Your opae ula set up looks great. 12 hours of light a day is a good start. I am using 18. It may cause some green algae growth but the shrimp seem to like it. Plenty of food. Good luck!

Thanks Ken. I'm adding another 100 or so opae ula to the tank tomorrow if the USPS plays right!

I prefer the air stone, at a lesser volume then you have in #52, over the HOB filter. Filters are not necessary. A strategically placed sponge filter is also fine. The currents created by the air bubbles seem to have no impact on shrimp. The air flow rate can be reduced when zoaea are present. The finer the bubbles the better. Do not over populate. When the opae ula begin to breed your population can easily triple within a year. When they start to breed there seems to be no end.

Where are you getting the extra 100? I am looking for opae ula from the southern big island or from another island.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for writing.

The HOB is flowing just enough to trickle, less water movement than the airstone. The shrimp are out and about doing their shrimpy things this afternoon, obviously not disturbed by the filter.

I will pass your name on to the seller.

Yes I do. Please forgive me but as a newbe I am not sure how to post pictures. Are there size limits? Also my tank is over grown with a macro algae.

I sent you a PM, Ken... Seems you may have some algae a lot of Opae Ula parents would like to have!

Speaking of macro algae, the chado-whatyamacallit is still doing fine in this tank. No signs of unhappiness.
