Thanks for the info people. The one I am using right now is Piscene Energetics and I am happy with it. Since I am new to this kind of frozen food, I was wondering where you would get it for cheapest. I also heard there was a company that harvested them from Lake Okanagan and that they are in North Vancouver or something. It would be cool if you could get live mysis and breed them.
Yes there is a new company also offering Mysis. The biggest issue with Mysis shrimp is the oils in the food. This food should always be rinsed in freshwater to eliminate as much of the oils as possible. Otherwise it is one of the best foods to feed the majority of aquarium fish.
Best place to buy quality in bulk would be J&L Aquatic with their $40 for 40oz pack of Piscene Energetics. I am using Aquatic Treasures Mysis Shrimp right now. Got them for $11.99 for 8oz pack. The quality is really lacking I am finding. Lots of oil and small bits of mysis shrimp that get flush down the drain. How does this compare to Hikari? Has anyone tried and compare both brand?
I get my PE Mysis at J&L. PE is bar none the best mysis out there - big, fat and juicy with very high protein content. So big and juicy in fact that small fish like tetras may have trouble eating eat without pre-mashing on your part.
