Store protected from moisture, oxygen, and heat. A good suggestion is to store product in the refrigerator in an airtight container and take out only what you will need for a week, this can be stored at Room Temp in a ziplock bag or other container. Never use wet fingers to reach into the bag or leave the bag open.
Because these worms are freeze dried and almost all of the water is removed in the processing, there may appear to be less in hand. Feed your fish sparingly at first and be sure that all food is consumed before feeding more. A general rule of thumb here I personally use for larger fish such as discus is 1 cube per 2 adult fish per feeding, 2 cubes per 3-4 juvenile(3-4"fish). Besure there is no uneaten food after 15-20 mins
As for how many times a day to feed your fish, much is personal preference here and subjective, but 2-3 good feedings of quality foods like our Freeze Dried Blackworms is a fair baseline provided filtration and water quality is adequate.
Soaking and hydrating worms first is not required and may cause loss of nutrients from worms. Misconceptions about Freeze Dried Foods causing bloat abound on the web, however, if you feed a dry fish food to any extremely hungry fish they can over eat quickly. This includes pellets and flakes. If you have a fish experiencing this you should evaluate your fishing regiment, stocking levels, and the health of a fish .
The exception here is when feeding baby fish and fry. Though we do not recommend soaking our freeze dried blackworm products normally, It is often suggested to do so when feeding freeze dried products to very young fish (baby fish aka fry) as it aids in digestion.
Six months under ideal storage conditions ( dry,cool, etc) ..Additional shelf should be possible if stored in the Refrigerator or better yet, Freezer in an airtight container.Store protected from moisture, oxygen, and heat for longest shelf life.
