    Whats the easiest live food to culture? I need something for a figure 8 puffer, mollies, and bumblebee gobies, that needs little space, and no filtration

    Mosquito larvae! I just put a bucket outside and within a couple of days I've got some swimming around :)

    Brine shrimp are pretty easy too.

    The easiet depends on how much space you have. But for puffers and mollies a 10g for snails and daphnia if you can culture them together

    If your feeding the larvae to your fish, technically you're not breeding mosquitoes. ;)

    I'd say mealworms are the easiest that ive done. container of oat bran, add mealworms. Wait. Harvest.

    Whiteworms would probably be second. Container of dirt, add worms, add food occasionally. More of a pita to collect though.

    For puffers I'd say snails! Both pond snails and ramshorn snails are super easy :)
