also, it prevents too much of the "liquid" from getting into the tank, and I think this was a lesser part of it.
