My S. bandensis feed only Mysis and frozen Mysis. Brine work for a short time, but mine don't like that much.
Copepods will be to small i think.
Mysis is a good food for the first 1-2 month, then you should start with some smaller ghost shrimps.

ive hear of people feeding them cyclopeeze do i feed the frozen kind or the flake feed
that stuff is okay I just like freshly hatched artemia cause it is high in proteins, amino acids, and enriches the mysid's right before you feed and can be helpful to your cuttles.
