I cannot combine orders as this fills the package, and the next larger package costs about the same to ship.

Russian Red Daphnia variety, from an outdoor bucket culture, shipped in a large 2-liter soda bottle.

The most challenging time with daphnia is transitioning them to a new water source - we've heard all the stories of introducing a starter to a new tank and it crashing. To completely eliminate this problem I ship them in a large 2-liter soda bottle that was fed. Being it only takes a small amount of the culture water to transition the daphnia, you keep a majority of what I send you as an emergency backup. When you recieve the bottle/daphnia, pour the culture into a more usable container, fill a couple small cups with culture water, net out most the daphnia and place into the cups, and then transition to their awaiting tanks. What is left over, which is still most of the culture water I sent, along with a dozen young daphnia, is then placed under strong fluorescent light where it will continue to be a culture. Then, if your primary cultures fail to start, you still have this culture to rely on. Don't feed what I send you for two to three weeks - I gave it a good feeding prior to shipping - enough to feed a small population of daphnia for a couple weeks.

If DOA I will send a replacement at no cost. Please don't file any claim as that usually adds additional steps for us both - just let me know and I will send another without a guilt trip.

FYI: During shipping, distance isn't a risk factor, neither is temperature - what will kill the culture is sunlight. It's critical the box not be left in your mailbox or sitting at your door. Alert your mail carrier you have a perishable package coming and ask for them to deliver it to your door. Watch for the mail carrier as it may still be placed in the mailbox. I will send a tracking number so you know when to expect it.
