Has anyone tried PE Calanus for feeding their seahorses?

I just saw this new product from PE:

PE Calanus are a decapod zooplankton sustainably harvested in the pristine arctic waters at a unique stage of their life cycle using a patented, environmentally friendly method.   During this active phytoplankton feeding stage, PE Calanus are naturally bio-encapsulated with essential fatty acids resulting in a highly nutritious diet.

It looks to be a bit smaller than most mysis, but I haven't found a really good picture of it yet.

I've tried it. The actual size of the calanus is very small, my adult erectus didn't seem really even recognize them as food I can show you a picture of how big they are if you want (they are reddish-orange, and smaller than a grain of rice.) I'd think that perhaps juvenile seahorses transitioning from brine shrimp to frozen mysis may enjoy it better. Maybe your horses will like it, I can't say  ;D
