Re: Off Topic - Daphnia Culture Tips?
I'm not sure how they got in your wheel barrow, but I do keep them
inside, myself. I keep them in a 15 gal tank with an open airline on
low. I feed them yeast by putting a bit in a jar of water from the
tank and shaking it to dissolve the yeast. Then I pour it into the
Daphnia tank. I add enough to make the tank pretty cloudy, and the
Daphnia usually have it crystal clear in a couple of days. Other stuff
you can feed them: egg yoke emulsion, baby food, fish food - pretty
much anything. Just try to mush it up enough that it will keep
A snail in the tank wouldn't hurt either. It keeps the algae down
(the stuff on the glass that the Daphnia don't eat), and help to keep
the sunken food to a minimum.
