    Hello guys! Ok... I have a question. Are these Daphnia temperate organism or I can have them here in the tropics (Puerto Rico). I was about to buy some culture when I saw this topic.

    So I want to know if I can find Daphnia in lakes and bogs here in the tropics. Or if they are not native here, If I buy them, will they survive a tropical environment?

    AlphaWolf, I see you ahve a lot of knowledge about this, if you can help me, once again, I will apreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Jorge Joel...

    yep, you should find them somewhere there. There are daphnia from alaska to the sea (not nearly as many species but there are some saltwater daphnia... there are also saltwater ostracods and copepods. I don't know about ostracods but I do know there are more saltwater species of copepod than freshwater species and they're the most numerous kind of animal)
    If you do order cultures, you should be able to grow them there too.... but don't overheat them... maybe put them in the shade?
