I would like to give fish food to my dews. I am wondering if there is a certain kind I should use or just the tetra food I already have on hand?
I usually just give them beta pellets. The leaves curl around them nicely .
I use fish food that is high in protein. For example, Omega One dried blood worms are 55% crude protein based on the label. I would test out the fish food you have on hand and see how your dews respond. It is fun to me to use the trial and error approach and learn from what happens in my growing conditions.
From my experience, dryed blood worm is the best you can use because it contain no additive.

I use freezed dried bloodworms. I pulverize them first, into a powder.
I just used some of the fish food on one of my pings and dews. The ping is drooling with happiness dews haven't really done anything yet. (I just found out which tentacles on the burrmannii go really fast, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Could I just simply put a whole freeze dried blood worm on a leaf and call it a day? I have a whole bottle of them going to waste under my aquarium. I stopped feeding them to my fish because they didn't like them

Blood worm are fine, but I would suggest thawing them out first as you might burn the leaf if its to cold, but yes blood worms are fine to use
The sticky ones are my favorite.
I also like to hydrate the beta fish pellets I use. I crush them to a powder and then add just enough water to firm a paste. I feel like this might make it a bit easier for the plants to digest, though I'm not positive.
I just placed an order and am expecting to receive a few sundews in the mail next week. These posts are great and very helpful!
