Just thought I would include pictures of the cultures I have going on. Now that I am starting to understand this reef business a bit more, I have started culturing my own copepods (saving $20 every week), my own phytoplankton ($16 every week), and daphnia (don't know anywhere to buy these).

They take up some real estate, but the savings are pretty amazing. I plan on building a couple more culture specimens as well. Brine shrimp, marine rotifers, and possibly my side shrimp.

There are a couple of additional things that I am working on, but this is a very enjoyable little side project, and my meddlesome nature is put at ease by having these simple things to mess with.

Marine phytoplankton


Daphnia


Copepods
