For anyone who hasn't noticed I love daphnia. Currently I can't find anyone in the club who has an active culture. Recently my own cultures have basically dwindled down to extinction due to lack of attention, but for the second time in my daphnia culturing experience I have raised the Phoenix from the ashes and restarted my daphnia culture from nothing but disaster(for those of you who don't know this is a natural preservation technic of daphnia; if water conditions get to bad or the food supply gets to low instead of creating offspring they lay eggs which can survive dormant for long spans of time and under horrible conditions even freezing temps only to be triggered to hatch when conditions are optimal again.) I have have decided to take it upon myself to solve the great daphnia shortage. Hopefully within a week or so maybe less I will have multiple culture back up to roaring production at which time I intend to reinfect our club with these creatures. Anyone interested in keeping this awesome live food post your interest. I will announce when I have cultures ready to give away and deal them out on a first come first serve basis(except for a select few who have been nice enough to provide me with cultures in the past you get a golden ticket to the front of the line). The only thing I will ask in return for a culture is that you take the ownership of one seriously. Anyone who has not kept a culture in the past please do some research before asking for one. If you get a culture and keep it successfully pass it on to others. I could ramble on for a while but I'll try not to. #1 rule: if you recieve a culture from someone and at some point in the future they ask for one you must make an effort to give one back. Daphnia are finicky creature that only like to survive in optimum conditions and are therefor easy to kill. On the other hand they reproduce on a massive scale and their idea of optimum conditions really just means lots of food and water that isn't just utterly toxic so... Not that hard to keep alive. But the only way to keep them in the club year round and available to everyone is for people to share. I will start.
