My Eye Biters weren't touching the flakes I gave them due to their recent move, so I purchased this product and they ate it up right away. Plus it comes in multiple sealed bags and si oderless!

"Far better than SFB brand!"
Do a side by side comparison-thaw one of these cubes in a bit of water, next to a SFB cube. The Hikari water will be clear, the SFB water will be red. What I do not understand is the other reviews claiming the SFB brand is better-the Hikari is full-length worms, the SFB are torn up chunks.
Lest you think I am just raving about Hikari, I do not like their dry foods, which seem filled with too much wheat and corn and the like. I prefer the Omega One and Spectrum foods, which are made with more natural ingredients.
The magazine advertisements for this product show clean, plump,perfect specimens. Unfortunately in my experience that certainly is not the case in reality. Now, I wasn't born yesterday, such is the nature of advertising. But I certainly expected more from this company. My prior experiences with their other products has been very positive. But this product does not live up to the claims made for it. There are other frozen products who do not make such grand claims that are much better in quality.
my fish seem to really like these bloodworms, they are just the right size. if i leave it in my fridge for a while it seems to dry out and the worms become a white color. so i recommend buying the smaller packages.
Work well for feeding smaller fish. My Apisto's and Cory catfish certainly love this product. Larger fish though, such as adult Angel Fish and bigger Central American cichlids may be put off by the smaller pieces of this product - resulting in excess/uneaten food in the aquarium. I like the 'fortified' quality of this Hikari food. Vitamins and nutrition added to this product make it easier to justify offering on a more consistent basis. I believe this is a good product for the keeper of small to medium sized cichlids.
