I got my culture from a friend in the Wisconsin Area Killifish Org. I have
had it going for years, and luckily in several containers. Between daphnia
and cyclops invasions, I have managed to keep it going. I have no clue to
what kind it was, if it was even labeled ( they often are) since I didn't
keep track. All I know is it is really great. When they are running good (
98% of the time) they stay suspended and require little more than sun and
snails eating the pellets I put in. This particular tub is a new one, so it
probably had contaminants, and the green couldn't get established before the
red guys took over.

Are these safe to feed to fry as green water? If so, I will keep them going,
other wise they go out on the lawn.

Thanks for the info guys,
