Rotifers and/or Copepods

Does anyone near Arvada culture rotifers or pods?
Please PM me if you have a sample that I could use as a starter. For some reason my resting rotifer eggs from FAF are not hatching.
Thanks
Gale

I have a culture of copepods that runs on some automation that may have caused a crash due to some recent malfunctions. It started with both rotifers and copepods, but I can't visually identify the rotifers so there's no guarantee. If you're interested I can grab a sample over the weekend and make sure they're still thriving. I work in Louisville so we might arrange a swap there.

Thanks,

Brad

Your PM box is full.

I'm local to you. I'll suck some copepods out of my refugium if you want some to get ya started. I can't supply you with hundreds, but I can probably get ya 20-50. No charge. Send me a PM for contact info.

KC thanks......let me know what days you have off....I'm working nights again and it's tough to adjust to the schedules of normal people hehe.
Andy, do you still need some mini brittles or have yours made a comeback yet? Let me know because I could head up there and get some pods and drop off some mini brittles if you needed them.
Thanks guys

I sure could use some mini-brittles. I've had my amphipod population make a comeback, but no sign of any brittles. I'd sure appreciate a few.
