Can't help you with the specific species that you are looking for.
However, a good mix of infusoria... including rotifers, can be spontaneously
obtained simply by filling a gallon jar of aquarium water and adding lettuce.
Let the stuff sit for a few weeks to get nice and rotten.  You will soon have
all sorts of infusoria living in this environment.
