Storing Frozen Mysis Cubes

So since I'll only be using like a quarter of a cube per week, I was trying to think of a way to store the unused portion.

Could I just wrap it in cling film and stick it back in the freezer?

How do you guys go about doing this?

Do they not get freezer burn?

plastic wrap is fine in freezer but I'd be weary of the razor blade leaching out rust and stuff

I simply pop one out of the packaging and cut it in half. Throw the unused half back into the plastic and don't even cover it.

Won't it stink out the freezer like that?

If your power fails for over 24hrs.. pl most likely.. they really don't give off an odor when properly frozen.
