Hey guys!

Since I've recently started adding some aquatic carnivorous plants to my collection, I've also decided to begin a sustainable live food culture for indoor feeding until Spring. Does anyone here maintain a culture of these? I have a small colony living in my water trays and I'm going to try and begin a separate culture specifically for aquatic indoor feedings.

I don't have a culture myself (wouldn't mind having one to use to feed some of my Utrics), but they appear to be very easy to culture. There are a number of youtube's showing how to do it. Since you have some living in your trays, you should be able to use them to start a dedicated culture.

Once you get one going, hit me up. I'd like to give it a try myself...

So.. the ostracod cultures are doing well. I am not so sure that they are necessarily feeding the aquatic utrics, but, they do seem to be doing a fine job of algae control! The observation continues..
