I'm not sure there is a single answer to that question, Lee.
From my reading and discussions with folks from different climates, The
optimum temp. may well be what your local Daphnia strain likes best.
I have done poorly with moina from Mach, in HI. IDK if I could not keep
them cool enough, but suspect that was true.
My best results have always seemed to be with locally-collected pulex or
magna (or ???). YMMV. I did terrible with FL-sourced bugs.
