Hi, Dave:

I hope that you bought some of the giants & will be willing &able to
sell me a starter culture!!!

If you did not buy it, do you remember who was selling them? Who might
know? I would LOVE to have them!

The largest Daphnia that I know of, is D. magna. It grows to about 5 mm
(0.5 cm). This giant would be twice as large (1/3 of an inch!) - what a
treat for a Blue Gularis!
