The wingless fruit flies are really easy. I get them from a biological supply company. You put some instant media in a tube, add water, sprinkle a little yeast, and add some flies. Cap with a sponge (all this stuff comes in a set) and wait. Soon, lots of fruit flies! The wingless are great. Open the top of the fly container, invert and tap, and watch the fish feed.
Brine shrimp are easy, but the fruit flies take much less room.
Do Daphnia have much nutritional value? Somehow, I thought they were out of favor as a live food, but can't remember why exactly.
