The best thing about Piscine Energetics Mysis shrimp is how rich and nutrient dense these freshwater crustaceans are, and how quickly that translates into well-conditioned, fat happy fish. The only catch all this time has been that if you wanted to feed PE Mysis shrimp, you had to cut it up yourself, which we have happily done for over a decade. Well the days of cutting PE Mysis down to size are numbered with the new Special Grade PE Mysis which is a size-sorted new frozen pack from Piscine Energetics.
The small Mysis shrimp that Piscine Energetics harvests tend to show up early in the evening, usually mid-way through the summer. It is a low density catch that used to be mixed in with the adults. Due to demand by mostly seahorse breeders and public aquariums, PE Mysis began sorting them as “Special Graded Smalls” in pink packaging last year. The new smaller size Special Grade Mysis shrimp is available as a 4oz cube or 16 oz flatpack, and are only available to dealers that buy directly from Piscine Energetics. [PE Mysis]
