My New Larvae tank, its got 1 larvae and 1 adult in there to test the water and they are still alive and well after 4 days... time to move some larvae in from thr 140 litre breeder! I will move all larvae into here the from here on out until i have sold all the Opae ula from the 1st larvae tank then swap over and put all larvae in the 1st tank etc.

I moved over around 10 to 15 larvae from my 140 litre breeding tank and put the into my new larvae tank (#2) and will see how well they do, i need to buy a few ceramic caves for that new tank for the babies to hide in.

Killifish 100, are those rocks/shell to the right top inside the tank? What is in the center?

Looks like your filters can support a million Opae Ula shrimps!
