Rep: Viking is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Daphnia magna culture

Daphnia magna is a freshwater crustacean that reproduces quickly. An adult female (most are female) has 4 babies every day. They are filter feeders. They eat bacteria, algae, and any small particle sis water. The easiest food is greenwater. Spirulina powder can be used but it is easy to overfeed They are an excellent food for fish, crayfish, and many amphibians. I will include 2 liter of greenwater for $3 extra.



Shipping is $!5 for Priority mail flat rate box. It is a heavy item Shipping is the same for up to 3 bottles.



I accept postal money orders or paypal. I cannot ship outside the country. I am locted in northwestern Illinois.

Hey, just wanted to drop a quick testimonial. I ordered my D. magna culture and greenwater on Friday, and Viking shipped it out on Saturday morning. He provided me with a tracking # without me even asking, so I knew exactly when my shipment arrived on Monday. The culture arrived very healthy, with a variety of size classes, and my salamander larvae have been just gorging themselves on daphnia (they like 'em even more than blackworms). Thanks Viking!

It is hard to give an exact number because are producing babies during the trip. I try to put in at least a hundred. This a very large strain. If I put too many they will suffocate. The number doubles very quickly.


I would suggest that put a few three different container in case one colony crashes. You only need one to start a colony.
