Hi guys. Not sure if this is the proper place to post this so please feel free to move it. I just fed some freeze dried blood-worms to my fish, and they seem to be having some problems swimming now. Its almost like they got a big gulp of air so they keep on floating towards the surface. So, they have to slant their bodies down, and keep on bobbing so as to not rise to the surface. This happened last time I fed bloodworms, too.  Any ideas as to what might have happened?

Thanks,
Dylan

Are you rehydrating them before feeding?

That is a good point Bets brought up when feeding freeze-dried foods.
