Nice information on the culturing and that. I don't know about adult vs. young size they
are all really small. I probably can't see the young. :) But as for heat I live in AZ and
it gets darn hot here. I've never really tried one way or the other to culture mine they
are just here everywhere. I have 2 kiddie pools outside with fish in them and the are both
very full of them. Whatever it is I have I know they can survive temps at least up to about
90 F, maybe higher.
