If you slice the block when you receive it as I demonstrated in the first post of this thread you will end up with a variety of sizes of mysis that will be readily eaten by fish of many sizes.
My clowns were about 3/4 " when I got them and my largest fish is 7+ inches and all could easily find pieces to eat when it was placed in the tank.
Unless you are feeding some incredibly gigantic fish, I don't see it being an issue..then again whales live on plankton

Got the order today. Did not open the food yet since I got home late and didn't feel like it. So, it's in the freezer until I slice it up tomorrow.

This is where an intervention is required....I knew this hobby was addictive, but I think when you get to trading corals for food, it's become a problem

Lol, that is hilarious.
The pecan icecream isn't mine, so can't trade.
However, the mango sorbet and frozen peaches are mine. We can workk on soething for that.

Cut it up today, not easy to distinguish a size difference between this E. pacifica and the mysis packs I used to buy in cubes.
Looks the same to me.


4 ziplock freezer bags, each with 3 slabs. I will repackage them tomorrow. I'm going to wrap each slab in foil to protect it further.



Everybody loves it (rinsed in RO water and allowed to steep in a bit of selcon, garlic, reef plus)

just broke off my first chunk - this mysis is big and fat!!! you can see the fatty globule (orange)! the block was ALL mysis - very little water. my wrasses and tangs devoured it once it hit the water. thanks john for the great pricing!
