Does anyone know how to eliminate Cyclopoides from a Daphnia culture? The only way I can keep up is to start new cultures every couple days. They can completely destroy a healthy Daphnia population in about two or three days, and the fish don't like them as much. Maybe someone knows of a predator that specializes on Cyclopoids? Here's hoping.
