I just bought a 2inch black ghost knife but I would like it to gorw as fast as possible. Will bloodworms be OK as food?

Sure, as long as you can get them to eat them.
Actually, that's not true. You'll have to offer a better variety of foods. You must quickly find something that they will eat, and feed them plenty so they'll survive. Then add other foods to the menu until they're eating a good diet. Man cannot live on bread alone, nor can a Black Ghost abide only bloodworms.

I'm having problems feeding it frozen bloodworms. Where do I need to put it so he'll eat and and it won't scatter all around the tank

Maybe you should get a Hagen Worm Feeder.

I can't recomend frozen blood worms as a diet staple for any fish as it is not very healthy for them because of there exoskelotons making them hard to digest.

Thanks guys for your replies!

Will you recommend rinsing the frozen bloodworms first before placing them in the tank?

The excess blood makes my tank water dirty.

Thanks!

I'm a new to this hobby. Smile hope you'll understand my ignorance

BGK are bottom feeders. Do I put the cone at the bottom of the tank?

by the way, my black ghosts only eat frozen blood worms and that dried worm cubes. The problem with this is that dried cubes only floats. So I can't recommend it.

They didn't eat the singking fish pellets I bought them

anymore food you can recommend for this fish?

Guppy fry, molly fry, beefheart, squid, daphnia, tubifex, most of those work pretty well.
