I'm watching it closely, in the hope it's running just as my tank is ready.... :wink:

That's right guys, while i have free time i'm implementing a store section which will sell Opae ula shrimp to start with and possibly macro algae too. The shrimp baby's are still too small to ship but they are doing well and i have a constant supply of larvae being born now so in a month or 2 i should have some ready. At the moment i feel they are just too small to ship and i wouldn't want them to get hurt.

Perfect for me bud, my tank won't be ready for at least 2 months (I'm thorough. lol). Good news on the macro algae too, especially if it's already growing in brackish conditions ready to go. :cool:

I'd like to give Caulerpa prolifera a go to be honest, kinda put off though as I haven't a clue how to acclimatise it to brackish. Not like shrimp or fish that you can drip acclimatise. lol Reading around though, it usually does as well as Chaeto in brackish set ups.

Still, be good to see an organised Opae'Ula store here in the UK. You can count on my buying from you in the future I'd say. `

Things are starting to look good on the baby shrimp front! I counted around 40 eating from the substrate, caves and netted bag and they really are starting to grow well!

Cool, they might be ready just as my little Opae tank is. :wink:

I will need to figure out how to net the shrimp without netting any larvae, its going to be a mission and a half. :hmm:
