If you actually want to keep them and raise some, you could try daphnia. They are also used as fish food but are big enough to be easy to see and only need an air stone for equipment. You can feed them on soybean meal, brewer's yeast and spirulina powder mixed together. You need to remove a part of them almost every day or the population will get so big the culture will fail. I change water on mine every week using some old tank water as the new water for them. The water that I drain from the daphnia tank goes through a brine shrimp net and what gets into the net becomes a treat for my fish.
