I have only seen it on ebay. They want $25 shipping from Ohio. If you find it cheaper please let me know too. Good luck

Hi! Just joined after having bought a new baby axolotl. He/she is a leucistic my daughter named "Nebula". Anyways, completely new to this but a century ago when I was in University we got our supplies from Ward Scientific and they have daphnia cultures. I don't know if they are the right "kind" but shipping is not astronomic and prices are cheap especially if you are ok with them in a bag instead of a jar.

I have had great luck buying from aquabid.com under the live food section. There are almost always a couple offerings for daphnia along with a bunch of other small live food cultures.

I would highly recommend ordering daphnia from Rhonda. I've ordered the past two years. She sends a generous amount of daphnia and the green water starter is a huge plus. The trick is to have a large enough container to allow the daphnia to reproduce enough to meet your demand. I was able to raise way more than I needed in my parents garden pond.
