Hi all, I am new here. I was wondering if anyone know what type of redness enhancement food I could get to make my Opae Ula more red?

I would stick with normal food, getting your tank parameters perfect will bring out deep red happy shrimp colours. The website I linked in chat has red shrimp because they are imported from Hawaii direct and when they come from the wild they are naturally a deep red for a good long while, which must come from the diet they have in their ponds.

I want to add per the book "Hawaiian Anchialine Pools" that Opae Ula come in various colors. This is affected by genetics, environment and behaviour.

So can "we all get along". ImageImageImageImageImageImage

SG Sam, you should post your tank up and maybe a member will know the plants you have.
