We've already had our Opae`ula habitats for 3 months. Do you notice anything growing on the glass? Depending on the amount of light that your habitat receives, it may be algae. It first starts off as light brown patches and eventually turns green.
- How many hours of light does your habitat receive each day?
- What kind of light shines on it? Is it from a room light, lamp, sunlight etc.
- Do you have algae growing in your habitat? If so, what color is it?

Here's a picture that I just took from the habitat in the tech lab. What do you see on the opae? That's right, eggs! Come check it out when you have time. Also check out the Opae`ula Breeders page to find out which student also has a shrimp with eggs.
