Very cool Rob. Maybe the berried shrimp and larvae will encourage the others to reproduce. If you look with a hand lens 7x at the larvae you see their little legs are in constant motion. You have to ask where do they get their energy. You may consider reducing the volume of air bubbles to reduce currents. i really am not sure if the current is bad but where they are from there is no water movement/current. Not to jinx you but do not be concerned if a berried shrimp begins to drop her eggs over several days. I have had this happen for no reason i could discern. I have read that others have experienced this.

I wouldn't be surprised if she lost her eggs. She's just spent 2 1/2 days being tossed around in a box in the dark. Fingers are crossed, though!

I turned down the flow on the sponge filter last week and removed the Fluval internal filter as the shrimp acclimated in a separate container tonight. There was little Opae movement in the tank while the filter was running, now there's lots!

The seller recommended feeding spirulina algae to the tank for the shrimplets. Guess even the adults will like that.

Happy happy, joy joy!

There's at least five baby opae ula (zoes, are they?). Here's a picture or two.

I have a 1.25 gallon pillar tank. Hope to add picture today. No shrimp yet but will add this weekend from my breeding tank. No filter, no air just a light.

Kinda wish I had space for a another 20L. Most space I have on my rack is for a 5 or maybe a 10 gallon. I wish they had a 10L.
