Replacement for Brine Shrimp.

Hi everyone,

Has anyone ever tried using 'Golden Pearls' as a replacement for brine
shrimp?  I have not tried it on any freshwater fish but I use it for my
Clownfish fry & it works just as good as brine shrimp.  I've attached a
description of the product at the bottom of this post.

Golden Pearls is a revolutionary new larval diet that has successfully
replaced live Artemia nauplii in marine fish hatcheries in Europe. A
patented processing technique  (agglomeration of micro-encapsulated
particles) resulting in feed particles or "clusters" that resemble
raspberries (under the microscope). 
Golden Pearls have tiny air pockets  that keep the feed particles in the
water column, not on the bottom of the tank, and mimics live brine shrimp

Golden Pearls are available in six particle sizes: 
	Active Spheres Golden Pearls 20-80 microns
