Daphnia and Green Water (Connecticut)


Recommended Posts

That bucket?

Rinse Water from when I made rice for dinner and 1 tsp of yeast mixed in a bullet style blender.

Fill a bucket with 4 gallons of water from my fish pond (you could use aged tap water, but its going to take longer if you don't have an inoculant)

Pour the mixture in and put the bucket in a mostly sunny spot.

In a day or two it might start to stink a little, but after about 5 days it starts to deepen to an thick emerald green. Then I feed about 1 or 2 mason jars worth of green water to my daphnia cultures...When I do water changes, I really just reduce the water to about 2 gallons, and the water level increases as I continue to feed them green water.
