Test conditions

Test temperature:
21.5 - 23.4°C
pH:
7.7 - 8.1
Dissolved oxygen:
79 - 100%
Details on test conditions:
Method: Semistatic test, renewal of test solutions 3 times/week, 10 replicates/concentration, 1 parent animal/replicate, 40 ml test solution/parent animal
Test concentrations : 0, 1 . 6 , 4 , 10, 25, 63 mg/I
Selection of concentratlons: Test concentrations were chosen according to the 24 h-EC50 -value
(139 mg/l) for acute toxicity so that parental Daphnias wouldn't die
during the 21 d exposure
Light intensity/cycle : 1200 - 1500 lux. Iight/dark-cycle 17/7 h
Dilution water. Inorganic salt solution supplemented with vitamins =
dilution water Elendt M7 (OECD 211) + dilution water (ISO 6341), proportions 1 : 1
Dilution waters were prepared in activated carbon and reverse osmosis filtered tap water, conductivity 0.5 mS/m
Dilution waters were aerated for 24 h before use, pH was settled at range 7 .7-7 . 8
Stock solution: 2-ethylhexanoic acld 1000 mg/I Elendt M7 dilution water (pH 3 .9 )
Renewal of the test solutions: Renewal frequency monday-wendsday-friday
Fresh solutions were prepared from the stock solution and dilution waters into replicate test vessels just before each renewal
Newbom offspring (living-dead-eggs) were counted from the old test solutions
Parent animals were carefully transferred to the fresh solutions by pipetting
Concentrated algal feed was added into the fresh test solutions according to the TOC concentration determined from cell density
