Hi, im wondering if it's safe to re freeze thawed out bloodworm and use it? Every time I've gone to my lfs the bloodworm in the freezer are thawed out, my elephant nose needs it at night. What do you guy's think? At the moment he's eating live brine shrimp but I'm having to give him a lot as you don't get much in the bags. I don't want to feed him anything that could cause problems but at the same time he needs to eat. Any feedback would be great lesley

It won't kill him, but I think when you re freeze food, you lose a lot of the nutritional value. It'll fill him up no problem, it just probably isn't the healthiest thing he can eat in terms of nutrition

That's fine, just wanted to make sure. When I thawed a cube out for him last night the smell was awful i ended up throwing it out. I'll just make sure to give it a good rinse. Thanks

I vary his diet a lot but at night he seems to like his bloodworm
