Angels: Need a clarity on feeding "Australian Black Worms"

Angels: Need a clarity on feeding "Australian Black Worms"

I need a clarity on this, this question may sound stupid but still ...

Can we feed "Australian Black Worms" to Angels ? (pic attached)
a) If NO, why ??
b) If YES, then can they be fed on a daily basis ?
c) If NO, why ??
d) If YES, will the bio-load have a effect on a planted tank in any negative way ?
e) If NO, any other side effects for the angels.

Should be fine to feed - Iíd make them part of a varied diet though. On the plus side for Australia, our bio-security is pretty strict so Iíd say pretty risk-free of disease / traces of meds.

The bio-load wouldnít impact a planted tank imo but way to test is keep an idea on ph / kh if soft water. Sudden decrease could be increased bacterial activity. Should be fine though in normal tank.

Feed flake and/or pellet food first and worms last. That has been the best practice IME with Angels and many other fish.

I've noticed a marked increase in nitrates when feeding live black worms or frozen blood worms in in my tanks, which are all planted. Perhaps it's just feeding more than I would when I feed dry foods, which I can't know because I don't weigh the foods though I do try to do a similar volume each time, but it doesn't seem to unbelievable to me to think that perhaps they're more calorically dense than dry foods. This is just an observation; I don't consider it a problem and it doesn't raise nitrates to an unacceptable level but I'm conscientious of feeding those foods too often, though of course for other reasons that's inadvisable as well.

Get bottom feeder clean up crew or change water more often. Getting a system down that works well is the first battle.
