If you add a pinch of brewers yeast to a tank it will just sink to the
bottom and rot. Best thing to doid grind it up in morter and pestle,
add water, let it sit for a while then add this suspension (not solution - 
it doesn't disolve) to the tank.

>Don't let moskitos at your daphnia as they eat em.  and quickly.

Mosquitos are filter feeders and do/can NOT eat daphnia.
