WOW, what a difference

so i got some mysis shrimp (well, mini mysis, san fransisco bay brand) today and WOW what a difference!! the fish went crazy! i recently purchased a maroon clown, that wouldnt eat the formula one that i had (soaked in garlic), so i bought some mysis and WOW!! he went to town!! as did everything else, the yellow watchman goby, which ive had for a month, barely showed his face, and when i added the mysis, he came out in the open, on more than one occasion!! YAY!!!

Yeah, my fish love the mysis shrimp I feed them too. I make my own frozen food made up of mysis, clams, vitamin c, garlic, mussels, and octopus. A regular sea food medley and they eat it up.

Everything in my tank comes alive when I feed frozen too. They love it! Glad you found something the fish love!

Is that the frozen cube food? If so, I couldn't get anything to eat it because it sank to the bottom and all my fish are used to floating food. Mine is still sitting in the freezer.

I mix both brine and mysis soaked in Zoe, Selcor and garlic. Every one goes crazy!

soak the cube in a glass in clean water until it melts, then pour through a net, invert the net in the tank to release the food. the "juice" is bad for the tank, and it will spread out a lot more that way.

Mine never melted, it was gel based. I soaked it for a couple of hours one day and then gave up. Now, I just use the frozen brine and mysis and somethimes throw in a little flake for variety.

Do you mean those formula one frozen cubes will "melt" and then you get rid of the liquid and only feed the pieces? Sorry I was a bit confused. I usually just cut it up then feed the pieces and I haven't had a problem for 2 years now.
