    Hatching daphnia eggs

    Hi,
    I bought a bag of daphnia eggs online and would like to start a culture. I have not been successful my first attempt, although I followed the instructions that comes with the eggs, and have half of the bag laft for a second attempt. Can you please teach me a good way to hatch these eggs? advice and help is very much appreciated.

    Ive not tried hatching them. I would assume some aged water would be best. Id start some water aerating for at least 24 hours,but more like 3-4 days. maybe a little bit of plant or filter material in it. And then follow the instructions

    Thanks for your answer. The instruction mention to put it under direct sunlight or under 100w light. Is that critical?

    the light may be to warm them. or to get them to come to a spot for collecting. I dont know. I doubt its a big deal either way

    Ok thanks for your advice. I will try to hatch the remaining of the eggs when the weather gets warmer.
