    Live Daphnia source...

    Was outta the hobby for a bit (dirty diapers will do that)... starting again, and swung by to check out the new Nautilus Tropical Fish - since Brandon left... I came across live daphnia for sale!!!... about $5 for a cup... for you breeders...pretty cool to have a possible ongoing source...

    Nice staff too, which was refreshing following my being completely ignored at age of aquarium (the young hipster staff) and strictly fish (no surprises there either I guess).

    Not sure if Nautilus still has the scape discount (didn’t ask) but they seem to still be doing a % off fish sales....

    That’s good to know!!
    The live daphnia only lasted 1 week at pet supreme
    Before they came to the conclusion they couldn’t do it profitably;
    Will need to pass by for a cup!

    They used the tank next to the koi (now the dwarf crays)
    But they only did it for a week because they don’t have the “right equipment” so it wasn’t profitable

    They had a bunch in the fridge when I got em... but it makes sense they’d eventually transfer them... good on them for trying something unique though!!!

    Many many years ago I remember some store in New Jersey had the live food in those refrigerated drink dispensers with an aerator or agitator. Not sure how well it worked long term as the brine shrimp had salt and stuff must have clogged the spigot but I always thought it a cool idea if it could be adapted propertly.

    Nautilus should still accept the SCAPE discount, they are supposed to be hosting later this year.
