Well, I never knew that. Thankfully I never open bloodworm with a knife. I just pop-out a cube with my fingers.

Good information to now though

In fact I've found the best way to get a frozen cube out easy, is the run the back under cold water for 5 seconds, dead easy to pop-out a cube then from the pack, without defrosting it

I read your post and wish I had seen it before . I have been having a reaction to something all summer and just last night when I fed my fish blood worm I realized it has been the blood worms all along my eye s would turn red swell out , water itch so bad I would nearly feel like rubbing them out and it lasted for few days , even went to doctor who prescribed Reaction that helped but it keep happening a lot . ya every time I feed my fish now I make sure I don't touch the blood worm and wash my hands really will and avoid touching my eyes .

I myself have also had reactions to frozen bloodworms. Mostly just itchiness and irritated skin however on one occasion I must have inadvertantly touched my eye because I had a severe reaction similar to the one described by Rob Taverner in the 'Go Wash your Hands' article.

I didn't have any Benedryl or anti-histamines and within an hour or so I had a huge blister hanging out from my bottom eyelid and obstructing my vision. By the time I saw my doctor the next day the swelling had gone down a little but it was still pretty bad. He told me it was a 'Vernal Conjunctivitis' caused by an allergic reaction. He prescribed some eyedrops (I can't remember the name) and I was fine by the next day.

I still use the bloodworms but after feeding I immediately and thoroughly wash my hands and I haven't had a problem or reaction since.

its probably not the bloodworm them selves that caused this,mosquitoes prefer to lay they're eggs in stagnant water where any number of deseases can proliferate.

I'm surprised on the trop fish you haven't come in contact with fish which really should not be fed bloodworm. Malawi bloat for instance if often associated with a too high protein food, of course this is associated with african lake cichlids but similar is noted in other fish. You could feed the herb' african cichlids a rare high protein treat - but there would be no benefit for the fish and you would be risking it's death. So why do it when they love low protein anyway and keeping them in top condition would only require spirulina based food and mysis for instance ofr a treat instead.
