Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better quality hydra than other vendors We've gotten hydra from a couple of other vendors, and we like Carolina's best. However, hydra are not easy to use in lab. They require lots of water changes and pretty much daily feeding of small daphnia. It all adds up to more work than it's worth. We've switched to doing in-class feeding of anemones instead of hydra. You can feed a jar of hydra in class, but only one or two students get to actually see it catch its prey.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from various stages of development could be more There are not as many examples of stages of development as we expected. Most were fully mature

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed and they seemed more hardy than other cultures! This new product had specimens that were possibly larger than what I have purchased in the past. The demonstration of "budding" was very helpful. These Hydra also seemed to last longer than other orders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They have their niche I utilized hydras for the feeding response of polyp stage cnidarians. Students were able to feed the hydras with young brine shrimp and see the tentacular responses. However, the lab I teach has great dissecting microscopes which were required for viewing. Also hydra are very sensitive to water quality. Next year I will push for aiptasia anemones. They are larger, very tolerant of bad water quality, and can be fed snail which they will then regurgitate the shell showing students the incomplete digestive tract.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I ordered hydras for a science experiment and they all died within 2 days.
