Decapped brine shrimp eggs?

Has anyone tried feeding this to betta fry? Or are these still too big? I've been reading about them and they would seem like a good (and easy since no incubating/hatching involved) source of food for the fry but not sure whether the eggs are too big in size to feed the fry.

Anyone have experience with these?

I'm sorry for not answering, but what is the difference between decap and capsulated BBS? I never really got to ask that... It's a quick question involving the thread's topic so hopefully I didn't hijack your thread.

Chardzard - my betta in the avatar pic is a male....LOL. i would love if i could find a female w/ colors as vivid as his!

Bettaisbetter - decapped brine shrimp eggs are when the hard shell is removed so that the fish can eat the eggs directly. otherwise you would have to hatch them into brine shrimps before they can be fed. my understanding is that decapped eggs no longer have any hatching potential.

I've used decaps in the past for my spawns that are about 2 weeks old and older. Mine did see them as food. IMO, they are great to use if live foods are hard to find or are unavailable.
