Mysis or Brine?

Hey guys,

I've had convicts for a few months now and they love brine shrimp. I just got my first Saltwater fish and Corals yesterday. My Cardinalfish seems to like brine shrimp, but not the Mysis. My convicts are fine with both. Opinions on what's better?

I wonder why tough corals are called hammers, and weak corals are called buttons...

From what I've read, mysis is more nutritious. I use both and my fish love either one.

Brine has less nutritional value then mysis.
However, mysis are normally a little bit bigger then brine.
There are nutrient enriched brine shrimps you can try.
Or you can soak the mysis in a little garlic and they should go for it.

I'd say both, but I'd make sure they are gut loaded or nutrient enriched, like stated above.
