Could you summarize this discussion for us?  Do they sink or float?  How
willing are fry to eat them?

Me too.  It sure sounds like an easier way of feeding brine shrimp to fry
that don't absolutely require moving foods.  The decapsulated cysts should
be higher in nutrition than frozen baby brine shrimps, too.  Plus it's a
good way to use cysts (eggs) with a low hatching rate.
