Thanks for the information. I guess that I am just too small a farmer. How
do you keep the pool going after the initial charge of stuff?

I went out collecting this mourning. Stopped by a small pond (about 10 ft
by 20 ft). I got about a dozen fish which I have identified as gambusia.
There were about six large females 4 to 5 inches long. Some males 1 to 1.5
inches. Tiny fry. Also, a couple of water beetles, a stick that walks
along the bottom and some black specks that jump through the water in the
lower part of the bucket. I will put the fish in an aquarium and the rest
in my daphnia bucket. Maybe the specks are what I am looking for.

Thanks for the help;
