Always prefer frozen. I'd suggest Jehmco.com and buying it in bulk.

I converted to freeze dried years ago, my definite preference now after years of frozen foods. You can find arguments on either side, basically it comes down to personal preference. As for the fish, depends somewhat what they're used to, but I've never had an issue getting mine to take to freeze dried. I've also found freeze dried mysis, for example, to be a good growth food.

Neutrinoman, have you found a decent freeze dried? I've found its gone down hill and last couple times I got it I got a lot of dust rather than shrimp.

I've been using Omega One, last time I got it, mysis and regular shrimp, it was fine, typical bit of dust at the bottom, but at least 90% good pieces. Few months ago, hope it hasn't gone down hill since then. Been a while since I got freeze dried krill, San Francisco, I think. It was okay, too, but it's been a while since I got it.
