BTW, yesterday I accessed Mike Reed Enterprises' website
( They sell frozen foods, flake foods and live
foods from their website and also advertise in the major fish mags. I
noted that they sell the same 2 lb lots of redworms which are up for bid
in the NFC E-auction (about 2000 worms in 2 lbs), which can also be used
for composting of food scraps for recycling purposes. However, they
charge FORTY BUCKS ($40) bucks for the same amount of worms, and
shipping charges are extra. All four of the current bids are only half
price of the retail value of the worms, so bidders might want to
consider upping the ante a bit.

Every once in a while people ask for a source of live food cultures. Kieth
has a web page to supply cultures to aquarists. I have used his cultures and
found him to be honest, helpful and prompt. you can reach his site at:

You can get freshwater rotifers from Florida Aqua Farms.
_at_, they sell cysts or live. They
do charge extra for packing and shipping "live' adds about another $15.

Alternately, sells a starter culture and
a mixed freshwater microalgae kit you can culture to feed the rotifers.

Wet Thumb Aquatics sells both live and frozen foods.

"Gregg's Cultures
811 Monteray Way
Newport, TN 37821"
I was well satisfied with this source.

I thought that I would drop a line about a business that I have been dealing
with and am very pleased with them. It is a family owned business and they
orders on the day that they are received. They have a catalog in Adobe PDF
format that you can download. They carry almost everything you need to
or raise anything as a hobbyist, school or commercial business. Their address
is . They have a book "Plankton Culture Manual" which
a huge source of information on culturing micro algae, rotifer, artemia,
copepod and daphnia. I am in no way connected to this company, just a very
customer.Jon Garner

Subj: Microworm Cultures Available
Date: 6/18/99 6:55:43 AM US Central Standard Time
From: (Dwight Moody)

I have microworm cultures available for sale. Microworms are free-living,
non-parasitic roundworms, which are like white worms, only much smaller
(around 1/16 inch). Microworms do not need to be kept cool and thrive in
warmer temperatures found in fish rooms. Microworms are an ideal food for
fry, providing a living food item that can live in the aquaria for days,
providing a food source that is readily available in between feedings and
eliminating the problem of decomposing food. Microworms are particularly
favored by small Corydoras catfish fry.

These microworm cultures come in large 8 oz recycled containers which
contains 2-3 oz of microworms and culture media. These cultures contain
Gerber's Baby Cereal as a culture medium, which has more nutrition and
significantly less odor than other cultures made with yeast and cornmeal.
The cereal not only significantly reduces odor, it also provides superior
nutrition to the worms, which in turn provide high nutrition to the fish, as
the level of food value of live food depends greatly on the quality of the
food they themselves eat. All cultures come with instructions on how to
maintain thriving colonies of microworms sufficient to keep your fry fat and
happy. Free technical assistance is available by email.

Price for single cultures is $5.00 each; 2 cultures, $4.50 each; 3 or more,
$4.00 each. Payment by money order or cashier's check preferred and will
get your order shipped the same week it is received. Personal checks
accepted, but orders will be delayed for 10 business days after receipt to
allow the check to clear. I cannot accept credit cards or debit cards at
this time. Shipping for US addresses by First Class or Priority Mail on
single cultures is $1.65, shipping of 2-3 cultures, $3.20, 4-6 cultures,
$5.40. Larger quanities or non-US addresses: please email for information.

The following are web sites from which you can obtain live food cultures: Live Cultures page of Daleco
Master Breeders Products L.F.S. Cultures (Email: for culture list)

Salt water mysids are routinely cultured by a number of people and used in
toxicity testing. Here is a URL where SW mysids can be obtained------> fama ran an article on how to raise them
few years is much easier to feed your fish the frozen variety hehe

Take a look at our website ( and at We produce marine microalgae that can be used to
grow copepods, rotifers, brine shrimp, and other types of zooplankton. By
using our algae you will get fully enriched zooplankton that don't need
artificial enrichment.
