Live Daphnia Fish Food

Live fish foods, such as Daphnia and other infusoria, are highly regarded as valuable sources of nutrition for fish. For years, fish enthusiasts have recognized the benefits of feeding their fish these small crustaceans, which naturally inhabit ponds and consume algae, thereby reducing its presence in water gardens. The jerking motion of Daphnia is particularly enticing to fish, leading them to consume these organisms eagerly. Aquarium keepers often witness this interaction through the glass, as fish devour the Daphnia. When you introduce Daphnia and other live infusoria into your water garden or aquarium, your fish will delight in this special treat. Even if you have never fed Daphnia to your fish before, you will undoubtedly be captivated by their reaction. Not only are Daphnia a favorite in our fish hatchery, but they are also widely used in biology laboratories for experiments and observations in universities and schools.

Spring Shipping Schedule: Preorder Season Expected Ship Dates

This is the expected shipping weeks for preorder season that is about December through April. Plants cannot be shipped until they are strong enough for transit and the weather from Ohio to you is warm enough so that the lifeforms can survive overnight stops. If the spring weather is sunny and warm in northern Ohio, then some plants may ship earlier. If the spring weather has a lot of storms, cloudy weather and is cool, then some plants need a tad more time to get strong enough for transit.
