Just starting a topic. Share website or videos or info. :tongue: Hope we can have one just for Opae Ula and maybe a video or an eye witness in the future. :blush:

This site talks about shrimp in general about reproducing. http://www.planetinverts.com/shrimp_reproduction.html

My analogy of molting is "taking off clothes" :blush: and making herself attractive. The males see this and starts their "ritual" or seems like "harassing" the female right away or within minutes. :tongue:
I assume the female allows one male to mate in the dark "cave" during the next few hours or days.
