Daphnia Moina

Wondering if anyone has had any success with Daphnia Moina and where to find good starter cultures?

Look online for suppliers, or even a local lake. My tanks had gotten those lil' daphnia critters when I added plants from a store! My fry fed on them without me realizing they were in there and feeding my fry...

I had the same thing happen as Sena. Got some wild probably from plants. Kept Daddy fed (and fat) till i got him out, and provided snacks for the fry.

My lil' fry has a black belly from nomming on daphnia What was suggested, is get a ton of live plants from stores (or even a fresh water lake) in a bucket, they'll eat anything edible, keep the water clean of super high ammonia aaand...yeah. They breed themselves
