Note: I do not sell cultures. However you do get a free culture of microworms with
your betta order, and have the option for an additional $5 to also add a vinegar eel culture.

Microworm cultures: 

Microworms are the food of choice for fry between 3 and 30 days old.  With a minimum of care, your culture will last you like, forever. A must have for all new breeders out there. My advice to you is: donít even think of spawning without a culture going. Culture are not available at your fish store so to get one you have to either know a local breeder who could give you a starter culture, or you can try to surf the net and see if someone out there sells them.  If you are planning on buying bettas from me, you need not concern yourself with going on a difficult microworm crusade, because they automatically are included with your betta order, free of charge. Cause I know that without them, you'd be SOL. So I get you all taken care of :). , click here 

Vinegar eel cultures:

Simple to set up, easy to maintain, the Vinegar eels is a great complement to the microworm diet. Vinegar eels are slightly smaller than microworms and the cultures are almost crash proof. Further more vinegar eels swim around in the tank instead of lying at the bottom, so they provide a nice stimulus to the fry who chase after them. And guess what? The snails can't eat them unless they have died and sank to the bottom :)) ! I think this is a nice complement to a microworm culture and this way if your microworms are not climbing, you can always fall back onto your vinegar eels and not lose your newly hatched fry. I do not recommend Vinegar Eel culture as only food as experiments have proved that problems did develop from too much vinegar eel in the diet. Also they can be a bit hard to harvest, so keep them as a back - up and/or to offer some food variety. See our very interesting E-Magazine article on how to harvest them best.

Daphnia cultures:

For years now Daphnias have been used to keep lakes and ponds clean. That is because they feed on junk such as: algae particles, leftover food and best of all BACTERIA! (love them Daphnias!!) So now you can have your own little pest control/ cleaning crew in your fry tank. Their eggs hatch in only two days and so they multiply fast. They are easy to keep and best of all  Daphnia will never harm fry and fry will initially leave them alone until fry are old enough and large enough to eat all the daphnia. Adult daphnia in your fry tank will  reproduce and baby daphnia is small enough to be chased and eaten by small fry. So you also have your own automatic feeders in our fry tank. The only drawback is that daphnia cultures can be unstable, meaning they do great one week and all die the next. So once again they cannot replace the good old reliable microworm culture, but can be great as another source of protein and high fiber for your fry. Finding daphnia cultures is also going to be a real hassle, but I am sure someone out there sells them, so surf and you shall find. :). Daphnia do not travel very well and I recommend ordering them when the weather is moderate, like in early fall or late spring. Also I recommend choosing a fast delivery method (express etc..)

Snail cultures:  (not a betta food, but a betta fry best friend)

Snails are a fry's best friends. They eat all the junk off the fry tank's bottom and greatly reduce the ammonia and nitrite levels in your fry tanks. Snails hate salt so you must not add salt to your fry tank if you are going to put snails in them. Snails  will usually promptly multiply in your tanks. The only draw back is that they can carry diseases so beware of where you get them from!  Do not purchase snails at your local pet store, they are kept with fish which carry diseases! In general I have never had a problem with my snails, but I got them from a very very very clean store.
