Rep: Kelliee is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Frozen food for T. Granulosa...

Which varieties are safe to feed? I know they can have bloodworms and brine shrimp, but can they eat mysis shrimp? Beefheart?

I think all frozen fish foods are ok, as long as the newts will eat them. I feed mine bloodworm, brine shrimp, daphnia and cyclops depending on their size.
I would definitely avoid beef heart or any other lean meat. It's very low in calcium and other minerals and although newts will eat it they struggle to digest it properly which can contribute to poor water quality.
The best foods for newts, especially large ones like Taricha are earthworms or pellets. Both of those contain all the nutrition they need and can be fed as a staple diet without anything else being needed.
