Brine shrimp

I am currently feeding my fish frozen mysis shrimp. the brand is Pristine Entergetics. Sorry about the spelling. I also want to give them a variety of food. If i give them brine shrimp, how much should i put in the tank?

Is it forzen or alive? I would say if its frozen experement with different amounts until they consume it all with no left overs...therefore start small and work your way up. If its a live however I'm not sure I've nevber used it.

The brine shrimp has no nutritional value, more like junk food (candy). So I would only give it to them as a treat. As Seriousdude said "experiment" and don't allow a lot of waste or you will find yourself doing a lot more water changes!
Good Luck,
Jason

What kind of fish do you have? The Mysis Shrimp are good but you should use a more vitamin enriched food like Formula one and up depending on your fish.
I feed my Clowns, Blu Damsel and Royal Gramma flake food in the morning (Formula One and Prime Reef) and in the evening I feed them cut up frozen Formula One and Frozen Brine or Mysis Shrimp for desert. My Mandrin seems to like the shrimp too.
Good luck,
Jason
