Combo: the mediun that keeps zooplankton happy

The preparation for my common garden experiment for zooplankton Daphnia pulex and Simocephalus vetulus is going well. To make sure my beloved cute zooplankton can stay very happy during my experiment and ever after, my professor and I decided to make a favorable and standardized medium for them. Combo medium is our choice. It is composed of 25 chemicals and is proved to support both algae and zooplankton culture well. As my professor said, “Combo lab is fancy lab”. This medium will make our lab a cool lab while my pulex babies thrive in it.  I’m very glad to report that our first batch of Combo made my pulex very happy.
