Daphnia

Well, i managed to find some frozen hikari daphnia. Several messages back I posted about
my yo-yo loaches that looked very bloated up in the stomach.

Daphnia was only about $4 for the frozen cubes. I noticed when i put one in the water, the daphnia were so small that as the cube melted it looked like I poured a small cup of sand into the water. Usually, I'll put frozen or live food in one of the small worm feeder strainers to keep it from shooting all over the tank. I also move the intake for my aquaclear filter over to reduce the flow.

Anyoneelse have this problem? Maybe there are larger daphnia that I can get?
