they both grow and breed the same. If you live in a warm climate then get moina. If you live in a cold climate go for daphnia.

Here temperature varies due to 3 seasons.
Like temperature ranges from 13- 35 degree

Get some of each and keep them in separate ponds. The daphnia will have higher numbers in the cooler weather and the moina will have higher populations in the warmer weather.

The daphnia will die back when it gets over 25C and the moina won't do much below 15C

Do adult betta eat moina?

They should. Fish are opportunistic predators and will generally eat anything that fits in their mouth. As long as the moina are small enough then the Betta should eat them.

Is there two types of moina like red and yellowish white i think.
Which one is good on nutrition basis?

their colour is normally from the food they eat. If they eat single celled algae they go a green colour inside their body, if they eat bacteria or paramecium they go white/ cream inside, and different foods give them the different colours.

If you use them as part of a varied diet then it doesn't matter which ones you use.
