Establish and maintain a culture of Daphnia magna or Daphnia pulex with your choice of Daphnia culture kit.

The Daphnia magna Culture Kit is a good choice for use in toxicology and physiology laboratory activities due to D. magna's easily viewed heart and overall large size. The Daphnia pulex Culture Kit is ideal for culturing D. pulex as a source of food for small fish.

Each kit contains a 1-1/2-gal plastic aquarium with lid, food source, living starter culture of Daphnia, and instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very healthy culture! Well over a month ago, my daughter and I purchased a daphnia kit and two separate containers of daphnia for her science fair project. She was studying water toxicity on daphnia and because we have a microscope, it was perfect! Not only did her project work successfully, but we were able to have a "for fun tank" that was just purely for fun under the microscope. It is now almost two months later and we still have daphnia left. We have since ordered other kits from Carolina since we are very happy with the quality that we received. It turned into a fun family event.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Day late and half expired This is our second time ordering and we were very pleased the first go round. However, I am not sure what happened this time. It was bitter cold, and the delivery was a day late. And one entire jar of the Daphnia Magma was deceased. We were able to use the living fleas to conduct our research but I it was disappointing not to have the Wys unity we were counting on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good The product is good. When I got culture of Daphnia 75% were alive. Easy to cultivate in lab.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Daphnia magna worked great, but they're hard to keep alive Like the directions said, it was very difficult to keep this species of daphnia alive for very long. I had trouble keeping them alive for just a few days. The first shipment arrived with about an 80% mortality rate (apparently the plane had been held up for hours on the runway), but Carolina quickly replaced them and I had them here the next week. When I do this lab in the future, I will keep all of the daphnia in the containers which they are shipped in and do the lab within two days of the arrival date.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from idk The instructions to feed and set up the daphnia were very unclear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arrived Alive and Swimming! We received approximately 50 Daphnia in 2 different jars. They arrived in the middle of winter in freezing temperatures but Carolina Biological used a heating pack. We followed the directions that came with culture and we have a thriving community of Daphnia 3 weeks later with babies! They are very low maintenance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fascinating organism for experiments. The visible body of the Daphnia magna allows students to view changes caused by environmental variables. For the ethanol experiment I recommend 3% instead of 1%.
