Looking for bright red/ solid red Opae Ula sellers in the US

Hi fellow Opae Ula keepers and enthusiasts.

I know Opae Ula can vary in color depending on their location/island of origin. I am wondering if anyone knows of US Opae Ula sellers that have the bright red or solid color morph. I have attached pictures that I found online of the coloration I am looking for.

I’ve been keeping a tank Opae Ula for over 5 years. Most my shrimp are pale pink, with some being almost clear. My initial colony of 20 now numbers over a 100, so I believe they are healthy and happy and not stressed.

Planning on starting another tank and would love to get some of the Red color morph Opae Ula.

Wow. Nice shrimp! They are very red. A lot redder than my current colony.
They are very close to what I'm looking. I'm still looking at for few other sellers, and if they don't get back to me I might buy some.
Thanks for posting the pics.

They won't get back to you. Nobody I know of has the bright red opae for sale. All the ones in the US are pink, white, & so on. None are dark red. Good luck. If you do more power to you. I think I know all of them but maybe not.

Hey Vorteil. You were right. No one got back to me.
I’m currently cycling my new tanks, and will hopefully be ready to order from you soon.

Somtimes its the light or the filter people are using that make them look super red.
