I could be wrong but isn't brine shrimp a bit of a better natural laxative???

No, brine shrimp is a snack for fish that can cause constipation and bloat if fed too often.

ok.. thought it was very possible I was wrong. Never used it for that reason. I think it was a vet on another site was saying that worked on ADFs but not for bloat.. just a once a week not very nutrient rich snack that had mild laxative effect(for them). Too many creature in this house to remember
