Greenwater and Daphnia
Got some friends with a pond in Honolulu. It is very green. They placed
a screen cage into the pond and added some daphnia to the cage. The system
works well. The only problem is finding a screen that doesn't get clogged
to quickly but will retain the daphnia napuli. I figure it could easily
get worked into a slow filter system that constantly pumps new green water
into the cage. It should work with D. magna. hmmmm. Might be a really
good idea for me. I suppose I could suspend it with some float and use
the parts of a tetra sponge filter to provide a slow constant airlift for
the greenwater and a means to exclude the goldfish.
