I read all of the positive reviews about this product and I decided to place the order. I was excited to add some variety to our Betta's diet, which has been limited to pellets for the past year.
I was anxious to feed the blood worms to the Betta, basically imagining a dog wagging his tail in excitement. I was disappointed when the Betta rejected the blood worms.
At first, he would bite the blood worm and immediately spit it right back out, continuing to search for food. Even after a day without feeding, my Betta just does not like the blood worms.
I even tried feeding him a mix of pellets and blood worms, but he will only eat the pellets.
I looked at this like a restaurant review, but from my fish's point of view. This may be food, but it was so bad, that the fish will not eat it. If I can't stomach food from a restaurant, I would not give me a good review. This product may be great for every other fish on the planet, but not for our Betta.

Thank you for your review. Bettas are finicky eaters, and will not readily accept new foods. They generally do love bloodworms, to the extent that they will choose them over any other food. However, as you noted, not all fish are alike. You will typically need to mix the bloodworms with his normal food for several days, if not a week or two. If he does not accept it after this period of time, please give us a call at 1-800-526-0650.
