I was boiling up some lettuce for my wood frog and toad tadpoles, and I was wondering if anyone ever used the left-over water from the boiling as daphnia food. I just got some starter cultures today, and figured I'd ask if someone'd tried it before I risked fouling the water and losing $15 worth of newt food.

I've been wondering the same thing, but I don't use the boiling water, in a day or two the water you put the lettuce in will be nice and green as well.

I'm now trying to use a second tank with lettuce to culture daphnia, as before I only kept them alive till it was feeding time. If this works, this should save me some time and money. (got to admit I added some algae I had been growing for a while)
