    Would one need to cycle a tank before adding daphnia? Would adding a bacteria solution like fritzzyme 7 work? Thanks.

    Hi all! I recently started another foray into the live-culturing world of daphnia. I tried it when I first started the hobby, and couldn't stop crashing both cultures I was working on. What a mess! I think I was overfeeding, but that's all another matter. Anyway, my question is this: could I...

    I first joined plantedtank in order to post about seed shrimp in my 45p with no luck getting a response. Here we go again! A year after my first experience with a seed shrimp explosion in my 45p, the only solution I found was getting a dwarf gourami to nip the problem in the butt, and it...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello all, I've been reading through the forums for about a year and haven't found a definitive answer for this. I have a dirted 5g shrimp tank with a Planaria problem and I'm thinking about dosing with Fenbendazole to help keep my shrimp and MTS alive (I've already lost a yellow rabbit snail)...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I am thinking of getting some daphnia, both for live food but also because little things like that are interesting to look at in aquaria (of course they wouldn't survive in a tank with fish!). I've read that yeast is a good easy source of food for them, rather than trying to keep up with their...

    Will adding daphnia improve water quality? When they reproduce, the added mass of the colony has to come from somewhere- I'm wondering if they filter your water to some degree? I'm not thinking of adding greenwater or any food to the tank though- it's my shrimp tank. But I thought I might grow...

    I have a good collection of live foods and I can share cultures to get you started. What I don't have at the moment is a Grindle Worm culture. If you have or know who has Grindle Worms, let me know. If you want any of the following, let me know I am happy to share a starter culture...
  8. Fish
    Hi! I have started a new planted tank that I am going to try and keep plankton (daphnia, copepods, hydra, etc...) in, in a long-term effort to provide live food for some fish. I have already put a lot of thought and effort into keeping these critters alive, by providing ample separated hiding...

    I'm looking for a bunch of scuds, daphnia, worms, etc. to start a live fish food farm with. I had a bunch living in one of my tanks, but my guppies wiped out the population after a few months. Let me know what you have!
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Got into a debate over live foods, so I snapped some quick pictures of my setup and decided to make this post for people having trouble with raising daphnia indoors. Here are some simple steps to follow to be successful: 1. Pick the right daphnia strain for you. Fish size, feeding frequency...
  11. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    What are some fish that wont eat shrimp? (I am also putting in seed shrimp and some daphnia, and would prefer them to not get eaten as well... or atleast not eaten to the point no longer in the tank). I am open to micro/nano fish as it is a 10g planted tank (shrimp on the way!). Also... would...

    I am planning to raise my own fish food, mainly daphnia and Cyclops in a large enough water container. Does anyone tried it? What kind of container would be the best? I am going to put it outside. Translucent walls of some big bins would be beneficial for water bloom to enhance small...

    So I will be getting a packet of seeds that will include probably 5-10 each of Spinytail fairy shrimp, Beavertail fairy shrimp, Clam shrimp, daphnia, seed shrimp and Triops sp. Has anyone had experience with raising this kind of mix? I seem to be able to find plenty of information on individual...

    I got a paired of puffer fish and bumblebee goby & I've try feeding them everything possible but they are very picky eater. The only thing I've had success with, is brine shrimp; but they are too much work, expensive & died easily. My question is... what other alternative live culture foods...

    So I have this 10g planted tank (see image below) ...and i have been seeing these small little tiny creatures everywhere for a while now. I think they are Daphnia, because I'm not sure what else it could be. They are small round white bugs -- too small to pick up on my phone camera (although you...
  19. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Which daphnia are best suited for celestial pearl danios and green neon tetras? Magna, pulex, or moina? I'm thinking the magna are probably too big, but are the moina too small? Has anyone ever used these guys? http://livedaphnia.com/
  20. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello. This is my first post here on TPT.net forums! I have been checking out copepods and think they would be great in my tank. However I haven't been able to find any place where I can purchase them! I have found many saltwater ones though, but that's not what I need. Any suggestions? Thanks...
