Same cup works but make sure that you are cutting down on the amount of brine and not just adding more food...

Dried seaweed you put on a clip or rubberband it to some rock on the off days.

I'd get in the habit of rinsing the brine or myisis of the frozen cube water, not just melting it. It's full of phosphates. FW rrinse will do. Then add a few drops of vitamin like Zoe and some Garlic Guard to fortify it more.

Food for thought, I prefer to feed small portions twice daily, but work often forces once per day. You can use a small brine shrimp net to thaw frozen foods such as mysis, cyclop-eeze, etc. And then add to tank. Adding supplements such as vit. C, garlic, etc is worthless if it is not injectable or soakable. Frozen foods like bloodworms and mysis will not soak liquids up, which will just go through the water column and eventual filter. Algae such as Nori can be soaked in liquids unless, as I said, you inject food with it.

Even though the shrimp is no longer frozen once it is rinsed and mixed - still think it won't absorb the liquids?

Nope, unless you miraculously revive it and gut-load it vits :p. Any liquid stays topical and if there was any internal "soakage" it would disperse in the water. Soaking Nori is effective and easier imo. Spirulina (I prefer powder) is another great addition!
