These are not the bags that are sealed somewhere abroad and shipped for several days before arriving with the seller and then more days as they post them to you. This is a starter culture from our my own covered breeding tanks and each culture is bagged and shipped the same day so the Daphnia are as fresh as then can be when they arrive with you and they are are disease free.
You will get Daphnia taken directly from my main culture. There will always be a variable amount of Daphnia present so I cannot give a specific number, but it will be approx 100. There are always adults and young (some smaller than the eye can see)
Daphnia are very easy to maintain. They can be kept in anything from a 500ml bottle upwards, although the larger the better.
The best thing you can do with this culture is put them in an old aquarium or container, out in the garden. Cover it with mesh or flyscreen and feed it a yeast / soya flour mix every 2-3 days (or when the water clears again). Within a week or so you will have more Daphnia than you need !
Please use the options below to buy them using Paypal. Or contact me directly for other options such as local collection.
- FREE UK P&P
Posted Monday to Thursday in a protective cardboard box that fits through a standard Letterbox. (P&P included in price)
- ARRIVE ALIVE GUARANTEE
If any creature has not survived the journey, a photo in it's original sealed bag will be required before any replacement or refund can be offered. DOA requests will not be accepted without this photo
If you are in any doubt when they arrive, take a photo and get in touch in case there is anything I can suggest.
I do my best to ensure they arrive alive, but there are circumstances beyond my control when posting living creatures.
