Hi kitten penang,

Sea monkeys are actually a variant of brine shrimp, so I'm not sure how different a food source they would be. If nothing else, I would imagine they're more expensive than generic brine shrimp eggs.

exactly, and out of food choices, brine isnt very nutritional. try giving live blackworms to your fish as a treat.
