Re culture containers :

I have used with success inverted 5 gallon water jugs with the bottoms cut off and the necks siliconed with a tap. These stand in a rack, with an air stone hanging down into the neck,

this will keep artemia, phytoplankton and rotifers in suspension.

Be sure to keep the jugs with the phytoplankton away from the rotifers, if the green water gets contaminated you'll ahve a great rotifer culture instead.

Depending on the set up you can use overhead flourescents and/or upright vertical lights next to the jugs.
