Everyone from this group was so helpful with suggestions and advice
on culturing paramecium and on other ways to feed my C Chuna fry, I
thought you might like an update on the spawning of 6 September.
The infusoria culture failed again, so no food from that source.
However I did float the idea of using filtered green water from
that old tub in the garden and got some useful suggestions. Well....
Without a suitable culture, it was drastic measures or lose them all.
So I filtered a pint of rather smelly water from that old garden tub
through some fine mesh, to remove any obvious nasties. The result
was water absolutely teeming with "things"!! I poured this in
real slow, then a few hours later did a 20% water change. I have
been doing this for 6 days now - and the fry - now 10 days old, are
taking finely ground dry food, and will undoubtedly be ready for live
brine shrimp in a day or two.
So thanks everyone - I didn't get to the bottom of culturing
infusoria, but I DO have 100 fry, 3-4mm long, healthy, growing
fast, and can be seen actively foraging for those nasties from my
garden tub. Thanks all.
