Hi,


I had a strong culture going for about 2 months inside a 10gal tank with a sponge filter.

After those 2 months the daphnia began dying and not reproducing.
I moved about 30 into a 5 gal and they have reproduced quite nicely.

My question is that since yeast fouls the water too quickly, would green water collected from a pond be a better alternative and would I need to do as frequent water changes if I fed only green water.

I just threw them in my pond, and after a couple of weeks, the pond is full of life.
Daphnias, blood worms and mosquito babies seem to be the bulk of what's in my pond now.
Could I feed this as their primary diet since its diverse and just supplement with pellets?
