 Hi
 
 Blood  worms  as  the  name  indicates,  is  almost  blood  red  in  colour  due  to  their  high  content  of  iron  porpyrin.   If  it  is  clean  then  it  is  one  of  the  best  natural  food  high  in  protein.   What  I  do  is  when  I  get  blood  worms  from  the  local  shop,  I  first  open  the  pack  and  dump  it  in  a  thin  meshed  strainer  (shrimp  strainer)  and  was  it  thoroughly  by  running  water,  until  all  the  smell  is  removed.   There  are  no  special  technique  for  clearning  blood  worms.
 
 Every  time  you  feed  the  fish,  you  need  to  wash  the  worms  with  water  thoroughly  as  it  is  highly  unsanitory  the  next  day  morning.   It  starts  stinking  the  very  next  day  itself,  even  though  the  worms  may  be  live.   Beware  to  keep  your  blood  worms  outside  your  house,  or  it  is  likely  that  your  pets  will  topple  the  container  in  which  the  worms  are  kept.   
 
 if  the  blood  worms  that  you  are  getting  are  not  red  in  colour  then  it  is  no  blood  worms  at  all.

 Tigermath,
 If  you  know  what  you  are  getting  is  tubifex,  why  do  you  want  to  call  it  bloodworms.   Better  you  change  your  thread  subject  to  live  tubifex  and  avoid  misleading  when  people  search  for  a  thread  in  future.

 I  agree  with  Madhu  here.  
 
 Also,  it  will  be  helpful  if  you  both  put  in  your  names  in  the  signature  and  location  in  your  profile  (danios).
 
 OT,  Madhu,  do  you  get  bloodworms  in  Salem?

 1.  Dump  bloodworms  in  a  strainer,  even  finer  fish  nets  can  be  used.
 2.  Wash  them  under  running  water
 3.  Add  one  pinch  of  potassium  permanganate  to  a  bowl  or  tray  with  water.
 4.  Rinse  the  net  with  the  bloodworms  in  the  tray  or  bowl  for  2  minutes
 5.  Wash  again  in  running  tap  water
 6.  Take  a  long  fish  packet  dump  the  worms  in  them  and  flatten  them  like  a  sheet  of  paper.
 7.  Store  it  in  the  freezer  and  can  be  fed  to  your  fish  on  a  daily  basis.
 8.  Can  be  stored  upto  3  to  4  weeks  and  then  replenish  your  stock.
 
 Hope  this  helps!

 Camy,
 
 Keeping  a  freezer  for  so  long  won't  it  lead  to  stink  as  we  often  find  when  kept  outside.

 No  it  wont  stink  if  its  in  the  freezer,  remove  it  break  it  into  pieces  as  required  for  your  fish  and  put  it  back  in  the  freezer.

 Potassium  permanganate  is  easily  available  at  your  local  chemist.Take  extreme  care  while  using  it.Even  a  single  grain  entered  into  eyes  can  cause  severe  pain
