DIY live food doser

I was thinking of making a peristaltic pump with a live food source in a bottle, airstone, and timer.

Anyone have suggestions for live food (brine, daphnia, gammarus)?

You can't. The live food will turn into mush going through a p-pump. It's not likely the p-pump will catch any critters either. They'll just swim away from the suction. And you can't do brine since you'll be pumping brine into your fresh water, unless you have a salty tank.

This thread is being locked because you're behaving as children. Unbelievable.
