    Hi, I got a dwarf gourami just a bit confused about feeding bloodworms I've read they should only have once a week as a treat on another site it say 4 times a week. And 1 day should be feed. I had one as kid but I don't remember the feed schedule form then.

    As far as I understan it. Blood worms contains very little nutriants in protien and is mostly fibre. So if you feed it to the fish as a staple they might lack other nutriants in the long run.

    @Lee.. agree with @pierreschoonraad

    Bloodworms are sweeties!!!!

    I don't think there is any fish that doesn't love bloodworms but yes... a staple diet and the worms as treats once or twice a week

    Don't forget the "green" need of gouramis(algae, cooked / blanched spinach or lettuce)
