odin,
You have a tank with just bright reds to hopefully breed bright red offsprings?

That's right, I have a tank with large reds and a seperate tank with red and clear bands, both are full of youngsters at the moment so I'm hoping that when they mature I can get some real red Opae'ula breeding :)

cool. interesting to see if clear bands opae ula have offsprings that are also clear bands.

on this of video of mines. i keep thinking the yellow mass near the internals are developing eggs but can't confirm. Anyone think or do you think they are? or just internal organs of some sort. See the heart beating. :ugeek:

That's an awesome close up! what camera are you using? im hoping they produce offspring with bands, here is a quick video of one before i separated them into their own tank.

With the yellow on your shrimp its always hard to tell as the internals seem to be all shapes colour and sizes depending on the shrimp, maybe she is carrying ;)
