Brine shrimp from what i heard is like us eating chips, a tasty treat, but not a good diet. It should be fortified to help give some nutritional value, some come already that way.

If you are going to feed brine (which I would not do all the time) I would feed frozen and make sure it`s vitamin fortified. Variety is always the best option when it comes to feeding.

Add Zoe to it also. That's a vitamin in addition to the immune boosting garlic.

What are your nitrate readings? I said the neon, becasue its very small.
