I've agree
After a few week of getting pond daphnia
I'll test them out with my fancy guppies
If they don't get sick or die in a month
I'll start to feed them to my betta
I've treat every culture the same way.
Even if it from a breeder or pond

Where should I get jars? Jelly? Peanut butter? Or would it be cheaper and faster to go and buy little tupperware containers at the dollar store and poke some holes in?

www.ccwproducts.com is a great place for jars.

Also thrift stores will have mason jars sometimes. I have three stores down the street that sell mason jars.

32oz would need to be changed 100% daily. 64oz would need to be every other day.

Smaller Jars = more work. I see the bottles used in Thailand are about 1 pint? Lots of water changes.....

I am using 1 gal plastic jars from wallyworld.

I just use a big tub full of dirty tank water with live plants, snails, and plenty of sunlight and I feed them a bit of bakers yeast. Then I scoop out my daphnia and place them in fresh clean water with IAL. Then after a few days I feed them.
