Just a good size freshwater lake if it has a board walk or jetty type structure you normally find them in the shadows of it but not always.If its windy I go to the side of the lake the wind is coming from so it is still calm.I could have filled the bucket solid (no water) with daphnia in under an hour easily but there is no need to.

I always have daphnia in my ponds with 5 I normally have 2 producing a harvest able amount but now my fish stocks are increasing I thought I would top them up.

Do you mean where there is a lake? Or just who might have some daphnia as a starter culture? Not sure what wetlands are out your way. But in South East Melbourne there are some wetlands along Scotchmans Creek just near Huntingdale Rd which might be worth a try. Also Jells Park. Oh, what about Blackburn Lake? I haven't been out there but it might be worth a look.

Thanks Michael,

I may try Ringwood Lake, but both Jells Park and Blackburn are close to me as well.

I was happy to just get some from people to start a culture also.

Any suggestions for live foods other than mosquito larvae, white worm and BS for SAA Killifish?

You don't happen to know anyone that has grindal worm do you?

Thanks
