I have an aquarium with a HOB filter. I tried to introduce a large population of Daphnia to the tank, but by the next day, they had all been either eaten or filtered out. Is there any way to maintain a stable population of Daphnia in a filtered tank?
If it helps, I have a 55 gallon (210 L) tank with a few plants, some corys, a betta, a school of neon tetras, pom-pom crabs, and ghost shrimp.
I’m also a very inexperienced aquarium owner. This is my first tank.
This question is slightly different than:
I am specifically interested in how to sustain a population of Daphnia in a community aquarium, rather than in a separate enclosure. Maybe it is not feasible/possible?
