For best results a small outdoor pond, add a little aqualsol. Wait till the water turns green and there you go! I will say though it is the wrong time of year to try it as they will die in cold water. We set ours up around October each year with the BS numbers dropping around June as the temp drops

Why are you looking to grow them?

They are best fed to your fish at the newly hatched stage.

In fact i Have found that they will even eat them while in the egg stage... saves hatching them!

with no degree in this field, Im only going on personal experience I can say that it is an excellent choice of food, and more natural then pellets. Besides it is very entertaining watching your fish chase them down.

Live food is good food and no loss of nutrients due to freezing

we use to collect glass shrimp and feed to the Alto's from the

weed area of water courses ............ need to be bit careful

collecting site is clean

Mozzie wrigglers are good if you can find rockpools after rain

where it gets some salt water around beach areas

BBS is suppose to be best feed in the first 12-24 hrs from memory

after that the nutrient levels drop

C'mon Ben QLD is never cold :p
