Our next club meeting we will be doing Live Food Workshops where members can create their own live food cultures to bring home! 

During the meeting we will learn how to create various cultures, keep them going, and how to harvest them!  These will be hands-on breakout sessions of ~5 people per culture at a time.  If we have enough variation of cultures we will do rotating stations so people have an opportunity to create different ones.

So far we have...
White Worms
Vinegar Eels

Are there any members out there that maintain other live food cultures that would be interested in sharing their cultures and teach others how to? All we ask is for you to bring enough supplies (including containers) for at least 10-15 people to create their own cultures (OVAS will reimburse any expenses with prior approval and receipts).  Please post here if you can bring some cultures, and PM me if you have any special needs to run a workshop.

I have some daphnia, but am at a loss as to how to describe culturing it. I caught it in the spring with fairy shrimp and I just left it in the 5 gallon bucket outside all summer. Could bring some in though.

@Jody: Perfect.  Bring all the supplies for Microworms so people can create some cultures.

@Missavgp: Would you be able to explain/demonstrate how to maintain them (feed them, water parameters, how to get them to multiply, how to get them out and feed them to fish, etc.)?
