An easy to raise live food is daphnia. The only hard part is getting a starter culture. Once you have the culture going, scoop a few each day and keep feding the remaining ones so they will breed and increase their numbers. For smaller food, I like to use microworms. Again, the hard part seems to be getting a starter culture. Once they are set up you restart the culture every few weeks and throw out the cultures that get too nasty smelling. With microworms, the yeast they live on eventually will get to the point that they are producing a lot of vinegar in the culture and the culture will need a fresh start before the vinegar kills everything off. A fresh sweet culture has a faint yeasty odor, not a vinegar odor.
