I started with a similar mixture, probably more nutritious than the meals of
most humans. But it took time to make and it left a residue. Now I mix 2
tsp of dry yeast with a cup of soy flour. At feeding time I mix a tsp or so
in 12 oz of water and add half of it to each of the two tubs. If the tubs
don't clear by the next day I cut back.
I didn't invent that recipe.
You apparently culture much more intensively than I do and you doubtless get
a hight yield. The flip side of that is higher maintenence, but if you need
that much daphnia you have not much choice.
