My Daphnia Culture
I recently started breeding Daphnia pulex to feed to my baby arowana. This is one of the cultures. From this tank alone I have a sustainable source of food even when harvesting daily.

Well it isn't really self sustaining since at this density the algae never gets a chance to keep up. I feed this culture every day with either green water or yeast.

Probably a bit like an adult lambchop trying to catch micro worms. Fun to watch?

Using 2 buckets for my daphnia cultures. Had to get a new starter culture a few months ago, somehow I always seem to find a way to crash it. Adding green water usually every day when I remember to. Nothing beats feeding live foods to fry.
