Search for their facebook page (Aquascapes808) and look under their pictures. They used to hold Opae Ula Workshops and it looks to be geared towards young kids. So fake plants are very likely in their display tank.

The plants in the opae ula jar are plastic plants. Haven’t found any plants that works well in brackish water.

Yeah, if only it was a real plant. When researching freshwater shrimps, so many breeders use live plants and I envy them. I used to love planted tanks and I guess that desire mixes with my love of the opae ula. I have to keep reminding myself about where the opae ula come from and to be satisfied.
