I don't think bns really need protein on a daily basis?

none of them!

I feed bloodworms to my males when i am conditioning them but that is once a month at most.

Too much protein will kill your bristlenose

OK, what kind of fish do you have?

You know, folks often refer to their fishes as BNs and they turn out to be omnivorous, which are not really BNs.

Well, all of them are herbivorous, so forget about bloodworms and alikes.
