Default Mysis - frozen or freeze dried

Can't decide which one to go with, if anyone has any input that would be great thanks.

Vote for which one and maybe say why.

A little more information on Mysis:

http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showth...d-as-fish-food

I haven't gotten around feeding Mysis shrimp to my trophs, all my other fish love frozen PE Mysis shrimp. Never tried freeze dried, I just prefer my fish food to sink right away. I use PE Mysis because the quality of the product is good and I've been using them for years. If it matters, they harvest Mysis Relicta (freshwater Mysis) from Okanagan Lake, BC. Other brands Hikari, San Francisco Bay, doesn't specify what variant of Mysis they use, but my guess is a salt water variant.

pe mysis for me. if your running wet dry, frozen is the way to go. unless you shut off your tank during feeding time.

Three votes for frozen, ok.

Thanks for the link dahling, it seems that when I read through it the freeze dried bad more protein and stuff?

I can get 40 oz. of PE Mysis for $40 plus $12 shipping up here. So I think I may do that and split the price with someone so I can make sure the fish like it before I buy a full sheet.
