I know, I know.. big no-no, but it gave me some cool stuff in the tank: a couple aplasia, a hermit crab, a tiny mussel, a few snails and a weird worm thing. The snails and the mussel are the only things left from that start-up phase. Spent a week or so slowly adding fresh water to get the specific gravity where I wanted it. Then I went and got my Opae Ula at a local pet store. 20 shrimp for a few dollars. Acquired some chaetomorpha and added it in there. It kinda broke down slowly and now I have some lovely hair algae stuff that the opae absolutely love. Went from 20 shrimp to over 100. They love hiding in their little lava rock crevices. Never see one with berries, but i always see a floating orange hatchling or 10 in the water. I use no filter system at all. I just top up with fresh water when needed. 12 hours of light (blue and white LED). I'll take some pics tomorrow.
Welcome, which island? Yes pics!

Hello everyone, I'm a new member who just purchased his first Opae Ula for a 10liter tank I've had set up for a couple of weeks now. I've been keeping different freshwater neocardinia types for a year but wanted to expand my shrimp room with new varieties. I have to say, Opae Ula have me completely fascinated! I cannot wait to watch them swim about or even hide, that's fine too :laugh:
