I got some live food today. Initially I thought it is daphnia but then I realised it is polyphems
Nice, I'm not sure I've ever seen any of these.Polyphemus pediculus
That's weird, but cool!
On the subject - does anyone have any tips on sorting live food? I was catching daphnia today but none of my fish can fit the largest ones in their mouths.
I used to get a really big ones some-times, they would get caught in the surface film, but I can't remember their scientific name.I was catching daphnia today but none of my fish can fit the largest ones in their mouths.
I actually use a cheap nylon tea strainer, the type you get from a "pound shop".livefood sieves in a set of different mesh sizes.You can probably find something suitable in the kitchen section of a pound shop or other cheap place.
