I`m sure you can. And yes make sure you dont over do it as you will have water quality issues if you do. I`ve really never had a good luck with freeze dried foods. They sell that in a frozen also.

I would say if you soak it, it may just turn to mush.

Actually, the frozen is pretty tiny too! I use just a bit of frozen with mysis once a week. Like you mentioned, I'm worried about having water quality issues if I use it too much. Even though it is small, they still go after it.

They also sell it in flake too. I use that once in a while mixed up with my Prime Reef flakes. Only issue I have with that though is that it seems to float - it just won't sink!

I use the frozen bar. I shave off a piece w/ a razor, very thin slice maybe 1x1" max. for a 55 gal heavily populated tank(fish and coral). Planktivores really appreciate this food. My chromis and Occ. clowns go nuts over it. FWIW I noticed my blue/green chromis's color really perked up after starting cyclop-eeze a 2-3 times a week(along w/ more frequent feedings in general).
