Hard to obtain. Pipipi is so plentiful in the islands but dont survive in brackish tanks.
Why do you think they don't survive? Too much or too little salt? Or maybe they just can't survive in water only and need air?
Pipipi on left and Pipiwai shell on right. Pipiwai are surviving in my tank and are a few years old. Pipipi tend to go up above the water line then die off. I assume they want full salinity and/or stay out of water most of the time.
Why wouldn't the Opae Ula share his food? Because he was a little shellfish
