 I  don't  rely  much  on  BHM,  except  for  discus  and  even  for  discus,  only  if  i  don't  get  live  blood  worms.   The  fishes  you've  mentioned  can  do  absolutely  well  with  bits  may  be  you  can  add  tubifex/blood  worms  if  you  have  access  to  them.
 Tubifex/Blood  worms  for  invariably  all  small  omnivores/carnivores,  prawns  for  bigger  carnivores  &  blanched  palak  for  africans  (Fronts  &  Duboisiis).   This  is  what  I  feed  them  mostly,  not  to  mention  a  supplement  of  pelleted/bits/stick  food.
 And  AFA  your  experiment  is  concerned,  just  try  to  do  the  same  in  morning  or  even  better  noon,  to  make  sure  it  is  not  affected  by  atmospheric  temp.

 Frozen  BHM  or  frozen  blood  worms,  no  matter  what  ever  feed  it  is  ,  u  can  just  add  it  straight  from  the  freezer  directly  in  to  the  tank.  
 
 I  have  housed  various  cichlid  fries  in  20  gallon  tanks  and  i  feed  them  with  frozen  blood  worms  or  frozen  beef  heart  based  on  the  availability.  There  is  no  problem.  
 
 Thanks

Hey!!!
   
 
   Madan  just  on  a  different  note  here,  Do  you  mean  to  say  that  we  can  just  directly  add  an  ice  cube  into  a  water  and  still  will  not  have  a  change  in  temprature  in  a  small  environment,  I  think  otherwise.  Note  that  i  do  not  have  a  thermostat  on  my  small  tanks.  300W  heaters  what  i  am  talking  about  are  there  in  my  bigger  show  tanks.
 
 
 Raghu                

 
 Depends  on  the  size  of  the  ice  cube.  If  it's  300  cc  in  size  and  the  aquarium  is  10  liters  the  calculations  vary.
 
 1  CC  volume  frozen  food  will  not  cause  any  perceptible  rise  in  temparature.
 
 Feed  the  fish  a  1  CC  frozen  food  cube  and  check.  They  will  gulp  it  down  in  30  secs.  low  temperature  or  what  ever.
 
 I  don't  know  what  you  did  and  how  you  measured  the  drop  of  3  Deg  C,  in  roughly  40  liters  of  water,  just  3  cubes  of  about  1  CC  each  cannot  cause  this  high  a  drop  in  temperature.  Physics  of  heat  transfer  is  the  same  everywhere,  it  does  not  selectively  change  from  place  to  place.  It  is  a  function  of  difference  in  temperature  and  mass.  The  mass  of  the  surrounding  water  is  many  times  the  mass  of  the  frozen  food.
 
 Don't  believe  anyone  here.  Read  up  any  Std.  10  or  12  Physics  book.  You  can  calculate  everything  for  yourself.  Google  will  give  you  all  the  fundas  you  need  to  check  this.
 
 I  guarantee  you  that  the  change  in  temperature  will  be  so  minute  it  will  not  be  measurable  with  any  aquarium  equipment.
