The most important quality for a rotifer production system is that it be there when you need it. There is nothing worse than having your whole hatchery set for a production run, your eggs have just hatched, only to find that your rotifers are dead or in short supply.
Rotifer systems can be susceptible to “crashes”. Crashes are sometime due to environmental changes or changes in bacteria, but are often due to an unforeseen and unknown problem in the management of the rotifer culture. Crashes often catch a Live Feeds Manager by surprise. Rotifers don’t make mistakes, but equipment breaks, input water can change, and people sometimes do make mistakes. However, systems can be reliable. At RMI we continuously run 3-4 systems and it has been a couple of years since we had a real “crash” in any system.
