After my last tank started leaking i think due to low quality tank I decided to move them into a Jar as i saw many success with Jar setups here hehe i mixed new brackish water and test with one opae for today see if no issue i will transfer the other 8 to this jar hahaha. 3.3L jar after minusing all the deco stuff the water capacity that fit was 3L. mixed 60g of instant ocean marine salt to 3L waters and aerated it overnight.

At first just took a quick glance at the jar. No glasses on so I thought I saw Legos in there :laugh:

The jar will do great. Just enjoy it and the opae will thrive in it. So simple & easy. You'll be surprised how well they day.

:blush: I like those ceramic cubes. I was thinking of getting some as decoration for my tank.

My shrimps seem to like their lava cubes. Maybe they like art. :lol:

@Vorteil i cant remember where but i remember seeing a lego scaped aquarium for the opaes somewhere hahaha they scaped star wars theme with legos and they used those mini lego and left some spaces in between the lego as caves for opae hahaha looks coool but tad too many lego and not that much natural look for my liking.

@Owlbit its quite cheap to get those online i guess hahaha i saw another type which looks like a starfish hahaha

@Algae In Space yeah they actually look cool jump put it there feels like i have put 2 pieces of art into it i guess because of the colours it looks nice as well i am glad i got this colour instead of the white colour cube haha
