I have had very good results ordering from Carolina Biological Supply 
Company, at 2700 York Rd, Burlington, NC 27215. Their phone number for 
the U.S. and Canada is 1-800-334-5551, their FAX number for the U.S. and 
Canada is 1-800-222-7112, their international phone number is 910-584-7686. 
Five years ago I purchased their "Daphnia Culture Kit" (and it's still 
going strong) it consisting of - living daphnia, food, one gallon of 
culture water, plastic culture jar, and a fine mesh cloth cover and the kit 
included an instruction sheet. The catalog number is F6-L565C and it costs 
@22.95 in the 1997 catalog. Do your self a favor and if you order from them 
also order their 4 oz container of daphnia food - catalog number F6-L51C, 
it costs only #3.50. (you use 0.2g or 1/16 tsp per gallon) They may not be 
the cheapest source but they are VERY DEPENDABLE! If you use your laser 
printer and make up a business letter head and request their catalog they 
will send one free of charge, otherwise it is close to $40.00 (including 
postage) besides without a business letterhead many items can not be 
ordered like medical leaches.
