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.

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.
