It's not that difficult to culture your own rotifers till they get quite dense. Most people who use frozen algae paste usually fail as they scale up their starter cultures too fast. For example if you have 300 ml of rotifer starter culture don't just dump them into 10 liters of water and feed microalgae paste. Rotifer growth is proportional to the algae density you maintain. Meaning if you feed the same density of microalgae paste to a larger volume of water chances are that most will be uneaten and will rot, affecting your water quality and your rotifers won't do well. So instead of seeing your rotifer population bloom you notice your rotifers not making much progress.

If you feed microalgae always make sure by the next day the water is still a little green, if your water becomes clear you should increase the dose as most probably your rotifers are eating more. Try to get new cultures going by the time your culture is about 9-10 days old as older cultures are more prone to crashes. This means getting a new container with new seawater to start over with, not simply just diluting the current culture as it might be contaminated with other organisms like ciliates, which might affect the health of your rotifer culture.

Oh ya for the clownfish larvae, best to use dark paper or cloth to shade the sides of the container. It helps the larvae to see the rotifers better due to better contrast. :peace:

Think you need to feed rotifers till around day 10. Once they are weaned onto prepare foods you can probably feed them once a day. Only thing is that they will grow slower?

People usually introduce newly hatched brine shrimp around day 10 or so. Best to feed the bbs as soon as they hatch as they lose their nutritional value very fast. Normally takes around 24 h for the brine shrimp eggs to hatch. If you want to enrich your brine shrimp either use Selco or microalgae paste. For me I use both. :D
