Cool. Now you need one of the opposite sex! To see if offspring is the same color...

I have a few in the tank. Not sure the sex. Don't have any interest in breeding a specific color at this time. I guess if I had more but for now it's only 3-4 and don't feel like separating them.

Yes I am. What else can I do as the numbers keep climbing up? I've given some away to friends. I really don't care if they sell. Personally I would rather keep them all but I promised my wife that I would.

Yeah as least pay for the electricity. I'm not a business and this is not my way of making a living. Straight pure hobbyist. The price is not the cheapest and in reality I could care less if it sells. It's not like i'm buying from the islands and reselling. I think once you do stuff like that you lose interest. These opae facinate me.

Now I have gotten into another shrimp. Not sure if I want to continue in FW but I enjoy it. Problem with FW is tank parameters are more crazy. Upkeep is not a leave it and be done like the opae ula.
