Fun fact, worms are not at all insects....shrimp and spiders are more related to inse ts than worms.

You dont have to rehydrTe them. The cubes are fun because the fish can pick at it when you stick it to the glass, but might be too much food dep. On how much fish you have. Just drop the food in like flakes or pellets

Thanks for the tips on feeding these items to my fish. I have a school of 12 neon tetras, 5 pygmy cory's, 1 SAE and a bushy nose pleco and about 10 ghost shrimp.

as for the worms I'd have better luck convincing her that the sky is purple and birds poop M&M's.

Also noticed that the bloodworms are loose and the tubifex worms are pressed into a cube any reason for that?
Just feed them as you would do with flake food. For the tubifex cubes, your could either tear them apart or press them onto the front glass.

I have 6 pea buffers plus 6 bumblebee gobies (all predators) in this tank, yes they are not peaceful but fun to watch when they chasing each other for territory....this is nature....to make sure everyone gets their share of food I will put live black worms into 4 corners when I feed them. so far so good
