    Wow, that's interesting. Yes, would love to see your setup. I have 4 pieces now but miserably housed in those small awkward glass container. Pathetic, I must admit. Might decide to sell cheap2 if I can't establish a better home for them.

    Can I miserly ask for a bit of your magic breeding water..hehehe

    i not sure abt the ratio, i'm using a hydrometer given by a bro here to measure the salinity of the water. the range has got to be between 1.008 to 1.016 (source online), i set mine at 1.01

    i use only distilled water (NTUC). i do not do water change, only top up every week with distilled water.

    hope this helps =)

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    hi, just recently stumbled across this thread. I too have started to keep the little critters and am trying to replicate the ideal water parameters for them. sorry to hijack but i have an incoming newbie question:

    i'm just wondering with regards to the water, is there a specific range of KH and GH which we must pay attention to in order for the shrimps to thrive? or will the salinity and PH suffice?

    hope some one could advise.. TIA

    Hi Valiance, generally using the salt mix or the seawater method will already give appropriate KH and GH if the salinity and pH are correct. Cheers.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    good news for me. I finally saw my 1st berried shrimps. just like to share with everyone here. also, got 1 question to ask.

    do I still continue to feed my shrimps as usual? coz I scared my berried shrimp will go fight with the rest for the food and get injure.

    thanks.

    Re: Opae ula shrimp

    A link for those who want to find out more about Hawaiian Red Shrimps. They're also selliing true captive bred shrimps instead of the 'poached and claimed to be captive kind' that 85% of the world sells. http://www.petshrimp.com/hawaiianredshrimp.php

    These shrimp are larvae when newly hatched unlike the typical shrimp. Also, do note that these shrimps can live way past 15 years, so they're a long commitment pet. Try to buy them from a hobbyist as these critters are endangered, poached plus majority of their habitats (90%) is gone due to humans 'developing' the land.
