Outdoor is easier than indoor as it needs no care other than topping or replacing with nutrient rich WC water. Sunlight drives green water to feed daphnia. Indoor cultures need to be fed with yeast regularly. But outdoor production is inconsistent subject to nature and bloom and bust cycles.

I don't even do water changes. The yeast,spirulina, and snail poop seems to be enough. I do add a little coral in the tub to stabilize pH and calcium.

I added a pinch of protein powder in the yeast, spirulina mix. I only had whey protein around or I would have used soy protein. I make sure to not over use it because protein spoils easily. I think protein is a macro nutrient for these guys. They seem to produce a lot more babies.

I read this on caudata.org.
