Only feed as much shrimp as your fish will eat in 2 or 3 minutes. Remove any uneaten food.

What is Mysis relicta?
Mysis are not a true shrimp though they do closely resemble and are, in fact a primitive relative of the shrimp found in the oceans. There are 58 genuses of mysis which make up the Mysidae family. PE MYSIS is 100% Mysis relicta which is one of the two types of freshwater Mysidae. All other species of Mysis are either saltwater or estuarine species. PE MYSIS are part of the zooplankton, the small invertebrate animals found in lakes that feed on microscopic algae (phytoplankton) as well as other zooplankton. In turn these organisms form the basis of the food supply for many fish.

THE BEST! Product Review by DAN ROOS (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: I just recently came across this package at my LFS and decided to give it a shot. This is much better than the individual frozen cube packages that you see around. These shrimp are a bigger and 1 package goes a lot further than the cube packackages. just a little bit is equal to several small cubes making it the ideal choice for saving money. as a suggestion i recommend either microwaving for 5-10 seconds or using hot water to defrost the shrimp then rinsing them in ro/di water. doing this ensures no parasites will be added from the food and into your tank. Rinsing with clean water also removes any possible nitrates that may be with the food. I like to soak them in kent garlic to add some enrichments that may have been removed while cleaning them. garlic is a huge benefit for boosting fish health, while reducing a chance of ich attacks

PEMysis Product Review by Bryant POE (Posted on 2/26/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: PEMysis is a first rate product! One, because it is 65 percent protein compard to 5-6 percent proteins in other foods I have used. This means I only have to use a fraction of an amount I would normally used. Secondly, PEMysis does not contain hardly any water weightcompared to 40-50% in other frozen fish foods I have used. Lastly, not only has the health of my fish improved 10 fold, the color has as well. Even though the price on PEMysis seems high at first the benefits and amounts actually used easily make up for the cost.

Great Value Product Review by TD PDX (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: The shrimp are frozen in a very compact manner--not just frozen in a lot of water, so a chunk the size of a cube in other products is a lot more actual food. I've had trouble getting the shrimp here still frozen both times I've ordered it but the service rep made it right both times.

some even have long antenna! Product Review by ERIK LUST (Posted on 12/6/13)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: These are about as good as they can get. Very few are broken and some are absolutely perfect with all their legs and antenna intact.
I've heard they are a little bigger than some brands but my seahorses have never had trouble eating them.
The one complaint I have is that I cut the ice cube trays apart so there are 5 in a strip but the little cubes are really close together and the foil isn't glued down perfectly so I usually end up with some which are open and will leak if they thaw or dry out a little. I always use them within two days at this point but they really could make their packaging a bit larger so there would be plenty of space between the cubes.
They did make their cubes more rounded recently so it is really easy to pop them out.

PE Mysis - Great Product Review by LAURIE (Posted on 10/30/13)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: These are the best mysis I have ever used. The size is large enough that I am able to work with them easily. My seahorses love these shrimp. They anxiously wait at their feeding station to gobble them up. Marine Depot is fantastic with their service and I received my order extremely fast and in great condition (still frozen).
