Astaxanthin-The word I can't spell

Hey guys. I know I'm blowing up the forum and I'm sorry!!!! But I was wondering if any of the advanced hobbyists have experience using Astaxanthin powders in your feeds? I use a HUFA and garlic additive 6 days a week. I've done some research and its suggests that it brings out reds, yellows and oranges in fish. Thoughts and feedback appreciated

I'm generally not a fan of dusting the powder on frozen as much of it washes off when the food is in the tank or blown off when the horse eats it. I do however, feed it to brine shrimp and feed live adult bs enriched with it once a week or so. Not sure if its gonna make a difference in color on that level...
