Rep: EleanorGrace is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Are these Daphnia too big?!

Hello,

I'm raising some Axolotl larvae at the moment, They are currently three days old.

However, they do not seem to be eating. I know it is not uncommon for them to not eat for 72 hours so I am not too concerned as of current.

I had some slight problems last week with my D. manga culture where the culture crashed, it did recover however it now means I have limited smaller daphs.

Could someone take a look at these photos and say whether these Daphnia are too large? as if so I will have to get some emergency Brine shrimp eggs.

Thank you!

The adult daphnia probably are but the new babies are not. Must sure you enough babies until the larvae grow. I have done this several times.
