Bloodworm question

Does anyone know what it is about frozen bloodworms that cause fish to breed more?

Protien?
I don't think there is anything in particular that bloodworms have to get fish to breed. It seems that if conditions are right and the food is varied then breeding should occur.

I agree. Bloodworms have a lot of protein in them, which can help get females become gravid. Producing eggs is tough on the body, but if ample food is provided it is much easier.
