Infusoria cultures

Infusoria: Zooplankton
is not a single type of food; it comprised of various types of organisms that are approximately 0.02 millimeters--depending on the species.

Infusoria: Phytoplankton (Green Water) can be broken down into two categories -- Zooplankton (include microscopic living animals) and phytoplankton (include microscopic plant material).

To create your own infusoria, place some hay, spinach or lettuce in a bottle of water, and put it in a sunny place and you have no control over what types of organisms are in the water that you are sourcing from.

  Do Planted Tanks Require CO2?

Beautiful aquatic plants growth depends on lighting. With low to moderate lighting, adding CO2 is not necessary.

Plants that are suitable for use in these "partial-water" setups, such as Paludariums and Terrariums prefer to have their roots under water and their leaves above the water and it is recommend that you consult with books or plant experts if you intend  to create a beautifully aquascaped aquarium.

Many types of plants like "Bunched Plant" category will thrive and grow to the surface of the shallow water, then keep growing right up out of the water and onto dry land and it is a fascinating way to bring a small piece of "jungle" right into your home.

It is best to first boil the hay, spinach or lettuce (leave to cool-down to room temperature) and then add one of the paramecium species that is used as fish food. Its good to aerate it so that decay and smell of the culture can be minimized.

It will produce a large amount of food that is of extremely small size and will feed even the smallest of fry which is its biggest benefits. For cultures intended to be kept beyond a few days, siphoning the bottom of the culture out every few days will help prolong the life of the culture.

Several paramecium species may be used, and the culture of different species has a good bit of variation. If you purchase or obtain a culture of paramecium--many can be kept by just covering the jar that contains your mixture of hay, spinach or lettuce and it in a sunny place.


Using yeast fermentation bottle. You only need a couple of bottles to maintain good CO2 levels in a 92-gallon aquarium--great for growing fresh water aquarium plants and won't hurt your fishes.

Favorite aquatic plants are the swords of the genus Echinodorus osiris, they can tolerate temperatures as low as 60 F or 75 F degrees.


Fill a 1-quart jar with water and your food source (hay, spinach or lettuce), add the paramecium to the culture and you should be able to use it after four days. 

Pour it through a piece of cloth to remove the wheat, hay, lettuce, or spinach. The water that has passed through the cloth should not be toxic to fishes--the filtered organisms can be added to your aquarium fish tank.

Infusoria cultures do not last as long as vinegar eel cultures, so start a new culture every few weeks to ensure that you donít run out of fish food.

To avoid paramecium and other microscopic critters that are toxic or dangerous to fry, make sure you fully understand how to keep and feed your species before you begin feeding it to your fish.

Aquatic & Aquarium Tips

Donít Destroy Helpful Bacteria. Because the nitrosomonas and nitrobacter are the domineering bacteria populations in the biological filter.

Water Hardness, black or red algae affect your aquarium. Some sword plants growing from a riverbed that was pure calcium carbonate--yet, the swords were flourishing.
CO2 is only a problem for fishes if you add too much to the water. A good level for plants is about 20 to 30 ppm. CO2 doesn't stress fishes until the level gets to be about 50 ppm.

How to avoid having algae in your aquarium? Starve your plants and algae will grow. But can one feed the plants and avoid algae growth?

Healthy Plants Require Balanced Growing conditions. An unbalanced planted aquarium need a high level of lighting without adding carbon dioxide.


Aquatic & Aquarium Tips

How can I control the algae? My pond water becomes murky and over loaded with algae. My 10 ft X 5 ft pond contains six Koi fishes about 2 ft in length uses pH of about 7.0 rain water.

Can I raise Koi in an indoor 125 gallon tank and what are the possibilities for building a small indoor ponds in my apartment to raise Koi or goldfish?

Freshwater Java fern (Microsorum pteropus) can suffer from Java fern melt if blue-green algae is present due to nutrient deficiencies.

Pruning and Planting. fern, stem or rosette are not trimmed the same way, liverwort Riccia fluitans are trimmed by pulling or snipping a portion of the mass.
