"... What's behind that door? He asked the white rabbit ... "the best thing we can do is open this door. Surely, there is a new world to discover, the best thing that can find is to realize that this door exists and we can open it to see what happens.




I nown the daphnia for many years, I bought a frozen blister of daphnia some years ago, but I do not remember how many years, the truth is that I prefered feed ing my tropical fish with brine shrimp or mosquito larvae, so I just did not like daphnia. But everything changed when I started to interest in supplying my fish live food. We often see aquarium fish a spectacular colorful and with very small effort we can multiply that beauty, just for this beuty of fish we sat for hours in front of our tanks with fish face.

Daphnia is a very effective live food for our fish, it motivate them to feed and can add a supply of vitamins and nutrients that will not get with industrial food.
His breeding and maintenance is also an extreme simplicity. The daphnia tolerate temperatures between 10 º C and 30 º C, alkaline waters always needed to  create their "skeleton".
