Re: [Killietalk] daphnia baby size
Subject: [Killietalk] daphnia baby size
I'm guessing a lot of people already tought it, anyway I cant find info
What is the size of daphnia babyes? is it possible to use "daphnia water"
hatch annuals eggs? or just have a tank full of daphnia to put in a mop
of aphyo eggs?
Without the benefit of a microscope, I really don't know if what I am doing
makes sense, but.....
I have been
* dipping a BBS net several times into my daphnia culture,
* putting the contents into a small amount of culture water,
* running that water though a doubled standard green fish net, to seive
out the daphnia. These get fed to adult fish.
* taking the water that remains and putting it in with fry.
The hope is that they get baby daphnia and other infusoria from the daphnia
There does seem to be some biomass in the net. No idea if I'm wasting my
time here, except that very tiny gourami fry seem to be surviving and
growing. But maybe they're just grazing on the fauna in the java moss.
I need a microscope.
