    Apologies to derail the thread....

    Is it normal frozen blood worms (those that can be fed to Tropical fish)? Turbi- also those for tropical fish?

    Hi Floyd , yes its normal frozen bloodworms all my fish love it, if a wild caught specimen won't eat try anything until they do lol. I feed my fish brine shrimp and bloodworms once everyday.

    Mine started eating a bit of mysis just an hour ago. Got him last Thursday. So relieved.
