In my lab at Iowa State University, I maintain year-round, reproducing cultures of numerous living freshwater invertebrates. Teachers and students are welcome to visit my lab and I am happy to share tips for culturing invertebrates. I am also happy to provide, free-of-charge to visiting teachers, living specimens to start their own culture and/or use in their biology classes (take-home containers and samples of critter food are included, as well). I have large cultures of the following freshwater organisms:
 

Hydra sp.[feeding]  
Planaria [feeding]
Vinegar eels (nematodes)[locomotion]
Blackworms (Lumbriculus variegatus)[locomotion][circulation][regeneration]
Micro-oligochaetes (family Naididae)[locomotion]
Leeches (Erpobdellids - predator on Lumbriculus)[feeding][locomotion]
Snails (Helisoma trivolvis - ramshorn snail-albino)[circulation][development]
Freshwater limpets (Ferrisia sp)[image]
Fingernail clams [image]
Freshwater isopods [Asellus aquaticus][image]
Ostracods [locomotion]
Cladocerans (daphnids)[locomotion][phototaxis]
Amphipods [image]
Copepods [locomotion]
Artemia (brine shrimp)[development][lab kit]
