From what I have read and have been advised on this site, no. The water the food is frozen in is filthy. I was told to thaw in ro or tap, then once thawed, totally discard that water. I actually rinse again in tap and then squeeze out all of the water. I then add thawed food to tank water and soak that with garlic Xtreme.

There are many on here with more experience than me. I am sure others will provide you with advice.

Regards,

SA

Put it in a net and use ro or tank water to rinse a couple times. You will see cloudy water at first then clear.

So once completely thawed, strain it over sink?

Yep the water it thaws in you will see how cloudy it is once you rinse it and put it back into the container you will see the differences.

To shorten time for thawing I slice the frozen brine shrimp into small pieces then run a dripping filtered water through it. While still in a fine net place it on a small container and soak it with Garlic Xtreme for 5 min. Using the feeding syringe inject it with same amount of tank water (net upside down) to drop it at the cap then suck it back to feed to your fish.

I thaw mine is a bit of tank water to do things quickly. I used to strain, but with 75 gallons total in my system so little phosphates in the water won't do anything compared to what was already in the water, though it is best practice.

So I've upped my w/c to every 7 days. I'm going yo start using rodi water today. I've also started to run a 40g sump and a skimmer. Is there anything else I should do to resolve this problem? I've cut back on feelings. 1 cube every other day.
