growing mysid shrimp?

Is anyone growing their own mysid shrimp? Is it worth giving it a try or is it even practical to do so?

No, it is not practical. I have a pdf if you are really interested, but it can be rather tedious.

I've read that it is quite hard. You're better off growing pods in a sump or some brine shrimp in a little tank.

If you've ever had "sea monkeys" you've had brine shrimp :O Eh, well sort of. Sea monkeys are a hybrid made in a lab.
