Feeding brine shrimp

At least Im pretty sure thats what the frozen cubes were. Since these are saltwater things is it still safe to feed to freshwater fish? Right now I alternate between flakes and bloodworms.

Brine shrimp are relished by most freshwater tropicals, whether live or frozen. The miniscule amount of salt is not an issue. Small freshwater crustaceans are a natural food item in many areas of South America and SE Asia, hence most fish will enjoy brine shrimp.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
