Daphnia Egg

Daphnia (a.k.a. Water Fleas ) is a type of zooplankton. Daphnia are not insect but  a small crustacean. Daphnia are filter feeder, they feed on green water (micro algae), detritus, bacteria and yeast. Daphnia are widely cultured by aquarist and breeders as live food for fries (baby fish) and adult freshwater fish. Many species of daphnia are also being used by Environmental Labs for toxicology test. Our cultured daphnia have been captively kept pure and free from harmful disease for more than 5 years. Thus our strain are more adaptive and resistant to domestic water conditions and  other reasonable parameter compared to wild caught daphnia.
