To be honest, bloodworms aren't something you'd want to keep alive... They turn into midges..
Do you want a bunch of these in your house?
If you want something you can breed in captivity, try daphnia, vinegar eels, or blackworms.
I understand that bloodworms are midge larvae but thought their larva to pupa stage would take a week or so. Probably I'm wrong.
And to elaborate on my other question. What I heard was that "frozen" worms are nutritious but not "freeze-dried" ones. Whats the difference b/w the two? So freeze-dried ones are good enough, yeah?
Nice midge pic, btw
