zebra for toxicology

I have to ask people who use Zebra to determine water quality (ISO
Method 7346-1) some questions.
1) I would use, as test vessels, air-tight pails (Nalgene
cat.no.71020140). They are not trasparent: do you think that it
could interfere with the test?
2) I have a small lab and at this moment I can't breed the zebra so I
buy them each time in a pet shop. The method says "whenever
there is a change of stock population, carry out a toxicity test
using a reference chemical (potassium dichromate)"
2.1 How can I spare this step?
2.2 What is a reasonable result for this test ( I cant' compare with
my previous results because I am a beginner) ?
Thanks a lot
