they don't work. most worms slip right through the holes.
better off taking a small fish net, suspend while dipped in
the water laid off the corner of your tank. worms slip thru
gradually, and fish head butt the net to shake them loose.
cleanup is safer too - you need never touch the net head.

I feed my discus Hikari blood worms and this worm feeder works perfect.
are they alive? i can't find any place that sells liveblood worms, not that i'd wanna take the risk of growing misquitos. but if it's frozen, that's different. i forget the brand of the frozen bloodworms i have but they are really fat, wouldn't fit through the worm feeders, and i have 2 different ones. i do find however, the floating ring on the 2 pc worm feeders that's meant for holding floating foods in place does work very well.

I use the same type of wormfeeder and use frozen bloodworms...never a problem with them. The fish have a way of "sucking" the worms through the holes.
