Re: [Killietalk] Daphnia food
I feed freeze-dried baker's yeast, suspended in water, with good
results. Keep excess in the refrigerator.
You probably just fed too much yeast — a light haze is all you need.
Too much and the Daphnia all die.
Spirulina powder (from Jehmco, 800-521-6258) blended in water and added
to just a hint of a green tinge, also works fine, as well as does
paprika powder. I currently feed a mixture of yeast and spirulina, with
an occasional sprinkling of paprika powder on the surface.
Subdivide your going culture and experiment.
