@Punki: I have been meaning to ask you.

When you first started the spawn and wanted to have infusoria, what did you use?

Lots and lots of duckweed put into the breeding tank for infusoria and then i had buckets outside full of other water plants id gathered from my canal in water, and i even put some strawberry leaves in some tank water and waited week and saw it swimming around. i tried lots of tips on making your own infusoria but the strawberry leaves left in the sun seemed to do it the fastest, oddly enough. :)

Is there a thread on how exactly to make it? I dont have any aquatic plants, and its winter!
Or could you maybe step by step explain?

Thanks! Heh, who would have ever thought that strawberry leaves would make a difference with infusoria?!
Luckily I have a sun room that keeps out all the cold and when it's really sunny it is SO hot in there. So I'll see how I will go about doing that in the sun room.

Thanks again!

Infusoria
Just add some old fish tank water and add some left over green
Put it next to the window.
Will it start to look cloudy, green and smell.
You got yourself Infusoria

What do you mean by "some left over green"?
