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. 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

SEA MONKEYS are not the "type" of brine shrimp you can feed to your fish.

this is from the sea monkey website

Sea-Monkeys® are a unique species of brine shrimp, known by the scientific name of Artemia NYOS. We not only unlocked the most elusive secrets of their life cycle, we created new formulas to keep them alive under conditions found in the average home—an accomplishment never before achieved! Finally, after years of crossbreeding, we developed a hybrid. These amazing new hybrids grow larger and live longer than any "natural" variety of brine shrimp. Resulting from the most exquisitely sophisticated “aquaculture technology”, by true pioneers in this science, only the utmost resources of a leading marine biological research center working for a span of many years has made this project a complete success.

I raise "sea monkeys" in a sun tea jar. I use multiple jars(3-4) so that I have a constant supply. My angels, tetras, killies, and guppies love 'em. Good food for raising fry, too.
