I've got a couple kelberi that aren't quite eating straight pellets yet.

1)get your pellets and thaw out your bw cubes.

4)I use tons of pellets to the amount of bloodworms so I add water til it's pastey.

Stir it up and put in the fridge.
This lasts my 2 kels a few days. It's basically all pellets. I've been upping the amount of pellets every few days. It stays in the fridge and I add water as needed to keep it dough like in consistency.

I use the same method but I freeze it back so that when I drop it in the tank it floats and slowly sinks in pieces as it thaws.

This is what I do. I start cutting the frozen BW into little chunks frozen and drop them in one at a time. Once they start hitting those chunks then I go on and mix and re freeze. Then its Back into pieces but obviously its the pellet mixture. Then randomly throw in a similar sized pellet and it usually worked. Only done this once though.

PS. This should be a sticky cause it works great!

X2, I freeze mine into strips then break into pieces that look like food sticks, the shape helps me get them on food sticks and then they'll eat Massivore no problem.

I tried this method a little differently this week with great results and far less mess. I got some massivore pellets and cut them into 4 pieces each and piled them on a plate. Then I put a frozen block of bloodworms on top of the pellets and waited for it to completely melt over them. I took the bloodworms off and gave them to another tank of fish and fed the soaked pellet pieces to my 4-5 inch ocells and they are sucking them up. Ill try unsoaked pieces in a few days to see how it goes.
