Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good enough Most of it stays alive, but could be better - several of the plants died within the first few weeks of use. Order more than you need.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service My daughter needed live Daphnia magna for her science fair project. While she knew what she needed to do to conduct the experiment, we were at a loss as to the Daphnia themselves. I called Carolina Biological Supply numerous times and each time received the assistance I needed. Steve in live organisms was particularly helpful, as we did not know exactly which type of Daphnia to use, or if we needed to purchase Daphnia food or other accessories. I left him several detailed messages, and each time he called me back promptly. One time was later in the day, and he provided me with alternate contact information in case we did not have the answers we needed by the end of business hours that day. The Daphnia arrived on time and in great condition (I live in northern VA, and it gets cold here in early Dec, but we had no issues with temperature affecting the organisms). They actually lasted MUCH longer than expected. (So much so that when her experiment was over, my daughter insisted on keeping the containers with live Daphnia until no more were left. We did not intentionally set up a culture, but it is a month later and we still have a few survivors which is bad for counter space, but good for curious young minds!) I would 100% recommend Carolina Biological Supply, and will definitely use them for any future needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Experiments! I purchased this about a month ago for a science fair experiment. When they arrived, most of them were swimming around and I could start the experiment within a day. The culture had both big and small Daphnias. They were shipped with care and they also gave with the Daphnia culture, 3 plastic watering pipettes. Its a great company and their live products are great too!
