Rob I like the white Opae. I have one or two myself. I have been keeping my eyes open for anyone selling white ones. It would be nice to have a red and white colony.

Hi Ken, I have a number of em that look like "rili" as well.

There used to be a vendor on Ebay who sold white opae ula as feeders. Sad, when I think about it...

A close up of one of the suspected red macro algae. Guess it could be an invert of some sort, too.

I have two adult rili. There are several juvies that are may also be rili. If you ever see the eBay seller give me pm. Also the pink algae/invert is a real keeper. I hope it grows like a weed so you will have to thin it out. I would happily relieve you of the burden of disposing of the excess.

I wish I had purchased some of the white opae ula. I'd keep them happily now! The vendor advertised them as seahorse food. I sent him a text a few minutes ago, will let you know if I can hear back from him.

I positively love the red macro algae looking thing. It's still at half an inch tall so far. Funny, isn't it, how the stuff we don't want takes over, while that we do barely grows? I'll continue posting pics of it, as it's one of my favorite things about this tank apart from the opae ula, of course!

Hi Howard!

They are all doing wonderfully! They mergered so well in the population that I can't find them.

Home sweet home!

Thanks again, bud!

Looks like a piece of plant seed or something. How big is it?

Is what I was thinking. Measures about an eighth of an inch. A Malaysian Trumpet Snail was sitting close by, was wondering if it might be an unhatched egg case or something.

I don't think it can be a mts egg I think they give live birth. I might be wrong.

Yup they do. Perhaps the egg that the snailet hatches from inside mom didn't hatch inside mom this time? Lol

I considered that but it just doesn't look like that is what it is. Maybe something from outside fell in the tank
