    guess with zika and all the dengue outbreak in the past , they finally ban bloodworms although you might find a few of them in live tubifex worms.

    Live blood worms had been banned in Singapore many years back. Some young hobbyists here had never seen blood worms before and gets confused with tubifex worms. Blood worms are actually larvae and not worms

    Bloodworms: Aquatic larvae of small flies known as midges:



    Like what others have said, I have not seen live bloodworms for sale in the LFS since the 1990s.

    Not to be confused with Tubifex worms, which are aquatic annelid worms, and are closely related to earthworms:


    I know there are some locations in our drains and reservoirs where large numbers of bloodworms can be found in the sediment. A number of reservoirs have periodic swarms of adult midges, so there are likely to be many bloodworms hidden in the sediment, beneath rocks, or among vegetation. However, I think harvesting them is going to be very difficult, likely involves trespassing of some sort, and who knows what pollutants may be present.
    Small is beautiful.

    Yea, best thing to do is just thaw them before putting them in the tank. Personally I like thawing them in Garlic Guard.

    Yea sea view has them but you will need to ask they dont display it. Just go to the back of the shop where they keep the shrimps and tell the guy you wanna buy some blood worms live one's if not he will direct you to the frozen ones.

    Re: What happened to live bloodworms?

    I have always been told that live blood worms can potentially be be dangerous to feed unless you know they have been raised properly - ie no diseases etc. As a result many folks tend to use either live black worms or even the red worms used in composting (I have done these and they work great but these can get bigger size).

    My choice for feeding bloods therefore has been to use the frozen ones From the Hikari bio-pure line. I do the same for tubifex. As with any food the basic guidlines are similar. Feed what your fish eat in a few minutes, So put in a couple and watch, if they are gone fast, add a few more.

    Perhaps folks who do use the live ones can add something.
