:-) Can almost see what's behind, or around them, one.

All is well in the Opae ula tanks.

Over the past 10 days or so I put another one together. This one has no filtration, no airstones. No live rock. An LED lights it up.

This is more like the traditional set up.

What it does have is African Cichlid Sand (a mixture of aragonite and black sand) and a whole bunch of lava rock. Oh, and a chunk of lace rock.

Water set at the specific gravity of about 1.012, like the other tanks.

There'll be very infrequent feeding in this tank.

Let's see how it goes...

Meanwhile, under the fluorescent in my spare room...

I keep several small quarantine vessels under my grow lights. Most of the space is taken up by orchids.

In one of the containers is a small live rock. It has some great macro algae growing on it, is why I bought it several weeks ago. It cost me $2.00.

I didn't realize until I got home with it that it was carrying several hitchhikers. Namely a snail and two tiny hermit crabs.

I've ignored the rock and contents, just topping the container off with distilled water when necessary.

Today while topping it off I saw some unexpected movement. Seems one of the hermits hatched some eggs!

A heck of a lot more than 10 baby hermits.

Here's the parents:

Thanks Greg...

Wondering what part of Idaho you're in.

Mom was born in Boise, I spent summers in the Gooding/Bliss/Hagerman area.

I'm in Meridian. Meridian and Boise have grown so much that they now touch each other, so pretty much the same thing.

Rob,

How many Opae's do you plan to get before you start selling some here and there? Or do you? If you plan on getting rid of a few (say 20?), please let me know
