Post by Litonotus »

the first one is Scapholeberis mucronata for sure

I'm almost sure that second one is Daphnia sp

I do not know the ID of the 3rd one...

Hello Litonotus,

Identification of these waterfleas is difficult. I would call the second one Daphnia spec. and the third one might be Moina spec. but I am not sure.

Kind regards

Clado

thank you (:

the differences between them are very noticeable, but it is really hard to ID them anyway...

I do not know the ID; but I always amazed by the DIC effect that you get with your UGF.
