While its true that mysis are more nutritional in many areas it does not mean brine are incapable of meeting most nutritional requirements.
Ive had fish for years as with many other fed primarily brine. I would be looking at other possibilities. Brine is a staple food for many fish and many tank, if it were not nutritional enough it would not be so highly used as a staple food source.
