My goal is just to have a large tankful of Opae Ula. Something around 40-55 gallons. The coolest thing I saw was back in 1985. At Disneyworld in Orlando there was a huge Ecosphere with literally thousands of Opae Ula in it. It was just a sea of red. I had bought Opae back in 2002 in Hawaii but it was only a few. Not much info back then. The ones I have now were from sellers in Texas, Los Angeles, & Florida. The Tx & Fl breeders sold them just to thin out their stock. The LA guys sells it for profit and these are all solid bright red.

The way i do it is by 'right hand' clicking my mouse on the posts 'RE: title' link and pressing 'copy link location' then just pasting it into your post,

Here is the Link for the post to copy the location from marked in Red,

Any pics of that Disneyworld tank?

My first ones were also from Oahu, mostly light pink and white.

That would be one huge tank at 55 gallons.

No pics of the ecosphere. I originally bought my shrimp from Shirokiya in Ala Moana shopping center.
