    If I read the post correctly, Mysis Shrimp should only be feed to Discus of 3" and larger? I imagine the shrimp are large in size??

    And thanks Al for doing a great job on the Mysis Shrimp History. I have always enjoy reading your articles and have always found them informative.

    Keep up the great work.


    Cheers,

    Chi.

    It is great idea Al. feeding them Mysis shrimp. I will found out if it is available in our market.

    Right now I am hatching the brine shrimps in order feed the fries.
    Is it good thought to grow up the BBS and feed the adult as well?

    There's a city park about 5 minutes drive from me where the pond has what I believe to be mysis shrimp. I'd never feed 'em to my discus (parasites- the pond has frogs and other creatures including ducks) but its kinda neat to see them alive.

    I just received my Mysis order today. All my fish devoured them. I found that my Frontosas were very pleased. My larger Discus ate them up instantly!! I just dropped in a frozen chunk, & found that it did NOT cloud my water at all. It has been awhile since I've had Mysis shrimp in my food arsenal and I am extremly happy to have it back!!

    Al,

    Tried feeding mysis cause the nutritional info sounded sooo good. Fish wouldn't touch em though even though I tried feeding them for awhile along with the bloodworms and bay shrimp. Finally stopped trying

    I started feeding Mysis about a month and a half ago. My stunt is catching up with the 5.5 inchers!! Even the juvies look bigger everyday. I have fish pairing off everywhere!
    I paid 20 bucks for my last bag, but see that Jehmco is offering freeze-dried at more affordable prices.
    Has anyone tried it?

    Hi Karen ( KD) you don't need raise the mysis shrimps. I use mysis shrimps to feed my discus, Angels, Peacock cichlids, others. They love to eat them.

    I would do is when i take out mysis shrimps let them thaw i add Garlic Guard and lquid vitiamins in mixture for 10 to 15 mins i let the mysis shrimps soak up with garlic and vitiamins after that I feed them. I don't have problems with that.

    Let u know first time to feed your discus, they will not eat. They will eat a little bit, in few days they will eat.
