Has any anyone had success culturing these?

If so any tips?

Plenty of info around. A web site called rotifer.com I think, is good.

If you use nsw for them, make sure you sterilise it as other organisms will colonise in the culture very quick. Boil it, microwave, etc.

If you use phyto, allways have some frozen instant algae as back up.

Just some tips that worked for me.
