seamonkeys- can I substitute marine flakes for their food?

Anytime I mention the word "seamonkeys" I wonder if people think I'm a bit loopy but my kids got them as a gift from Grandma and are enjoying them. However it's a bit of a rip off because once you use the packet of food they supply that only lasts a month(or a few days if you kids get it and spill it!) you have to order more at $3/packet/month plus $6.50 shipping! If these truly are a marine shrimp - wouldn't they survive on marine flake food? Honestly I'm not willing to spend almost $10/month to keep them but we can spare a few flakes to feed them.

Check your lfs. You can normally get it for much much cheaper there. That's where I used to get mine at about $1.50 for a small container that lasts for a very long time.

Spirulina powder (or powdered spitulina fish flakes) will keep your sea monkeys happily fed.

OSI makes a good spirulina flake that's very low moisture and crushes to a powder easily.
