Are you going to make it brackish so they can breed? I dont know how HC can handle salt though.

This is adorable

Brackish will kill the HC, I'd just keep it fresh

500 ml = 0.132 US gallons might be small even for opae :/ Maybe daphnia will be the new pico-shrimp?

Right now it is still fairly new so until the HC grows in a little bit more I'll hold off on the pics. I am surprised it grew in TOO well. At this rate, the HC should completely fill in by next Monday! Only requires about 10 days of growth, OMG

I honestly don't know how to make it brackish even if I wanted to. I only have table salt with iodine so not even sure if I want to risk doing it. My goal is to have something fun and cute to look at my desk

I think it will too. I though of adding only a pinch of salt and mix it well before adding it in during water changes but there is no way I could measure salinity so I rather not try and overdose to kill all the HC

I redid the calculation today down to the mm and the volume is almost twice as high. I only used the online system before and now, this is true measurement. So its 950ml, basically 0.25 gallons, not too bad for about 5 or so Opae yes? I heard they are really small, literally ----- as adults so they should do just fine I hope. Water changes will be fun with a pipette! LOL

HEHE. Thank you. I thought it was a pretty simple setup. Actually got a perfect little tree for it too, but that'll come when this cube is filled. Still debating if I should use Mini XMas or Mini. Fissidens for the tree

My sister was cleaning up her house and she happen to have this laying around and thought I could use it for something. It was perhaps some flower vase before?

i used to own a biosphere with 3 of them (i know, inhumane, etc. etc. i was 11 when i got it). they lived for 3-4 years or so in that little thing, super duper hardy. i think they should do just fine in that tank, so long as you dont suck them up during water changes (tiny is an understatement).

I really like to look of those things, but you are right its inhumane so I went with this one and keep the population in control with just about 5 or less. W/C often so they will have a fun little world for them to enjoy
