Today we finished our Opae'Ula habitat. In order to finish it we had to add our shrimp, and finishing the top. First we put our shrimp in. We put put our shrimp in with a small net. I have 9 Opae'Ula.
Today we prepared water for our Opae 'ula habitat. First we put about half an inch of bacteria in the habitat. Second we put our rock in the glass vase. Third we poured water into a bucket to get mixed. Fourth we mixed the water with salt to make salt water. Fifth we used the hydrometer to measure the water. Sixth we dumped the water back into the vase. Seventh we have completed the water pouring.
Today we prepared the gravel for the Opae 'ula habitat. First we poured gravel into the glass vase. Second we washed the gravel with water. Third we mixed up the gravel with the water to take of all the dust from the gravel. Fourth we dumped out the water from the gravel. Fifth we took the gravel than put it into the the glass vase. Finally we have finished making the gravel.
Today I made my first observation about the Opae 'ula and I figured out that they like to eat small portions of food. The shrimp eat Spuralina. These shrimp are from the island of Hawaii. The Opae 'ula are only half an inch. These shrimp like to hang around rocks. Also when they eat they eat upside down. When people are around they stick on rock and when there not around they come out.
