I found this article on Reef Builders. Looks like a cool easy system to grow rotifers. What do you all think?

Anyone know what the purpose is for the blue mesh?

Too complicated for me. I just use 5g containers and an open ended air line.

my guess is its a mesh filter powered by the bubbles going bottom to top
sounds cool if its really cheap it might be worth it if not diy

Blue mesh holds the filter floss. I'd buy it they put a lot of work into this support that effort. You want cool new technology just spend a few bucks to help those that are developing it.

I'd like to buy one now if they were selling them already.

Why buy when just a bucket and airline work fine and don't cost anything.

I have to amend my last statement.
I was just downstairs and with the rots, I noticed the spoon I use to measure the rots after meshing them is only a half teaspoon, so a mature culture is only 2 1/2 teaspoons, not 5.
Culture is not as dense as I thought.
I think I was confusing the rot spoon with the artemia spoon as I sell the adult brine shrimp by the teaspoon.

That is a small amount of rotifers per container.

It is plenty enough for me raising seahorse fry though, with even more left over for selling.
Tomorrow when 2 people will be picking up their orders, I will pour the whole container through the 250 mesh bag and measure out the total number of half teaspoons, just out of curiosity now.
I've always just guessed that there was about a third still remaining when I harvest.

After draining, I got 8 level half teaspoons of rots plus some more smeared around the mesh that I didn't bother trying to scrape up but it wouldn't end up being more than half of that spoon.
So, when I harvest 5 portions I still have 3 left to start the new culture.

Yes, but I use dead powder to mix my blend that I add.
Before, I was using live all the time and other than nanno, I was having trouble keeping them alive.
Now while I have to clean the container a bit more often, I no longer have to grow live phyto to feed the rots and brine.
Spirulina powder is VERY economical at $10 a pound.
