thanks for the info Kathy. just wondering, you had mentioned to make sure the slabs were still somewhat frozen and to not allow them to defrost, any reason why. i ask because i was thinking about mixing some in to my own made food and wonder if it was possible to defrost some all the way and refreeze it. also, how much was shipping.
As with anything you freeze, once you defrost it and there are few (if any) ice crystals left in it- you need to use it very soon afterwards (days, not weeks).
The trick is to just slightly thaw these blocks so that you can slice them, package them and then get them right back into the freezer. They still need to be loaded with ice crystal so they don't deteriorate.
In your case, IF the remainder of the food you are using to make your home made food is fresh..then mix that in whatever manner you choose and freeze THAT mixture and then add in a little mysis (thawed) right before you serve it?
I think that for the almost 5 pounds I received the shipping was right about $10, probably a little bit less.
You can't beat this stuff! (I keep saying that...lol)
Wow. With the little pieces put them in a icecube tray so when you are running late for work and don't have time to feed the tanks tell your household members to pop a ice in the tank
This thread is due for a bump..ok someone asked me about it tonight, so here you go.
I have also made it a Sticky in the 'Fish Forum' so it will be easier to find
:fish: :eat: :fish:
It is the same species of mysis as PE--they are large and not enriched--I've never heard of enriched mysis.
