How to culture infusoria?

Postby pratiksawai47 » Thu Aug 13, 2015 10:31 am

Not able to culture infusoria.tried different types of method but none of them worked.
I also tried the method suggested by karthik da but it didn't work.
Here's a pic of the culture.
Is this INFUSORIA?

I believe the water has to become cloudy and then clear up, with a sweetish smell. That's when infusoria is ready. For me at least, culturing this has been mostly trial and error :( I gave up and moved to egg yolk and baby brine shrimp. Egg yolk mix is the simplest baby food IME.

You always get the eggs and hatch them yourselves. If you want to feed baby fish, you feed them newly hatched baby brine shrimp, for adults,you can grow them into adults and feed :)

I got it from eBay, paid 450 for 30 or 40 GMs packet of 85% hatch rate I think, will last you a long time.
