Rotifer Cysts, Saltwater or Freshwater

Vial of lab cultured resting rotifer cysts.  When placed in water, cysts will hatch and rotifers will reproduce asexually and number in the millions in a matter of days.  Salt water species (Brachionus plicatilis) and freshwater species (Brachionus clyciflorus) available.  Rotifers are approximately 150 -350 microns in length, compared to newly hatched artemia nauplii which measure 440-480 microns in length.  Store cysts in refrigerator or freezer for up to two years. Petri dish included.


Saltwater Rotifer Cysts 1000-3000

Saltwater starter culture of approximately 1,000-3,000 "resting" rotifer cysts (Brachionus plicatilis).


Freshwater Rotifer Cysts 3000-5000

Freshwater starter culture of approx. 3,000 Rotifer cysts (Brachionus calyciflorus).
