Sea Monkey Snacks???

I am so wanting to buy Sea Monkeys for Lebron to have as a Snack. Can Betta Fish eat them? I mean, they are Brine Shrimp so why not? If they can eat them, what about the Sea Monkey's Food? Can I feed the Monkeys if they ate their Food? They're also Saltwater. What about that?
Sorry about all the Questions. :/ I want Lebron to try Live Foods for once. I should try that Mosquito Larvae in a Bucket Trick too. I'll try it right now!!! If anyone can answer my Questions about the Sea Monkeys, Please Post.
Thanks!!! :)

Good question LebronTheBetta...ya know I have wondered about that too. Seems like a good idea as they could chase them around maybe. Hopes someone can answer it for us !

I know how you feel. I've heard that they could eat them, but...

I've heard numerous reports of people feeding their fish sea monkeys with no ill effects, but personally, I wouldn't do it. I believe there's some sort of chemical process involved in keeping the eggs viable for longer and that may not be safe for Lebron.

If you do decide to go ahead with this, feed the "monkeys" spriulina powder. It'll gut-load them and is probably better than the food they come packaged with. Your other option is brine shrimp egg kits. Apparently they have a 90% hatch rate if the eggs are stored properly.

It is natural for Brine shrimp eggs to hatch after coming in contact with water even after long periods of time. there are no additives. this is a survival mechanism these guys have developed to survive long periods of drought in inland salt lake areas.
but IMO buying brine shrimp eggs will be much cheaper
