So far I've noticed at least one difference between my Bookshelf and original 10 gallon Opae Ula tank. The shrimp are constantly on the move, out in the open in both tanks.

In the new tank I may be able to find one or two (of the six) opae if I really push myself. These guys remain hidden.

Could be one of three reasons, I'm thinking.

There's water movement (and a whole lot of it in the original 10 gallon) compared to no water movement in the new 10 gallon.

There's a lot more shrimp in the original tanks.

I'm not feeding the new tank.

I will be moving more opae ula from the Bookshelf tank to the new tank soon.

What are your plans for the hermit crabs?

Hi Doug,

Unfortunately the hermit crab larvae died within several days.

Apparently it's not really unusual for hermits to breed in captivity, but success raising the young is pretty much impossible.

There are now about 25 opae ula in the new unfiltered-no water movement-rarely fed 10 gallon tank. I moved about 20 shrimp from the Bookshelf tank tonight.

The new home for the Hermit crab parents and their tankmates and a couple Sexy Shrimp.

Planted, of course...

It's a cool one... And the shrimp are great little dancers!

Found this morning.

The first berried female opae ula in the old 10 gallon tank with live rock and macro-algae.

Rob, have you thought about building a larval snagger for better survival rate of the crabs or larval shrimp?
