| | Daphnia Magna ...
My small P. Gertrudae rainbows are too small to eat my adult Daphnia Magna that I've been culturing. I'm getting some Monia soon, which should be more appropriate.
If you want to try your hand at culturing some Daphnia (and want to pick it up--no mailing), let me know. You'll need some old aquarium water in at least a gallon container of water. No heaters, flltration, or air of any kind needed. Just feed a pinch of yeast or baby food (sweet potatoes) mixed in water.
Fish love these things. They're pretty cool, too.
(I still have Cherry Shrimp, too, at $1/each.)
