San Francisco Bay sells a brand of frozen Krill -
Sally's Frozen Krill. After defrosting and rinsing it
over a seive to get rid of tiny pieces, it is pretty
well recieved by lower level feeders. Would it work
with small rock bass?

It would be expensive for feeding a fish of that size
though. Could one buy canned shrimp and break them up
to size?

Does Mazuri make a sinking carnivorous food?

All the best,
