Frozen vs. Dried Cyclop-eeze

I'm assuming that the frozen is better but will the dried version suffice because I'm a bit short on money and the color on my fish isn't where I want them to be. Also if dried is okay, would you recommend the flake or powdered version?

i like the flake vs. powdered. keep it tightly sealed and it'll last a long time.

however, don't expect cyclop-eeze to instantly color up your fish. it just gives them a more rounded diet, promoting health, and thus better coloration.

I use both frozen and dried. Not having experience with the flakes, I'd go with the dried. It goes a long, long way.

My fish ignore the dried. Try the flake. I mostly use the dried for filter feeders and snails.

If you get the frozen online it'll have to be shipped overnight so shipping would about be $20 or more.
