Shipped with USPS Priority Mail from You will receive over 1000+ Daphnia Magna of various sizes. Will have mixed of all size.Daphnia are a sea crustaceon, they move through the water column in a flea like motion.When you receive your starting culture you will have two options.Option A would be to take this culture and feed your various aquatic friends.Option B would be to take this culture and take a shot at culturing this live food yourself.
Option B can be achieved in - easy steps.Step 1- Purchase a starting culture online or locally.
Step 2- Figure out what container your going to house your culture in.Note: You can culture in anything that holds water but I recommend 40+ gallons.
Step 3- Feed the daphnia.Note: I keep it basic and I feed yeast flakes. I mix this with water from my culture til it has a milky consistency. When you feed your culture the water will cloud and as the daphnia filter feed the water it will began to clear up. Then go ahead and feed more.Make sure to start feeding off slow and increase as you gauge how much they are eating.
Step 4- Harvest/population control.Harvest light at first using your first couple harvest to spread and create back up cultures.
Step 5- Back up cultures.Mistakes happen. Crashes happen. One day your culture will be providing you plentiful bounties of live high protein food but some day for some unknown reason your culture may crash and everyone dies. You need a backup culture in order to keep things going or youll have to purchase another starting culture.
