But i felt its too small for them ( 2litre tank for 5 of them) Thinking if doing a 9litre tank for them with few big lava rocks. Previously one of them berried and i had a hard time trying to separate the mummy. But well it didn't worked out as one fine day she just dropped all her eggs.
Didn't see your post. They don't chase, it is more like get out of my way. I think they make a sound and it scares the opae ula away. Yes, I think they do feed on algae. 2 liters is half a gallon, yeah, seems small. You have a picture of your tank? You saw the dropped eggs?
Why wouldn't the Opae Ula share his food? Because he was a little shellfish
