Dear gilraen:

Piscine Energetics frozen Mysis relicta does have a superior nutritional profile and is a very desirable food source for seahorses and other marine fish. But he PE frozen Mysis is by no means a prerequisite for keeping Ocean Rider seahorses. If you find the PE Mysis difficult to obtain in Texas, your seahorses will be quite content with another brand of frozen Mysis that is readily available in your area. In fact, young seahorses often prefer the smaller Hikari frozen Mysis until they have grown large enough to handle the jumbo PE frozen Mysis.

Frozen Mysis is available in several different brands from many different sources. Gamma brand frozen Mysis is good, Hikari frozen Mysis is quite acceptable as is San Francisco Bay brand frozen Mysis, and Piscine Energetics frozen Mysis is perhaps the best in terms of nutritional content and quality control. Your local fish stores should carry one or more of these brands.

I normally obtain my PE frozen Mysis from Premium Aquatics because they offer it online in small quantities, and they offer it graded for size (when they have it in stock, you can obtain either small Piscine Energetics Mysis relicta or the usual king-sized PE Mysis relicta).

If you want to go with the PE Mysis relicta, gilraen, you can order it online from Premium Aquatics (see link below).

If Premium Aquatics is out of the PE Mysis relicta, which happens at certain times of year, your next best bet is to contact Piscine Energetics and obtain a list of the retail outlets that carry their Mysis relicta, as Leslie explained. Depending on where you live, you may be able to obtain the PE Mysis relicta from a local fish store in your area:

Best of luck finding suitable frozen Mysis for your seahorses, gilraen!

Happy Trails!
