    Ok so I was wanting to use water daphnia for my investigation, and having ordered them online I thought they would be pretty easy to maintain in a laboratory. However, not even 24 hours after I had placed them within a water environment, they were all dead!!! I had put them in cool distilled water and fed them a few drops of a yeast solution, I was wondering what might have caused this problem?? Should I use pond water instead to try and maintain their natural environment? Any feedback would be very much appreciated!!
