Culturing rotifers/harvesting

So for my not to far in the future dwarf seahorses, I need to feed them live foods. BBS don't have a high nutritional value so I'm going to feed them Rotifers. I plan on using a 5 gallon bucket with an air stone. The plan is to order a rotifer starter kit with a two month supply of rotifer food, (those green drops) and since I have to take some out and put some water back in each day, should I just start like a two gallon rotifer culture to make putting water in each day easier? The dwarf seahorse tank is a 5 gallon. So everyday can I just take a jar full of water from my tank and put in the culture. . Thanks guys.

-Dylan

Just born brine shrimp have more nutrional value than adults(especially decapsulate one) so you can feed them to the sea horses.

Yeah but BBS for their in tire life isn't that good. I'm just going to go with Rotifers, and occasionally feed them BBS.
