When conditioning fish for breeding, high quality foods are a must. Brine shrimp is an excellent conditioning food, as well as a perfect treat for any fish. Although fresh brine is ideal, frozen, freeze-dried, flakes and pellets are excellent sources of nutrition for all your fish.
What I like most about Brine Shrimp Plus Flakes is the added seafood, plankton, and algae. Its a great combination for all species of fish.
Virtually all fish enjoy these pellets, however bottom feeders absolutely love them. One word of caution, the will cloud the water if not consumed entirely. Remove any uneaten pellets promptly.
Wardley makes a good all-purpose brine shrimp flake that is priced is very competitively, and is readily available in most areas.
The Nutra Fin brine shrimp flakes are a larger than average, which makes them especially suitable for larger fish. They are packaged in a sturdy plastic container that comes in a variety of sizes.
Osi brine shrimp pellets rapidly sink, which is good if you are concerned with getting them to hard to feed bottom dwellers. If you are looking for a product that floats a while before sinking, get the brine shrimp stars. Although they are labeled Marine, they can be used in Freshwater aquariums as well.
