Hi Jennifer,
What type of rotifers? I have been fooling around with B. rubens.
It is, on the average, about 25-50% the size of artemia napuli. If this
works I gotta go down to the local K-MArt and see what they have. I am not
to hopeful as Maui's retail sucks.... May make harvesting faster. I am
using a 40-60 micron screen (however primarily to strain the greenwater to
prevent other cilliates from taking over the culture). I do recall one of
brine shrimp nets working, but I expect that it only caught the largest
rotifers....
