Update?

If my cardinal tank does well, then these guys are almost certainly #2 on my list. It's a shame they take so long to reproduce.

Hey Destroyer,

They don't take long at all. Within two months I had berried opae ula. Now days there's always berried opae!

The larva are very interesting to observe for the first two or three weeks are they drift head-down in the tanks. Then they settle, getting lost (at least in my tanks) in the bustle.

One day I'll try some cardinals!

Hi Rob,
Very cool journal!

Do you have any water flow in the tank with the babies? I've read that they need relatively still conditions.

Hi Lex,

There are small HOB filters on two of my three opae ula tanks. There is water movement, but not a whole lot. The intakes are covered with sponges which hang directly under the "waterfall" from the filters. The shrimp pick goodies off the sponges, even under direct water movement.

There are larva in all of the tanks. Once settled, though, I rarely see them.

Imsyu,

These have turned out to be the hardiest and easiest shrimp to keep, by far. :-)

For all of those out there that believe (for whatever reason) that Opae Ula need to live in dead unfiltered unfed tanks let me prove to you otherwise...

I just completed a partial water change in my original Opae Ula tank. The Bookshelf. It had become quite overgrown with chaeto and other algae. After removing at least two cups of chaeto and doing a 10 percent water change the following showed up:

A settled larvae, eating as the adults do. After a few minutes of close observation another six swam past.

The person I bought opae ula shrimps from convinced me that I need to use distilled water. Do I really have to? Can't I just use Prime with tap water? o.o
