Title: Ap. Liniatus
You have also raised a possibility RJ, with the Daphnia or
Moema culture. I wouldn't want to try it with a large number of fry - but a
couple of desired, but unanticipated fry have been dumped into daphnia "tanks"
(anything from a five gallon tank to 40 gallon vat) and left with the
daphnia. The assumption is that they will feed on the greenwater and whatever
that the daphnia are feeding upon until they are big enough to feed on the baby
Daphnia/Moema. It has worked fairly well, if the cultures weren't too
On the other hand, last winter, production in a
pretty effective 40 gallon breeder tank on the floor by the outside door of
the fishroom (it would have been interesting in case of an emergency) suddenly
dropped. It turned out that an odd rainbow egg absent mindedly flipped in there
to join the organic soup, had avoided the snails and grown into a 2" Mel.

Cyclop-ease on hand feeding it to my GAR almost exclusively.
It tends to float. I am working on Daphnia-Moema to further
free myself from the dreaded artemia.
Although I realize that this is useless for your immediate problem at
least you can prepare for next time.
now improvise. This is how great discoveries have been made! Let us know what
you try and what happens.
