    Sounds good. Then I'll just assume it has enough food and carry on. I've blocked out an hour this afternoon to repot some plants and add more soil to the jar the utric is in. Thanks again guys.

    Pond or bog water should provide some Daphnia.

    Hi Jim,
    the plug of gibba you sent me hasn't been doing much so I brought in a bowl of sunken peat and poured it into a big clear shoebox and am going to put it in there once it all settles to the bottom.It has some moss intertwined in with it.Should I try to separate it out?

    Hijack away Kwende. I am as interested in the culture of this "critter" as you are and am glad to keep the conversation going to get the max info on everybody's varying cultural practices. Thanks for the bump!

    Mark,

    I would try separating some of it out and grow it in another vessel. This way, if one colony dies out, you may have another one viable.
