Default Feeding blood worms to dwarf siren

My recently acquired dwarf siren is very shy and only comes out from hiding in the sand when I turn the light off. is there any way I can tel if its actually eating the blood worms I put in?

Also whats the best way to remove them from the tank? I've been trying to use a net but Im not able to get all of them with it

You could try a feeding jar: I wanna see your feeding jars!

Keep in mind I have never cared for Siren and don't know how well the jars work with this genus.

As far as removing uneaten blood worms, a good old fashion turkey baster works very well! Just make sure you only use it for caudate stuff
