Anyone use the Jumbo mysis from Hikari? How big are they?


New member
I'm searching for some good variety to feed my fuzzy dwarf lion, and would love to feed him mysis, but he completely ignores them.

I can get my LFS to special order the Hikari jumbo mysis, but before I do that I'd like to know that they are actually a reasonably large size for a 4" lion to take.

Any opinions on this?

I love the Hikari brand of food. I get the regular mysis and they are already de shelled and pealed basically. All you get is the meat. With other brands I see my fish spit half of it back out because its not the meaty parts.

Things may have changed since my pack, but my Hikari Jumbo "mysis" are NOT shelled. They are like small krill (with shells). Only my largest fish 5-6"+ will eat them, and then only the smaller ones, and only with some effort. They make great RBTA food, too :D
