I use sweet potatoes on daphnia and adult brine shrimp cultures and feed
both the same way. I throw some into a small dish, mix in some water to get
a liquid slurry and throw that into the culture. No big deal.
I tried spirulina powder for the first time the other day on my adult brine
shrimp culture. I just threw a spoon full of powder into the drum and it
proceeded to float on the surface for about 12+ hours and then disappeared.
I do have a good air bubble current churning the culture. Too soon to tell
if it helps anything. Mixing with sweet potatoes sounds like a good idea
because it is a light flour-like powder.
