C-Fern sperm can swim for over two hours at 25 C in the Sperm Release buffer as described in the Chemotaxis exercise - Chemical Attraction. (See the Manual or web pages for the formulation.) Sperm will swim a much shorter time in plain distilled water, although it is more than sufficient to obtain fertilization of eggs by sperm.
