    Murmann’s (formerly Key’s Island) had some when I was in a couple weeks ago, but that is a far drive for you.

    I have not done a count, but they are consuming food at a rapid rate. Do you have a strainer and want raw product or strained rotifers in fresh mixed water?

    I do have a strainer, but im just looking for a small amount to try starting a colony.

    Well I definitely have that! I can get you a quart easily. Make sure you have a suitable hatchery. I really like the one from APBreed http://apbreed.com/product_compact_culture_system.php
    I just bought the basic kit and used my own bucket. Also you need a good food supply! These little buggers consume a ton! probably 10 to 16 ounces of green water a week.
