Can't say that I'm surprised, but it's great to hear from someone who has experience in this. Thanks for sharing. With this new info, for starters, I think I might fill my culture tank with ~2 gallons of saltwater and then add phytoplankton until the solution becomes a lime green (similar to your Mountain Dew bottle example)? I could then check on it the day after and see how close the solution is to being clear and add phytoplankton accordingly. Sound like a good plan? I'll have the copepods in this Wednesday so I'm trying to prep up the best I can.

BTW, thank you for the link. Do you suggest anything from their store that you really liked? Certain strains for example like Nanno.? Any other tips you could give me on culturing copepods would be great. Thanks!
