Facts about Freeze Dried Bloodworm
Bloodworm (Chironomidae tetans) are the larvae of the midge fly. Bloodworm are small (3 cm), long, thin and bright red larvae. In the wild you will find them in stagnant pools.
The bloodworm has red iron-porphyrin protein in its blood and tissue which gives it its characteristic colour. This worm is crucial in the wild aquatic food chain. Therefore, it is one of the first live foods fed to virtually all aquarium kept freshwater aquatic animals.
Aquarists all over the world use bloodworm as fish food. In the wild, almost every fish species eats blood worms or other larvae, This means even the pickiest eaters will generally accept it. In fact, some types of fish will not consume pellets or flakes under any circumstances and should be raised purely on a diet of live and frozen foods – including bloodworms!
