Do you HAVE to defrost it before feeding, or can I put a cube in the tank while it is still frozen and have the fish "work" on it? Since I read that some people throw the whole frozen cube bloodworms in the tank, I think frozen should be alright.

I worry though if it is possible for the fish to break a big, half defrosted piece of and choke on it. :(

What do you think? I'm kind of almost against feeding it frozen.

I always defrost mine, just because I guess, I never really thought about it. But with fish there's no worry of pneumonia because they don't have lungs. I don't think it would hurt them to let them work at a frozen chunk. But it might dirty up the tank more since bits of it would be melting slowly into the tank water over time.

I was thinking about feeding it frozen because I thought it might be the other way around; with it slowly defrosting the fish would eat off it every bit that is defrosted before it all falls apart.

I just defrosted it and cut/ripped it into small pieces.
