Has anyone tried using commercially decapsulated/dehydrated brine shrimp nauplii in place of 24-48hr post-hatch brine shrimp?  Even wroking within sight of the Great Salt Lake, we are having difficulties obtaining good quality artemia cysts.  We are doing some experiments with a product from INVE Aquaculture (not an endorsement of this company) that costs about ½ of the artemia cysts by weight and is 100% usable. Thanks - Sharon
