Simply buy a piece of pvc that is the diameter and length desired. We like to use 3" pvc that we cut to around 4" tall. We have 55, 250, and 800 micron screen available, all in 10"X10" squares.

Plankton Feed
SKU: pf1
This plankton feed comes in powder form. Simply add the correct amount of water and feed according to the instructions. We make this ourselves and have been using it to feed all of our rotifers, copepods, daphnia, tubifex worms, and amphipods. This plankton feed is very forgiving, as it is not too oily and contains a nice blend of plant and protein matter. Feeding is subjective to population and volume of water. 1/2 teaspoon of plankton feed and water to 1 gallon of culture water is a good start. Do not cloud the water. If the water stays cloudy, that means that you are feeding too much. The powder stays the freshest in the refrigerator, and after water is added, refrigeration is required.

All plankton feed items now include a mixing bottle and eye dropper for feeding!

Pipette
SKU: pipette1
These 5ml pipettes are an excellent tool for picking up small organisms for feeding or moving. They allow you to target individual organisms and "suck" them up. Each pipette comes with 2ft of tubing, which can be placed in your mouth. Once you have sucked up the organism, you can use your tongue or teeth to close off the opening. Simply release the pressure to drop the organism to its new location. We use these every day for feeding finicky fish, counting fish fry, and sorting plankton.
