No idea where you would source a pure starter culture, however, I know several people who have successfully used the same approach as described here - www.aka.org/wako/Culturing%20Paramecia.html .
Definitely worth trying.

Cheers,

Bill.

Thanks Bill, I will give that a go - it sounds like an easy first fry food to culture & maintain.

Helen,
Again we turn to Colin's excellent articles...

www.irishfishkeepers.com/index.php/artic...ding/105-paramoecium

Send him a PM, he may be inclined to send you a starter - sadly my culture died off during my enforced sojourn in the UK otherwise I could help you myself.

Thanks John - I'll definitely be sending Colin a PM.

The paramecium strain of culture keeps sounding better & better (i.e. cheap & simple) - just perfect for a novice like me :)
