 I  doubt  you  would  easily  find  daphnia  for  collection  in  Mumbai.  You  could  try  the  Bandra  Talao  or  if  that  fails  then  Sweet  home  aquarium  opp  has  live  Daphnia  Chuckle   
 
 Did  you  use  the  decap  brine  I  gave  Isaac  ?

 I  happened  to  collect  it  today  from  isaac  uncle.  Not  used  it  as  of  now  but  thank  you.  I  am  certain  there  exist  a  place  to  collect  daphnia  within  mumbai  vicinity.  As  with  my  tetra  project  i  happened  to  get  in  touch  with  people  who  do  the  same  and  collect  daphnia  from  areas  well  within  reach  and  tons  of  them.  The  however  don't  disclose  the  location.  Those  fellows  opposite  bandra  talao  are  arrogant   had  dealt  with  them  once  and  that  would  be  my  last   Smile  .

 I  think  it  would  be  best  to  buy  once  and  then  culture  it  using  green  water.  That  way  you  could  be  certain  that  they  are  disease  free.  Also  collecting  from  a  pond,  you  might  collect  some  other  bugs  and  pests.  Maybe  Powai  lake  is  an  option  as  a  collection  source  or  somewhere  in  Aarey  there  are  several  ponds  or  Borivali  national  park  ?

 FYI  -  The  Bandra  LFS  that  sells  Daphnia  told  me  that  the  guy  who  delivers  it  gets  it  from  Panvel.  (wonder  if  its  true  ?)  But  the  delivery  has  been  irregular.  Like  yesterday  stock  arrived  but  nothing  today.

 He  says

 u  can  find  it  in  powai  lake
 i  hve  talk  to  one  lady  who  worked  in  haffkin  institute
 they  dnt  sell  them
 but  they  collect  it  from  powai  lake
 but  u  know  their  r  many  stains  of  daphnia
 powai  lake  strain  is  very  small,microscopic
 u  can  not  see  them  with  naked  eyes
 we  need  daphnia  pullex,  or  daphnia  magma
 they  are  big  enough  to  see  and  to  feed  fish
 they  use  them  for  toxicology  test
 so  powai  lake  has  daphnia  but  carry  big  bucket,rope,  and  microscope
 
 bed  idea...so  try  to  source  them  from  lfs,

 +1  with  Pio...Its  a  dirty  job....There  is  used  to  be  Buffalo  shed  where  the  Sarovar  Grand  Premiere  hotel  stands  today  in  Goregaon.  And  I  had  seen  lots  and  lots  of  daphnia  there.  And  after  seeing  the  surroundings,  I  would  not  want  to  use  Daphnia  in  my  tanks  even  if  someone  told  me  that  it  came  from  a  clean  pond.

 Would  be  best  to  buy  it!  The  next  best  thing  would  be  to  identify  a  stagnant  water  body  near  your  house  n  dump  a  bag  full  of  daphnia  there  in  the  hope  that  they  somehow  survive  and  multiply!

 So  then  how  do  we  know  where  the  LFS  is  getting  it  from  ?  
 Why  this  faith  ?
 Do  they  breed  this  ?  Do  they  clean,  quarantine  and  treat  (with  what)  it  with  medicine  before  we  buy  it  ?
