Water Flea, Chlorella sp, Moina macrocopa


Studies of Chlorella sp. used to produce moina sp., the breed of Moina sp. to each culture with different densities have an effect on the generation’s offspring of Moina macrocopa by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd can give a birth increase and can be found the best density’s Chlorella sp. with 2.69x105 cells/milliliter by the 4th generation and 3.50x105 cells/milliliter by the 5th generation. Observe the same breeding at density Chlorella sp. is 5.3x105 cells/milliliter have generation’s offspring is less than cause of when it fastest growth up that make it will to shorten life span but is not significant different on 1st offspring to 6th offspring 6th breed and 7th breed have use density’s chlorella sp. The numbers of 4.4x105 cells/milliliter and 5.3x105 cells/milliliter were not significantly different between the 1st and 3rd offspring. That finding was significantly different from the 4th offspring and 5th offspring, and if compared to the level of density to breed in each treatment, the 2nd breed was not significantly different from each offspring, with the best quality of Moina sp. is 7th offspring have 6.75±0.63 price/breed. When the quantity of the product is increased rapidly, the Moina sp. breeder. By quantity of Moina sp. fed with Chlorella sp. at a density of 5.3x105 cells/milliliter, the total number of offspring per female for the whole life span was 4.4x105, 3.50x105, 2.69x105 and 1.79x105 cells/milliliter, which were 91.8, 87.5, 79.4, 75.3 and 70.4 price/breed, respectively. Controlling the amount of Chlorella sp. for the culture of water fleas can reduce the amount of chemicals caused by overfeeding.
