Re: raising daphnia


My D. pulex thrive In basement tubs, where the temperature gets as low as 65 
in the winter, and outdoors, where the summer water temperatures get into the 
80's.  They also overwinter outside under several inches of ice and bounce 
back nicely in the spring.

They weren't a local strain originally, but maybe after five years (250 
generations?) they might have adapted.  But then, since most daphnia are 
clones of their mothers, I;m not sure of that.

Good luck!
