Brine Shrimp are a very common food for fresh and saltwater fish, but do not hold much when it comes to nutritional value, but when gut-loaded they can provide the same nutritional characteristic of the food that is contained within the gut of the brine shrimp. Brine shrimp are commonly used to entice new, or finicky fish into eating frozen foods. Hikari's Spirulina Brine Shrimp's are gut-loaded spirulina algae which is renowned for its protein content, as well as containing all the necessary amino acids.
Feed only as much as your fish will consume in a 1 minute period multiple times a day. It is best to feed very small amounts multiple times a day over a single large feeding. Fish will naturally graze and scavenge for food throughout the day and by offering different foods multiple times a day will mimic their natural feeding instincts and lead to better coloration and overall healthier fish.
