Hello i feed the Cultur with Spriulina Flakes, omega one marin Flakes, DT Phytoplankton Premium, Nanochloris Salina. The best way is, when are bentic copepods with moina in the same Tank.
The Size from adult are 3 -4 mm and the female are bigger then the male. I Cultur the moina at 35% salinity

Iris,
Does Moina salina produce resting eggs? And can they be co-cultured with Tigger Pods (Tigriopus californicus)?

You know of all the people in the world, Germans are by far the most advanced on harp copepod taxonomy. Figured you would have plenty of sources for them around.

Is it possible to culture mysis successfully on dry food ? Is it cheaper or artemia nauplii is still the best way to go ?

Anderson.

I don't think you can culture DT's. It's actually a blend of three different types of phyto (Nano, Iso and Tetra I believe). The way I understand it, people were doing just that, so they changed their formula to keep people from using theirs as a starter culture to make their own. That last may just be an urban legend, though.

No, it is multiple phytoplankton. One will outcompete the others until you have a single strain. Dt's contains Nannochloropsis oculata, Phaeodactylum tricornutum, and Chlorella. I have a fellow COMAS member that ended up with (most likely) the P. tricornutum

Luis A M just snuck in a post before I got to post mine, or I would have quoted IslandCrow

Cool copepods ?

I'm still a newbie. I don't know if this was already answered, but how can you tell if you currently have copepods in a tank?

You look for them at night with a red lense flashlight Most likely if you have live rock in your tank, then you have copepods.
