Can you put up some photos of your alpha tank setup? Do you use a filter etc?

My first tank. They are hiding of course. :cry:

Just a simple tank with no filter.
I wanted to ask, have you ever gotten the alphas to release larvae in your tank? I'm seriously thinking of getting some.

Close up video. Notice the large claws.

Do you keep them at the same tank perameters as the Opae ula?

I see they are in stock at shrimpmart. Hope you have better luck with larvae. Now you need a female and a male. :blush:

From what I've read they become berried more often then Opae ula but the lava don't seem to survive longer then a few days?

For me, I didn't see them but I know what to do the next time it happens.

Do they require a higher SG to survive?

Don't know. Wish someone can answer. From your research, do you know of anyone that had success?
