Opae Ula, Hawaiian Red Shrimp, SuperShrimp, whatever...


Thanks. :-)

The larva was resting on the glass.

Picture was taken using this cell phone with a macro lens.

Been busy. Had a spare moment to stare into the bookshelf tank tonight.

Nice tank! I have been super interested in these shrimp I just have yet to pull the trigger and get some.

2 questions for you,

First macro lens with a cell phone? Is it something you hold to the camera part? How does it work?

Second I haven't read the entire thread so you may have answered this, does the person that you bought the starter setup still sell them, if so how could I get in contact with them?

Thanks

Hi Mias....

The lens came with a protective case that fits the back of my cell. The lens itself screws into the case over the camera lens. The case stays on the phone.

I will pm the link to my original source. If you go to AquaBid.com and do a search for Opae Ula under freshwater inverts you'll find a breeder from Texas.

Hey Rob, did you get some pics of the different colors yet? I'd love to see them in a post photo by photo

Got a couple just now. Been a bit busy around here.

The Opae Ula vary in color from nearly transparent to brilliant red. I have some beautiful red orange ones which are my favorite. Unfortunately, none were close enough to get a decent pic...

Some purple coralline algae with a green sponge (or perhaps coralline algae) in front.

Very nice. The white look like snowballs.

Just found a second berried opae ula in the planted 10 gallon tank.

So now there's two in this tank and at least two in the bookshelf tank.

Tonight in the 10 gallon opae ula tank:

Terrible pics, but finally some good news in the "un-everything" Opae Ula tank.

There's at least 20 free swimming larvae in it. :-)
