    I have some "Crazy Calms" also. LOL
    I'll start them today when I get home from work. I just received my powdered spirulina yesterday to feed them.

    I did not ask that question.


    I'm thinking of getting Daphina to feed the Betta I have, and Clawed Frogs that I think I'm going to get again. Plus growing a Utric or 2 in water like I did before to feed small Daphina too and see if I get better growth.

    Daphnia just eat green algae right? Could they live off of those Marimo Balls? Some seller sent me a handfull of the marimo balls with some java moss and I don't know what else I might do with them.

    These guys grow fast. Not a whole lot bigger, but they have developed their tails.
    I have around 25-30 of them.



    Sorry for the crappy pics. These things are tiny, constantly moving, and I'm hand holding the camera. Too lazy to get the tripod and try to set up where I have the tank.

    I'm not sure the Daphnia would eat off a Marimo Ball or not.
    Just read a website that said Triops would eat Daphnia.

    @swords: no, daphnia eat a specific type of green algae: unicellular green algae, aka green water. in fact, green water is needed to maintain a steady culture of daphnia.

    Thanks, IIRC from my planted aquarium days green water is pretty easy to make - at least when you're not trying to it is! LOL
