Tisbe ID

Postby VBMikr » Fri May 23, 2014 7:59 am

I would like to start a tisbe culture, but I'm having trouble finding a good source... the stores with Algagen bottles around here seem to have empty-looking bottles and I don't really want to pay $30 if I can't see anything moving in it!!

I found this, but I wanted to confirm they are really tisbe... he's got a few pics, but I don't know if any of them are close enough to positively identify. I question it because they appear to be kind of large to me...

What do you think?

Thanks

These look like Tisbe,but you can´t tell from an image.You should get them from a reliable source,if you want to be certain about the ID.

Thanks! Really, I just wanted to be sure that they are not tigriopus californicus... the picture makes them look pretty large and reddish, so I didn't know.

Thanks again
