We buy the smallest one we can find and seal it in a food saver bag. Lasts about 2 to 3 weeks untill it starts really breaking down.

Not trying to hijack your thread..but I blanched some last night for mine for the first time. They swam around it for a few minutes like hungry sharks taking nips here and there..then they moved in for the kill. Apparently they like it! lol!
