    You are unable to upload photos to AQ? If yes, use a photo sharing site like photobucket and use the links to post the images here.

    Hmm I was going to transfer my shrimps to the new container.. But after putting in sand, shells, marimo ball.. Water turned bit cloudy.. Thought it might be dirty due to the marimo ball..

    Waited till this morning and Still the same.. Can I just transfer the shrimps or must wait till water to be clear? And how do I do it?

    Anyone here pls advise..

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    Cloudy is usually from the sand, if not a bacterial bloom. Can you take a picture of the container? Dirt on a Marimo ball usually settles after awhile, especially if you rinsed the ball beforehand. If it is dirt from the sand, you can use a small powerhead packed with filter wool or run the water through several fine filter wool pads. Helps to reduce the cloudiness.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    Personally, I believe it to be a case of bacterial bloom, as I mentioned to you earlier. Changing to water that has been prepared the same way and not been aged sufficiently will simply mean you will either encounter the same bacterial bloom or have clean looking water that isn't actually clean.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    I bought a few of these shrimps from CRS haven. Did a google search and found a supplier who can ship to SGP. Price is pretty cheap but once you import them in, the price goes up tremendously due to shipping and DOAs.

    However, he recommended a buyer in Singapore who imports for personal keep and was in contact with him. His prices are $7/pc and for orders above 10 it is $6/pc.

    You can email him at [email protected] or 96489079.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    Then you can feed them via the cap and change water with a small air tube as a mini siphon. This will be sufficient for the time being as your actual Opae Ula tank is being cycled. They are found in rocky pools, so a rock scape with extensive use of lava rock will be nice for these little shrimps. This pic in the link below shows an Opae Ula foraging among lava rocks:

    Thank you very much Sateman... Recently got cheated by my previous seller. Just emailed him yesterday, hope it was a misunderstanding though.
