Opae Ula Related
New to The Planted Tank

Hi,

Just discovered this thread and Planted Tank. Great stuff!

I discovered Opae Ula when they were sold at Sharper Image in those Ecospheres a long time ago. I didn't purchase though but discovered it again in Hawaii 2 summers ago and did purchase some. I don't have a thread or site but started a video "library". Last thread post was Nov. 2015, hope this thread is not "dead".

These guys live in brackish water, you will be lucky to find any plants that thrive in it.

WaterLife Since this thread has been bumped back up I might as well ask. Roy, if you have any Opae Ula for sale, let me know! I'm local.

Laika 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?

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....
