The order arrived exactly when we needed it. The Daphnia were active and the students were able to see exactly what we were hoping they would see.

Daphnia were in bad shape when we received them but when I contacted wards they were very nice and quickly sent a replacement culture. Thank you for the excellent customer service

Daphnia magna - I ordered this and all other daphnia twice before. They came in bad shape, once were replaced. They did not survive very long.
I used to order from Wards and never had this problem. Also the amount given was very small.
I ordered elswere this year
