Uses the same principle as an air sponge. Larvae is attracted to a light, air bubbles create a current they get caught up in, and they are deposited in a box for spot feeding and better maintenance.

Here's a commercial one vs DIY one that both do the same thing really.

An order has been placed. Should be getting one soon!

(I love aquarium gadgets nearly as much as electrical ones!)

Rob I have used Chad's larvae trap and it works well. However the air flow in the utube video looks too high. I use about 3-4 bubbles per second.

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

Moving one of the two berried opae ula to the new "un everything" tank. There's nearly 25 opae in it though the most I see is no more than two at a time. I've not found any bodies so I can only assume that means they're hiding. I look forward to seeing shrimplets in a month or so.


The berried opae. Wish her luck!

Her new home. She's currently in the plastic box hanging on the tank.

Rob nice tank. You make me seriously consider trying full salt. Right now I will just have to enjoy your tank.

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

A week ago tonight I put the berried opae ula in the un-everything 10 gallon tank. I just found her, the first I've seen her since I dropped her in. A bit relieved!

Thank you very much for this complete thread!

I must admit that, thanks to you (or because of you ;-) I have settled a brackish tank with those pretty critters too. They have arrived for a week now and seem to go well ; although they seem a bit shy.

Just a question about feeding. In ecospheres, they are supposed to get all they need without refill (or maybe they're just starving until they die...). In such open/classic tank, how often do you feed them? Did you notice any behavior changing when they're hungry?

Thanks.

Everybody knew it was impossible to achieve. Some idiot wasn't aware of it. And just did it.
