Blood worms for Goldfish?
 
I know that goldfish love a varied diet and i am already feeding them flake food with cucumber and orange.
I was wondering if blood worms would agree with the stomachs of my goldfish...

Your black moor won't take well to flakes as all round bodied fancies usually don't due to floaty issues. I'd scrap that one.

Bloodworms are fine. I'd feed those stuff 2-3 times a week.

I release the flakes under the water so they are easy for the moor, he sucks those bad boys in like theirs no tomorrow :)

They're still lacking nutrition regardless. Switch to sinking pellets. Hikari Lionhead is one of the good choices. Is it possible for you to order Mazuri gel foods online at Goldfish Connection? If not, you can always make homemade gel foods for the fish. Do you have references to their recipes? They're easy to make and are economical and very suitable as staple foods.
