Hey guys,
Singapore alum over here :wink:. I don't think Opae Ula need anything to boost fertility - they just need a suitable and stable environment - funny thing with them is that if you stop messing with them and just leave them alone...they will breed. My tank is about a 20L tank, and it took about 4 to 5 months before they started breeding. Just top off water (at least once a week) and feed sparingly (I feed a little once every two weeks or so).

And seriously $20 for distilled water??? - What a scammer.

I have been using distilled water for the longest time and my shrimps are still alive, except slow down breeding

Can’t you guys In Singapore buy an RO filter and make your own so it’s cheaper for you? :wink:

For the small amount of top off water that's required - you can just buy distilled water from grocery stores etc - it's just that one opae ula seller selling his "special water" for $20-30.

Yup , majority of us do buy RO filter or we just buy 12 carton of 1.5 litre distilled water that cost $5 singapore dollars and do our own mix ...both are cheap but like what is said its that one seller

The picture below is the 250ml that is $10 from a 2nd hand seller , this is for top up.
There is another one for filling in a new tank that is salt ready mix water , i havent talk about the price yet.

But i dont blame that shop seller Image maybe , he is smart in his business strategy.

Just hope new aquarium hobbyist do research before getting told to buy this and that

My shrimps dont even need any booster, vitamins nor formula water and they are booming, i use distilled water for top up, i feed spirulina powder daily and they snap it all up within an hr. As long as the water condition is right, dont mess with them and they will do what they need to do. :laugh:
