Container for breeding Daphnia and cyclops
I am planning to start my own daphnia and Cyclops culture outside. Need some advise about the container. I considered metal vat like those used for cattle, plastic bins sold in Wall-Mart or a kind of plastic pools sold for kids. I am afraid plastic may start crumbling in a year or two. I will put it in a shady place, allowing some direct sunshine in late afternoon. This way I will avoid overheating by sun. Did anyone try it?
