    hi guys, can any 1 help? currently i bought lik 20 shrimps from a local breeder, when i first transfer them into the tank they were very hyper. however, the following day i cant seem to find them anywhere at all. once in a while i see one popping up for a little bit. are they shy creatures? do they hid all the time? not sure if they are dead or alive.

    Yes, shrimps are shy creatures and tend to hide especially if your tank are fully planted or if there are fishes around. You may also like to check your water parameters just in case.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    If you are watching them at night, turn the lights off for an hour, with no ambience lights. Use a mini torch light to shine from a distance. I often use this method as my shrimps are usually in their hideout during the day.

    The other way to see them is during their feeding time. I usually dump the wafer stick, in a open space where I can see them. If you are too near the tank it may scare them away.

    I think that would be the cause. It might be that adding of food causing the ammonia to rise and killed them.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    Please get the necessary info regarding the breeder via PM or other methods, and please do not share your email openly unless you know the other party personally. This is to prevent unwanted attention from spambots that occasionally enter our forums. I do not wish to lock this thread over the sales issue, so I ask for your understanding. Thanks.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    @seexz, @Rutilans, mind the sms lingo usage.

    @tingfeng, think better not end up this thread lock cause of this. Asking to posting seller info good as making a sales thread, Which is breaking AQ rules.

    Would you guys mind to PM chansl instead? It would be a great waste to see a shrimp topic getting lock cause people want to change it to a sales thread by openly asking.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    Hi all.. im interested in keeping these shrimps.. i understand they are not completely freshwater.. and require special water parameters right?
    Care to share how do you prepare the water?
    I dont wanna be buying the ready bottles of water cos theyre pricey. The shop told me i can only use water from the bottles they sell for water changes..
    Kindly advice.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    Hi guys .... I am sorry, i lost the oversea seller's contact, i guess u guys must source it by yourself ... Do note that it is better to share the shipping cost as it is quite expensive to bear the risk by yourself ..

    The formula i use is 1/4 marine salt 3/4 distilled water ... To play safe, get a hydrometer ... Salinity level should be around 1.008 to 1.014 ... Top up with dansani water because they have higher ph ... hope it helps .

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    Hi guys. Finally after setting up the tank a second time, I managed to get berried in 2 mths. Yesterday, I noticed small little shrimplets in the tank.
    Any idea on what to feed them?
