    Looking for Aquatic Utrics / Daphnia

    Anybody have any type of temperate Aquatic utric (anything that will do good in S.Cali full sun)
    that they can trade off?
    As well as any Daphnia (water fleas) just enough to get a culture going.

    PM me for what I have to offer...

    Not sure if the bog water I use has daphnia, but the plants seem to like the conditions.

    I have a glass jug with some water spinach growing in it, and lots of quite small critters swirling around. I looked with a jewelers loop, they do not like daphnia so far as I can tell, but sort of semi-circular, like a very tiny beetle. Though water beetles are big. There are a few mosquito larvae in there, but I have put in some bt israelensis, that should kill them shortly. I guesstimate they are about 1/4 the size of a pencil tip. There is also a small reed in there, maybe they came with it. Any ideas what these little devils might be, and might they be of interest to you?

    These are in fresh water. All the definitions I found say marine. Is there such a thing as a fresh water barnacle?
