Mysis shrimp / brine shrimp

Hello, just a quick question about shrimp for bettas. Is it ok for them to eat freeze dried Mysis shrimp? I read that brine shimp is ok for them, but all I could find was brine shrimp eggs.

The pet store sold me a jar of Mysis shrimp a week ago when I was really wanting daphnia to treat my betta for what I thought was constipation, but I later found out from here it is dropsy so now I have a jar of mysis shrimp on hand.

The guy said mysis shrimp was the same as daphnia. I honestly wonder how much knowledge he has about fish, because when I went back I was asking if they sold Maracyn to treat my betta for dropsy, and he didn't know what dropsy was and I had to explain it to him and he said he'd have to do some research on it.

Yes, bettas will eat mysis shrimp and no, they aren't the same as daphnia. I think the myis shrimp would be good for your fish if he will eat it. Rehydrate it before feeding.

Ok, I'll try the the mysis shrimp. How long do you rehydrate them? I put the shrimp in a dish of tank water and let them soak for 15minutes before feeding.

I rehydrate mine for about 5-10 minutes. Yeah, put it in tank water.
