hikari mysis

My last packages (bought at same time) of hikari mysis (the small type, salt water??). the same as this: << but not bought from BRS had VERY small shrimp, that floated away from where I put them for feeding. Making a mess, ending up with more shrimp being lost and polluting tank than being eaten. Very frustrating.
**Where do you guys get your mysis, RECENTLY? I dont think it should depend on where, though. B/c mine was LFS that had great hikari before.
I was thinking to order it from a large online vendor b/c they have a larger throughput and the 'bad batch' should be out of their inventory (?). Though it's a lot more $ b/c of shipping, but worth it in the end.

I get mine at lfs, although I prefer San Francisco Bay as Hikari can be a little small for my seahorses.

I'll get one pack from LFS today and see if the sink or swim . If they 'swim' then i'll just order a few packs from << had good experiencce with them last time. I use hikari b/c seahorsesource reommends them, and I love seahorsesource . But I'll look at san fran also if hikari continues to float around b/c the horses are not gettng enough food overall if this goes on.
