Blood Worms

I picked up some frozen Blood Worm cubes at Petco last week. I place 1 cube of mysis, and 1 cube of the blood worms in a cup with some selcon, zoe and garlic extreme and let soak.
Twice now I have fed this mixture and everyone seems to ignore the blood worms. I end up fishing most of them out with a net.

They rip the mysis up. They love it.

So my question is,
SW fish dont like blood worms?

I'm just gonna take em home and feed em to my FW fishies.

Blood Worms are not typically a saltwater fish food, However I know that Copper Banded Butterflys and Long Nose butterflys will eat them.

Different food for different needs. FW and SW eat different things and need different types of nutrition. SW fish will probably eat them but it might not have the proper nutrition that they require....Remember, variety is key to good health....
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
