Re: [Killietalk] green water indoors (for lee harper) (nick vanikiotis)
Hi I am new to the AKA but after attending the convention in Portland and foolishly buying a lot of fish (oh well it's been fun), I am crash-coursing it in killifood. My old horse troughs are raising some daphnia and mosquito larvae without any encouragement from me. However I would really like to bump up production of the daphnia. Any hints on that without heaters and outdoors? Thanks
