Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Price I bought two jars of these about two weeks ago. They arrived in good condition with just a few dead in each jar. I've been able to start a beautiful culture of these very quickly. I received between 60 and 80 and have probably near a thousand at this point. They look great and if you're looking for this particular species of daphnia I highly recommend this product. I couldn't capture the best photos of them so I've attached a video instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good food for baby axolotls We were trying to raise axolotls and they loved the daphnia pulex. They were growing very well while we fed them the pulex variety. We also tried daphnia magna, but that tended to get stuck in their digestive tracts and killed most of them. Even the little baby daphnia resulted in death. So, if you are trying to raise axolotls, I recommend staying with daphia pulex, in spite of the tiny size and need for a LOT of it rather than trying a larger daphnia.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Customer Service After my personal batch died I had purchased these in a quick hurry. To my disappointment at least 1/3 of the little guys had died upon arrival. After contacting customer service they got back to me very quickly through email. They were very understanding and quickly sent out a replacement for me free of charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing customer service I had problem with my first shipment of Daphnia and after contacting the customer service I got a replacement with ample Daphnia pulex. I was truly impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They're alive and reproducing I'm raising these in a ten gallon aquarium to feed fish. After a short lag they're reproducing and seem to be doing great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to maintain, contaminated I ordered two cultures. After following the directions for feeding and maintaining them, within 4-5 days, all of the animals from one culture had died, and all but 5 of the animals from the other culture had died. I kept the detritus for awhile longer, hoping the supposedly present resting eggs might hatch, to no avail. Furthermore, both cultures were obviously contaminated with several copepods.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time and money. I use D. pulex for toxicology exposures and RNA quantification, so I need pure cultures. You will not get that from Carolina Biological. You can also expect to waste lots of time if you try hatching out one of their dry packs of eggs. I ordered 3 dry pack cultures that never hatched anything but triops (wasted 1.5 months of my time). I then ordered a live culture, which turned out to be contaminated with D. magna. When I talked with customer service and a manager they said the large daphnia I was seeing were just older pulex, but I later identified them as magna. When I asked the customer service rep if they guarantee the product shipped is pulex, they said no.
