    joe: I think they are quite picky but i've heard of many people feeding them flakes so eventually they must come around ;)

    joe: some people feed only frozen for ages. Just make sure to feed a variety of frozen. Many people only feed brine which isn't very nutritious when compared to mysid or others. Just feed with a seafood mix and frozen mysid
