Hi I'm new to this site but not new to fish keeping.... I'm Adrian from Mayo.

I've a Fluval Roma 200 tank for the last 7
years and I keep around 30 Tetras, 8 Danios, 1 common Pelco, and 3 Denison Barbs. I'd like to start making my own live food to give my fish a break form the same old fish Flakes.
I bought a JBL Brine Shrimp hatchery and the JBL premix of the salt and eggs.
I've tried 4-5 times to hatch the eggs and I haven't succeeded.... I've read up that that make of eggs can be pretty crap!

So would ye be able to recommend a good brand of eggs I can purchase via the Internet?
Thanks!

If you use the link posted previously you will find Colin's experiences with Daphnia (and other live foods) breeding, it's quite comprehensive.

I just have them in a 10ltr bucket inside because the weather has gotten colder.. I just feed them spirulina and the odd water change and they breed like crazy. U can leave them out side in the spring Aswel if u wanted to.
