Re: Green water and green water

    There is more than one kind of green water. Some kinds must be inedible 
or aggressive growers and can harm a Daphnia culture. I have had a soft hair 
algae that the Daphnia do not eat that seems to overpower the culture. 
African cichlids love it though. I've also had a "green water" starter that 
formed some sheets of dry looking light green on the surface once well under 
way. This algae would wipe out, rather than feed, a Daphnia culture. Once it 
contaminates a culture, bleaching and starting over seems the best next step.
