Mysis

From The Aquarium Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Mysis are a small white shrimp like creature. They exist in many water conditions including fresh, brackish, and marine. Mysis are highly regarded in the hobby due to their high protien, and omega fatty acid content. Mysis are generally a frozen food item, and though they may be found dried the livestock tends to accept the frozen type best. Combine Mysis with a nutrient supplement such as Selcon for a more complete carnivorus diet. Target feeding Mysis to LPS corals will increase their growth rate.

Brands[edit | edit source]

Most frozen food companies have a Mysis product. Among the best are Hori, SanFransico Bay, and PcMysis brands. Among the three PcMysis is the by far largest and will be un-consumable by some smaller fish.
