Nice! What is your way of capturing the berried mom?
Why wouldn't the Opae Ula share his food? Because he was a little shellfish

They can “teleport” real quick in the blink of a eye. Earlier I used to removed all my tank decor and used 2 small nets to catch the mama. But lately I realized that as the berried alpha gets more advance in the pregnancy, they like to hide in my coral rock that has crevasses. I now slowly lift that coral rock with them clinging on it into the breeding tank. Once I do so they swim out and it’s easier to catch them there and place them in the smaller breeder box

Just a thoughtYup, I have experimented with real seawater too as I have a seafood supplier friend who gets his water from the sea to keep his live prawns and lobsters. The larvae still die as quickly, so I really think they are starving. I have tried 1.010, 1.014, 1.018, 1.020, 1.026 and 1.030 salinity. . All die in about a week.
