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.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
thanks for the birthday wish. yea i only feed the fish blood worms as treats and not everyday. yesterday i picked up the marineland single bright led light system and the fish love it. the lunar mode looks really cool and my fish seem more happier. as for which type of bloodworms i got i will post a reply later on today i dont have the box near me.
