Best is to hatch them yourself. Never seen any live one for sale locally, they lose their nutritional value after 24-48hrs after hatch as they consumed their own yolk sac I think. If this is not for fish fry, get the frozen one.

For discus you should setup 2 hatcheries from liter soda bottles, salt and an air stone. Pretty easy to have a constant supply of bbs for the fry. Google for videos on how-to.

I received a recommendation for Instant Baby Brine Shrimp the other day. It sounds great and keeps in the fridge for about a month. Here is a YouTube of the product.

At the petland discount on 23rd & 8th, they usually have them. My betta go so fat after an entire feeding (i thought he would stop at a certain point).

If you decide to get them from pet land discounts, find out which are the shipment days and pick up then. I used to pick up live food twice a week when they are the freshest.
