Cultivating Live Food
I'm looking for information on cultivating small live food for some new additions to my community tank.
Personal experiences, links, etc.
There's threads on culturing micro worms & daphnia here
Thanks for moving my thread to the appropriate forum.
Okay, great, I like what I'm seeing on those threads. Thanks.
In the past, blackworms were readily available locally. That is no longer the case. In fact, small live food, other than bigger than baby size brine, is quite a distance away, unless I get it shipped. I like blackworms a lot because they live in the tank, if uneaten, and some multiplication happens.
I know that daphnia will live in an aquarium environment, but do the uneaten typically reproduce, even minimally?
I think I need to get Daphnia shipped. What is better/more economical, live or eggs?
