For feeding filter feeding corals it is pretty easy to keep a rotifer culture going. If I can do it with my hectic schedule anyone can.

Yeah, but it is a LOT of work, would need to have two phytoplankton cultures running (in case one crashes) and two copepod cultures.

The big issue is that I just don't have the room. I really don't have the room for the rotifer culture! But my wife has been tolerating it. LOL

Yes, one breeding culture and the next dropping the matured culture into the display. Yes, it is a lot of work. But we didn't get into this hobby without thinking this was going to be easy. That's what makes this hobby so rewarding ang interesting. We are trying to mimic Mother Nature's work in a closed environment; a functioning enclosed ecosystem that works in harmony. If this was easy everyone would be doing it and this hobby would loose its appeal. I don't think Mother Nature ever complained that it was a lot of work
