Hi,

I feed the following frozen:

bloodworm, cyclops, brineshrimp,Moina and Mysis. The problem that I have is that alot of these food float, besides the bloodworm, what can I do?

Do you defrost before feeding? I feed the same things and I defrost all before feeding an none really float? I also rinse the blood worms well to get the "red juice" out.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.

Like TTA says, I use all those foods except Moina, and none of them float.

Now if you are using freeze dried they do float, you want frozen.

I allways use a fine teasiff like one of these:

Those are quite handy to defrost and afterwards rinse your frozen food before feeding.
