    Can you feed mysid shrimp cyclop-eeze, or does it have to be baby brine?
    Hatching seems like a chore. :yuck:

    You can use powdered up flake food. But keeping the water clean will be harder. You can also use frozen brine and mysid as food for them. I do all three.

    The mysis in my tank will eat: Flake, dead hermit, other mysis... anything really. They mysis I have in a bucket by themselves will eat other mysis(not suggested as it fowls the water quickly), and hatched brine.


    I would really suggest the freshly hatched brine. Its not that hard. Gallon jug, airstone, 1.015 salinity(what I keep my mysis at as well), and then I seperate these out into two mason jars... Feed a little bakers yeast and they are good.
