I never heard of baby sun dried shrimp. I guess it would be ok if its like the freeze dried kind.

It says it is great for freshwater and saltwater fish! And the shrimp are small, but a little bigger then the bloodworms. I just thought my pair would like the variety!
With the conditioning and all. Does it matter how ling you condition them????

Brine shrimp (at least the stuff that I have) are pretty big and they can choke on large pieces.

I didnt know they could choke on such a tiny bit, but they are spoiled and knowing me I would have cut the shrimp up anyway! lol

they do bite off pieces of bigger food as well, they dont swallow or bite whole unless it fully fits in their mouth.

I dont give them any dried foods at all

Freeze dried food needs to be rehydrated before feeding.
