    Unless the price is truly outrageous, it is less important than good, reliable culturing information. This is one of those live foods, like microworms, vinegar eels and Grindals where you are buying a starter culture and the ability to keep them reproducing over the years is important.

    Don't buy unless you are sure you know how to maintain the culture.

    It is a big $5 for a 200ml bottle of green water. Thanks Wright, I now go search for information on culturing them. Will amend into this post once i found something juicy.

    This website have instruction on how to start culturing your own rotifer.

    Oops!

    This is a site for culturing salt-water rotifers. IDK if the same process works for fresh-water varieties.

    Hmm.. if its for salt water rotifers it may not be applicable for fresh water rotifers.

    Kee Hoe, just a suggestion, try a search on Google for "culturing fresh water rotifers". I guess there'll be more than one site telling you how to do so. Let us know if the rotifer culture works out.

    Go to nearest water source(lake or something) and take sand with net. Move water to pettri dish, and use microscope. And just look for it. Rotifiers tend to be stuck to some hard surface. They dont like to swim freely.
