Frozen Enhanced Brine Shrimp

Many frozen food manufacturers offer enhanced brine shrimo. v20 says theirs is enhanced with photo, SFB offers a spirulina and omega enhanced, Reef Nutrition even offers a gut loaded product in their refrigerated line. Any thoughts on the best for ponies?

Personally I stick to Hikari frozen mysis augmented with live adult brine shrimp enriched with Dan's Feed. (at least once a week for live)
I don't like most enriched frozen foods as most of the enrichment ends up in the water, boosting chances of nasty bacteria growth.

Seahorses. Culture nanno, rotifers and brine shrimp.

Current Tank Info: Seahorses

Ditto on the mysid.

Then I stock my tank with tisbes, amphipods, grass shrimp, and occasionally mysid or enriched baby brine. This gives them variety in nutrition and something to hunt all day.

Sterile is not better. Successfully bred: Banggai. Restarting work on Ruby Red dragonets, Blue Mandarins, Davinci Clowns, Pink Skunk Clowns (not mature yet) and Lined Seahorses.

Current Tank Info: 125 gal tank, 40 gal refugium - 30 gal Ruby Red tank - 70 gallon erectus / mandarin tank
