    So I've already made the stuff part of my regular feeding schedule. I feed Formula 2 pellets in the morning and a strained cube of brine at night. I make a point of buying http://www.oceannutrition.eu/products.aspx?Product=frozen-brine-shrimp-plus-formula as I've been told many a times that the enhanced version carries some nutritional value but I'm still a bit skeptical. I know live brine only stays nutritional for half a day or something along those lines....

    Is there any truth to enhanced brine? Or is it just sales gimmick?

    Well the one you linked is basically regular food flavoured with brine shrimp to make it more appetising. The super shrimp are gut loaded whole brine shrimps. Both are good IME.
