Thought I'd post some pics of the fish food I've been culturing outside:

Assorted pickle jars and tupperware

A few of the fairy shrimp I started 2 months ago are still alive, almost 2" long

Daphnia moina culture grew insanely fast in 2 old infusoria jars

In the larger fairy shrimp jar I spot a lot of other organisms, think mostly another daphnia sp. (reddish color), and some cyclops

Microworms in pink tupperware (light diffused from led, they're really clear), growing in mashed potatoes + kitten formula + water

I stopped feeding the fairy shrimp and daphnia, they feed on decaying veggie leaves and dead insects that fly in, or the something along the decomposition->bacteria->infusoria chain
