Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expectations vs Reality The ordering and shipment process were expeditious and concise. I received a generally "live" shipment of daphnia... though there were about as many dead organisms as there were live. I am not sure if it was "just their time" or a harvesting issue that caused the casualties. The ones that did survive were used to start a colony, of which none of the magna survived longer than 48 hrs. The smaller species did proliferate after a period of stagnation and have been going strong since. Overall, I did find that the organisms were "sound" and of good constitution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daphnia are great against pond algae Water is crystal clear, unlike the years when we skipped the daphnia. Unfortunately fish love them so much you can't really keep them in a pond with fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So healthy! I bought the culture about two months ago and had to breed them to use for an experiment. They were so healthy I had a tank full in a matter of days. Will definitely order from again in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I recieved a culture and most of the culture turned into cyclops....i feed them algae, yeast, and grain....the whole culture pretty much died as cyclops took over i don't know if they out competed or if they ate the daphnia babies

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daphnia Cultures Living. We were purchasing the cultures for past few years for studying effects of various agents on Daphina heart rate. The cultures were shipped on time and arrived in satisfactory condition. Once there was an issue with the shipment and when we communicated to the customer service, they were courteous and very prompt in rectifying it. We were shipped us a replacement free of charge. We were very happy about the service provided to us.
