I am looking to buy a cud culture asap. They will live in a lowes tote that about 18 gal its been sitting outside for about 3 months the subtrate is coconut fiber mixed with a little gravel. the color used to be all murky but now it looks like a blackwater setup color. so mebbe its cycled? there's no filter but I have a little bit of Salvinia minima. The bin is in mostly shade. I plan to get 200 scuds and alot of daphnia. will this work? tips? I have never kept aquatic creatures outdoors before.
