Thanks for the info, Al.

> my vote for most nutritious food is for frozen mysids from piscine
energetics....those guys are really high in lipids and are a freshwater
animal to boot. <

I found an article explaining a technique for thawing mysids to retain more
valuable nutrition:

brackish copepod from northern canada that is bright red.<

Wow, this looks like an interesting product.

My local fish store also carries it, as well as the mysis.

I have some I. wernerii, and I think brineshrimp is large for them, so the
mysys will be too, right? But the cyclop-eeze should work.
