Ken, Here's a couple shots of the white opae ula. One is riding with a tankmate on a Malaysian Trumpet Snail which is slurping single cell algae from the water's under surface.

Thank you Rob. The second picture was just what I was looking for. If it is a female there would be no way you could miss developing egg in her ovaries.

Will try to keep an eye on him/her/it/them. Would be nice to discover an easy way to sex these critters.

It's dark. I did your trick, Ken. A pen light at the top corner of the tank and within a few minutes this showed up:

Re: Opae Ula, Hawaiian Red Shrimp, SuperShrimp, whatever...

In amongst the opae ula, both new and old is this odd something. I first noticed it in the tank over a week ago, was gone for the past few days, then suddenly showed up today. Hard telling if it's drifting in the "current" or if it's moving itself.
