All tanks are producing. Shows that our favorite shrimp aren't picky!

Thank you so much for this thread and keeping it updated Rob! I just spent most of my morning reading it straight through.

These shrimp look so amazing and their environment seems so foreign and unique to me!

This really makes me tempted to setup yet another tank.......crap

Hi, Im new to this thread and it sure has alot of interesting stuff. Because I dont have time to get through all 50 pages could you recap for me/others the tanks? (Stocking, size, plants/corals, lighting, filtration, etc.)

I see lots of awesome pictures but have no clue the background. Im new to brackish/salt tanks and am interested in opae ulas. Thanks alot!!

1.005 is fine

I have kept mine in salinities from 1.005 up to 1.025 (an initial mistake with buyer--there were some deaths). They act just as happy and vigorous and colorful at 1.005 as at 1.012. Willow moss will make it just fine at 1.005 and japanese moss balls up to 1.008. Note: I have a small colony of a dozen and am not interested in breeding. Just hanging....

sellers over here in the UK have around 1.018 - 1.020 sg for breeding results. Not sure if thats good for them or not?
