Yes they are and yes you can.

My response is based on the literature and not on experience.

Based on the literature filter them through a coffee filter and then rinse them before inducing them into your tank.

Brine shrimp are raised in very brine water (very salty), which is why most people rinse off the shrimp prior to feeding the fish. When I fed them to my fish, I never rinsed them out. I just syphoned some of the brine shrimp and squirted them into the tank.

Sea Monkeys are a lot more expensive than brine shrimp though, you can get a box of brine shrimp eggs for around $3.

Yeah, love the marketing. Sea monkeys sound more exotic and rare compared to brine shrimp.

wat is the difference then b/w them?

No difference between sea monkeys and brine shrimp. As I mentioned, sea monkeys sound more exotic and therefore, have been marketed that way.

oooh exotic.....lool

Yeah. In the same line...

Like you can sell some Dihydrogen monoxide to terrorists groups, with the following information:

1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
2. it is a major component in acid rain
3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
4. accidental inhalation can kill you
5. it contributes to erosion
6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients

I wonder how many will actually buy them :D

why are you talking about Dihydrogen monoxide? and terrorists and death? :confused:
