    Anyone ever heard of mysis shrimp? i was at the fish store today and i noticed that they didnt have frozen brine shrimp but what they did have was mysis shrimp(hikari brand) It says that its a good alternative to brine shrimp. What are your thoughts on these mysis shrimp? First time hearing about mysis shrimp.

    From what I have read, mysis shrimp are a decent food for bettas for example. I think one needs to rehydrate them in tank water before adding them.

    Well in that case you do not need to rehydrate them of course. :)

    I love frozen mysis shrimp. Feed it to all my fish and my African Dwarf Frogs love it too! Great food.

    Good question! I gave frozen mysis shrimp to my fish in the past and started up again recently. My tetras, loaches, and betta enjoyed them. The Angelfish wasn't sure what to think. I don't think he ate a single one.
