My office in Foster City has a concrete pond out front that is
very popular with the ducks. I was out this morning watching
a mother duck with her 5 ducklings, and noticed that the water
is *very* green. I went to take a closer look and realized that the
pond is teeming with daphnia. I've collected daphnia from lakes
before, and I've never seen a population anywhere near this dense.
In fact, I rarely get my daphnia culture at home to such densities,
and I have to feed that with lots of greenwater and fine powdered
daphnia food! And these in the pond are *big* daphnia magna,
too. Happy fish tonight! Anyone in SF Bay Area looking for
a starter culture?
Required aquatic plant content:
I've got two more bags of riccia and one of water sprite here. Prefer
local pickup/dropoff, but I can ship them for $3.20. Anyone?
