feeding De-Shelled Non-Hatching Artemia Cysts to fry

Hi,

I'm brand new to Betta breeding and came across this product on Aquabid.com

It is called "De-Shelled Non-Hatching Artemia Cysts"
It claims to be better than fresh hatched shrimp and can be fed as is with no preparation.

Has anyone used this and can you tell me if it is a good source of food for new fry.

Thanks
Bruce

Cool

Yes it is possible to feed this, but, they are not alive and don't wiggle. The live food gets hunted down and attacked. Dead food lays on the bottom until they feel hunger pains. Also the decapsulated shrimp as they are called are more expensive. The BBS are not that hard to set up a hatchery, and it is great fun watching the fry go after them!!

There is a number of paste, egg, frozen and other foods for fry, but the greatest survival rates are always using live food.

Jeff.
