Frozen BBS

I don't have the time nor the patience to hatch BBS. I'm wondering if anyone has used frozen? Any luck? Will the fry eat them, and do they have comparable nutritional value to live?

I've tried frozen bbs, the adults love them, but unfortunately IME, the fry usually ignore them.

Thanks tpocicat! I wonder, since that probably won't work, are golden pearls more readily accepted? I've read that GP mimic the swimming action of BBS better, since they have tiny air pockets. I've heard very good things about GP, the only thing I'm worried about is convincing the kids that its actually food, LOL!

I have golden pearls of all sizes. I introduce them along with live foods so that they get used to them. Once they eat some, they realize it's food.
