      Daphnia are filter feeders..they eat one celled
      organisms.. like protazoa, Green Algae and bacteria..
      Your triops are never that small. Though.. when your
      triops are naupilae, they eat the same diet..so
      daphnia may eat up all the food and your Baby triops
      may starve. Once they are adult formed and a few days
      bigger.. they will no longer share a food source.
