While I was watching an Opae Ula video on two separate occasions I was asked what kind of fish they were. They swim much mote like fish than shrimp.

Mine are lazy, if they want to get from the top of the tank to the bottom they just freeze and fall downwards and sometimes upside down and if it ever catches your eye it looks like one has died right before your eyes and is free falling to the substrate! Then just as they are at the bottom of the tank they correct themself s and swim on :smile:

They're smart. Why swim when they can float?

Ive got one on video pulling off that move, if you skip to 2:00 on the video and watch the left hand side rock and watch above it you will see one free falling down :laugh: :smile: :sidesmile:

I saw him or her What a beautiful video! How large is the tank? As you might guess, I'm becoming obsessed with these little shrimp.

The tank is 67litres (17 US gallons) they make great tank inhabitants to watch and entertain.

That's a good size. It's really a wonderful tank. Better than watching television.

I find them really relaxing to watch, very entertaining to say the least.
