Has anyone out there had any luck with scud culture? I wrote a month or
so back to the list about it and got no responses. I figure I'll try again
now that school's back in session.
I kept a five gal. tank with scuds for six months with minimal colony
growth. I tried frequent water changes and no water changes. I tried
indoors and out. With duckweed and without. The scuds didn't die, they just
didn't increase their numbers.
I finally gave up and put the entire culture in a heavily planted tank
with no corydoras. LFS Cultures had mentioned that they will happily
colonize a fish tank. After a month, I have seen no scuds in the tank, but
this probably means nothing. Heck, if I saw them, so would the tetras.
Either they're all gone or I'll find them when I tear down the tank.
Anyway, if anyone has luck with these things, I'd love to hear about it.
They would seem to be a great food.
