Hi, Leonard,

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.

Good luck!
