Opae Uia,Amano

It’s a myth that Amano shrimp larvae will die in four days if not move to freshwater after morp.
I got after morp Amano shrimp larvae left in brackish water and never leaves the brackish water and still lived after a year and now in my opae ula shrimp tank. They’re about the sizes as opae ula shrimp. Only time can tell if they will berry and breed, got five in the tank.

It's from my understanding that adult amanos can handle up to 17 ppt brackish water... I don't see any issue if the opae ula are kept around that or below. (1.008 to 1.012)


My opae ula tank sits at 1.010 salinity and I haven't had any zoes (that weren't opae ulas) survive in the tank as of yet...


What salinity is your opae ula tank?

That's good to know, it may give people who try better success rate. I've heard of people losing them during the transition from salt to full F/W.

A little over 20 ppt. They’re adapted to brackish water environment and become smaller Shrimp. Not sure I will put them back in freshwater.

I don't trust hydrometers... they can be inaccurate so quickly! LOL Could you verify with an LFS on your salinity??
