Feeding SPS Baby Brine Shrimp

Hello. I have a few SPS frags (acros and montis) and was wondering if I could feed them baby brine shrimp.

I have never seen SPS benefiting from direct feeding in terms of growth, healthy or color. They mostly ingest single organic compounds(mainly proteins) that stick up to the mucus web around the polyp and direct absorb the dissolved organics. Thats why anything aside from fish poop is unnecessary.
