Rotifers culturing question!

Recommended Posts

for 1 month, yes they will die.

but for 1 week is fine, to be safe -harvest the culture the day before u go,(this will be fine for 4days on its own)+ 3days more of starvation. i usually don't worry abt going away for 5 or 6 days.

Keep a portion in a bottle in the fridge. And if u really want, keep another bottle on the shelf next to the running culture. So u get 3 chances to find at least 1 rotifer alive.

The thing is- the more you spread live cultures around between reefers, the easier it is to get starter cultures.

If u keep a bottle in the fridge(abt 6-8c)- these are the survival rates:

1-4 days 95%

4/7 days 85%

10 days 50%

14 days 30%

should work....altho it can get a bit messy. The plastic ones some people use for BBS can work but you might loose some of the smaller rotifers - used it once when I couldn't find my 53 micron mesh...

get the plastic coffee filter from cold storage, brown rim, white filter, good enough, It will help of u use a sewing machine to stitch another time through, I was using this. go my rotifers culture from LFS ......feed them with yeast, and a little plankton. You can usually find the filters at the baking,section in the supermarket/
