Cool Mysis

 

Our new MYSIS DIET Enriched with SELCO is made with fresh-frozen mysis shrimp combined with high quality marine protein, garlic, high DHA marine oils, color enhancers and Vitamin C. But unlike over-processed, over-hyped and over-priced marine pellets found on pet store shelves, our Mysis Diet Enriched with SELCO is prepared using low-temperature drying technology, delivers as promised, and is reasonably priced.

 

Low temperature processing, unlike pelleting, extrusion, and conventional flaking surpasses all others methods for preserving lipids and vitamins and maintaining the integrity of marine proteins and attractants - giving our customers ever greater assurance that all the care, time and money that they spend on their show and reef tanks would be equaled by our product.

Our new COOL MYSIS Enriched with High HUFA Algae is made with fresh-frozen mysis shrimp* combined with high quality marine proteins, garlic, high DHA marine oil , color enhancers (Astaxanthin 400 ppm) and Vitamin C. But unlike over-processed, over-hyped and over-priced marine diets found on pet store shelves, our COOL MYSIS Enriched with High HUFA Algae is prepared using low-temperature drying technology, delivers as promised, and is reasonably priced.

Independent laboratory analysis has shown that the low temperature flaking process employed by Brine Shrimp Direct results in significantly higher protein retention and water stability than the conventional flaking methods used to produce store-bought varieties.

Cool cooking methodology, unlike pelleting, extrusion, and conventional flaking surpasses all other methods for preserving lipids and vitamins and maintaining the integrity of marine proteins and attractants - giving our customers even greater assurance that all the care, time and money that they spend on their show and reef tanks wll be equaled by our product.

COOL MYSIS, like all AQUANIX Flake Diets, not only has exceptional water stability, but it contains viable beneficial bacteria that can facilitate the conversion of fish waste and uneaten food into harmless microbial biomass and carbon dioxide - so you'll see an improvement in water quality as well as in the overall health of your aquarium.

This food has a very distinctive smell so be warned (my folks did not appreciate it when I opened the jar lol). However, I personally think the smell is appetizing when I think from the fish's perspective. Not much to it, my fish start smacking the surface when they see me grab this jar. Including my extremely picky Jaguar Cichlid. The fish eat it quickly so it doesn't foul the water or get stuck in the filter sponges. Even my guppies seem to like this more than their Hikari stuff lol.
If I had to describe anything else aside from smell, the flakes have a unique texture to them probably because of the unique process of how it is made. I received a lot of large flakes that my Jaguar Cichlid appreciated, and I was able to crush them up for my smaller mouthed fish like the young angelfish and my fancy guppy strains. The jar is clear plastic but of a nice hard quality that won't break if dropped (I definitely dropped it a couple times).
In conclusion, I have no reason to remove stars. My fish love it, I'm happy when they're happy. I will be ordering the 16 oz. jar soon!

At first they were wary of how big the flakes are, but I crushed them and now they love them. I have an adult Midas cichlid and an adult Red Devil cichlid. They go crazy when I approach the tank holding the jar now too. Strong smell, but not highly offensive and you can tell by the weight of the flake that its packed with good stuff. Hoping this company sticks around, I'll definitely order more!

My angelfish absolutely love this. I feed it to a breeding pair of mine and some juveniles as well. It really brings out their colors and even colors the eggs of the breeders a sort of orange! My juveniles have shown a lot of growth since I've been feeding them this. My fish have never looked happier. I can't recommend this enough

Looks like a good product as far as color and size size of the flakes. For some reason my Bala Sharks were not crazy about them.

My fish were hesitant to eat this at first but after a few days, they went crazy for it and began to attack it like a swarm of piranhas! I need more of it now and this is the only place I can find it. Can I have a discount please? Shipping is expensive!
