In our experience here, the moina have always out-competed all the other daphnia
species they are housed with.
Some larger daphnia do manage to hang on for a while, especially if there is a lot
of food, but the end result has always been the same, Moina only.

Interesting, wonder how such a mixed culture will do?
Usually keep moina and magna as separate cultures.
