Water Butt for Daphnia

Hi everyone,

I was thinking of trying to breed Daphnia in my garding. Can i just simply buy a watter Butt like the ones you get from a common DIY shop.

Would i need to modify the Butt at all or its it fine how it is.

Also will i have to keep the Butt indoors in the winter, or with the daphnia be fine, i have sort of kept dapnia before in an old goldfish bowel, but heavy wind blew the bowl over and smashed. So i dont know whether the daphnia will survive over the winter months..
By the way I live in England, so my winters are not that extreme but rather chilly :)

Thanks for any replys.. Any links also I would be greatful.

I have to admit, this post confused me beyond reason.

For those of you not in the UK, "water butt" apparently means "rain barrel."

haha,yeah we all have different words,i forgot.
have to say i've got a large rain barrel,
i use it for complete tank overhall,i can save the majority
of my tank water,and it gives a fair bit of space for the fish too.
hope your idea works out. :)
