I also was experimenting to see if the Alpha would eat a opae ula larva (see 1.03 mark) and after 24 hours the larva is still there. So this particular Alpha was not interested but I noticed it was staring at it for the longest time. :what:

Ultimate goal is to video an Alpha larva. :sidesmile:

I see the mom berried again. So just a data point that it was around 2 months from the last time she was berried.

Visited a few Anchialine pools in Hawaii. See pic of the salinity and temperature of this pool as I was curious to know.ImageImageImageImageImage

More to come.

Would be interested in the diversity of conditions :cool:
ImageYes, the ones I visited have opae ula. Here is a screenshot from a video.
Fyi, I dont take any opae ula from the pools.

Of course there are pools with no opae ula like this one near a hotel.Image

Super cool! Thanks for sharing. I was quite aware of temps rising quite high in the pools. But it's something different to see it like this :grin3:

So cool to see them in the wild!

How close is that one to the beach? Looks like there's beach sand in that pool. What island are you on?
