and other beasts as the food of water flea. Such material is hard to get in

over 70% of its full dissolving degree. This is for large scale feeding.

This post is a bit simple but it tells you the basic conditions that
daphnia. If the quantity you need is not large. I suggest you should buy
frozen daphnia then put them in vacuum bag and store them in refrigerator.
