They're All Dead. why?

I had 4 baby fish. yesterday i gave all my tanks frozen bloodworms, and now they all died, + my balloon molly. Was it the bloodworms? all my fish ate them, but only those 5 fell ill/died. Was it the bloodworms? Could they have been rotten? The exp. date was in 2013, so i figured they were alright.

i had the same problem last year, my freezer was working on and off so everything in the freezer froze and defrosted every now and again making the bloodworms go off.

It killed all my fry

I would not be so hasty in thinking that it was your blood worms as the date on them was not passed.

There may be other reasons for the loss of your fry. Water Parameters, Filter issues, etc. can all be involved.

If you fed your other fish and they are still alive I highly doubt that it was the food that you were feeding to your fish.

Did you loose all your fish in your tank?

Have you checked nitrites, ammonia levels etc?

If your freezer was not working then I can see more of the possibility of it being the blood worms.

I think the frezzer stopped for a while, and it was them. all the water params were fine, they were fine before i fed them
