Default Daphnia

we are taking down our 125 gallon daphnia tank this weekend and if anyone is interested in cultures let me know.

each culture will have between 500-1000 daphnia in it and ship on Monday the 12th.

we only sell cultures once a year and this is the time.

These daphnia are raised in hard water with a ph of 8.1-8.6

currently the tank they are in is only 28 degrees and they are happy as clams!


Picture is not too good but this video is much better!

Cultures are 20.00 and include shipping

A decent fry food, too. Your apistoes, guppies and betta would appreciate them, ZD. Live are less polluting than frozen. I have had lousy luck with two species (large Russian and something smaller) luckily I can usually get more at the fish club meeting. But if you breed apistos, it is likely worth your time to learn to culture them.

I may be killing them with hot, soft water.
