Hello I am trying to culture green water for daphnia and I have not had much success. I recently tried added organic fertilizer but I believe I added too much. The water was dark yellow and smelly. I did this in a 2.5 gallon fish bowl with a heater and air pump next to a sunny window with a cfl lamp shining on it. If anyone has had any luck with growing green water please help me out!
In my next attempt I am wondering if jars will work better than a bowl that way I have more cultures??
Also to use or not to use a heater and air pump??
And what to use for nutrients(miracle grow, less organic fertilizer, lettuce etc.)??
Lastly would DIY co2
