  1. I tried to generate a infusoria culture a few times now and they have all failed. I have used veggies with water from an established tank those 3 failed. I tried one with yeast and tank water. Tried both recipes with water from the 100gal tub in the back yard. Now I am about to start a hay/dried grass recipe. All from YouTube. The all get cloudy but never seem to make it to that streams of food stage. I am looking at it under a microscope as well. Any experienced suggestions out there? Also, has anyone tried the Paramecium from Carolina? If so how did it work out?
  2. I started an infusoria culture 3 days ago with a piece of boiled lettuce and a glass bowl, and placed it on my window shelf to grow infusoria. Day three and its just moderately cloudy and has a thick film on the surface. Am I on the right track or has it stalled? Thank you!
  3. I've had cories laying eggs for months. Even my neon tetras and dwarf gouramis are breeding. Going to try and collect and hatch eggs and wondering what your go-to infusoria methods are?
  4. I recently made my first infusoria culture. I used tank water, a piece of hornwort and a piece of acorn squash. It just cleared up and all I can say is, WOW! It is so cool to draw that water up in a pipette and see all the micro minis in there moving all around. Anyway, I am attempting to breed bolivian rams and orange laser corys so that is why I made the culture. My question is how long do I have before the culture needs to be "refreshed" as far as taking out the old piece of squash for a new one or even new water?
  5. I'm interested in boosting or adding these microorganisms that otocinclus and other fish like to graze on. I'm curious how you know or ensure you have them. I do have a decent amount of algae growth on my glass and around the tank, and lots of plants. I just don't know if this environment is sustaining a sufficient amount of what aufwuch feeders are looking for. Could I introduce more by collecting rain water and adding to my aquarium?
  6. I'm looking to keep some infusoria for raising tetra fry. Anyone keep infusoria? What do your setups look like and do have any tips or tricks?
  7. @Dean’s Fishroom64 oz over 6 hours. Water is also exchanging with the 250 gallon so the fry tray doesn’t become rancid. testing it with rice fish first. Then on to the T. schoutedeni fry! on a side note: my ricefish mixing has been fruitful. Many of my orange color fry juveniles are starting to get black patches. Hard to get on camera.
