Florida Aquatics (Aquaculture Supply) have an excellent book that includes
rotifer culture. They also sell the cysts that can be "hatched" to start
cultures, both freshwater and saltwater. They have a web site
(http://www.aquaculture-online.org/graphic/sponsors/aquaculture/supply.shtml), w
hich I've looked at in the past. I couldn't connect to it just a few
minutes ago, so I'm not sure how much success you'll have. You might also
be able to find reference to them by searching the archives of this list
and the killietalk list.
