Question Brine Shrimp?

I read somewhere that bettas can eat brine shrimp. Is that true? If it is, does anyone here raise their own brine?

Also, just out of curiosity, why are moon tails so exspensive? i prefer crown tails, but looked up moons on aquabid and my eyes popped out almost x3

They love brine shrimp. Although I've heard they do get messy with it-tearing it apart and what not. I don't even feed mine brine shrimps (I do mosquito larva) but I do know you can culture them yourselves and feed them to your bettas. But you can also feed them the frozen brine shrimp you find in the petshops, just make sure you thaw them first

Halfmoons are expensive because they are the most in demand show fish. More HMs are shown and bred than other fin types. Also they are somewhat difficult to raise (believe me on that.... their fins never want to stay perfect).

Their fins are very regal-looking to me. Half-moons are beautiful but I prefer crowntails~! Thanks for telling me this. I didn't know there were actual fish showings...or something like that.
