    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...

Like Brine shrimp, easy to raise, but doesn't have a good enough...

    My question is this: Can my tank raise its' own food? Is there a species of hardy freshwater bugs that can maintain a population in an aquarium, provide food for the fish, not be decimated, yet not take it over or become pests?

    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/
