Mysis = freshwater
Mysids = saltwater

Thanks for the correction! Now that I'm calling them by the right name, I was able to find lots of good info by googling "mysid shrimp".

Is one any better than the other as far as nutritional value goes? My fish love the mysis FW shrimp. RayJay thanks for the clarification I never noticed the spelling difference.

yes there are sw and fw types.

Im about to buy a culture thing of them from aquaculturestore.com (like 20 dollars for 100 of them). Im going to breed them for food for my new seahorses im getting in a month or two. Well actually a snack, i dont want them to get hooked on live food or ill be quite angry lol.

I purchased a pair of H Reidi's and placed them in a ready tank.
These horses fed on frozen mysis when I picked them up, but when I put them in the tank, they wouldn't touch the frozen mysis.
I soon discovered they were after the mysids hiding in the rock, and, althought there is no sign of mysids remaining, (check at night time with a red filter over a flashlight lens) the pair wouldn't eat frozen mysis, brine, blood worms, or anything I try, until yesterday when one of them has been seen to pick at two or three each feeding. The other hasn't begun yet but I'm hopeful.
It certainly didn't take much to get them off their feed for frozen foods, but it's a chore to get them back on again.
