My opae'ula are very healthy. They have been breeding a few time. Some have been lying on the rock. I have them near a lamp so they have enough light. none have died yet in my habitat. Merry Christmas Opae'ula!
My Opae'ula is very healthy and I have many Opae'ula in my tank. There about 21 opae'ula. I have a lamp next to my Opae'ula. There are two eggs at the bottom. Another one molted from it's shell.
I have 13 shrimp that are healthy. I fed them today with my dad. they're been very active for the past few days.
This is how to take care of a Opae`ula habitat. You can't put it in direct sunlight because they will die. You also don't want to put to much food or the water will be polluted. You should feed it very little or put it by light to create algae. Finally, when water evaporates just add some fresh water.
Today we put our Opae`ula in our habitat. We also made our covers for our habitat. we got our shrimp plus five more. I got six Opae`ula dollars and plus five is eleven. We made our cover by using sticky strips. We wrapped it around the bottom and gently put on our habitat. I wonder if I can keep doing this or two years.
Today we started our video and adding our plant. Our video is about how to make a Opae`ula habitat. We have many photos to put in our video like our picture of our steps. This video will have transitions, voice overs, and text. We also added a plant to our habitat. The plant will give more shelter and resting places.
Today we're going to put water, more gravel, and rocks. We're going to use a hydrometer to make our brackish water. Fresh water has a specific gravity of 1.000 and sea water has a specific gravity of 1.024 and we want it to be 1.006 to 1.008 even though the Opae`ula came in water that was 1.004. We're going to put rock in because it has decomposers and bacteria. We need these because the bacteria is food to the shrimp and the decomposers can decompose the shrimp if they die. We also added extra gravel because it had algae so they have food.
We prepared the gravel today. We first put our gravel in a bucket and filled it with water. Next, we swished the gravel and drained the water three times. We washed it three times to clean our gravel from the dust. Then, we used spoons to scoop up the gravel in both our cups. We scooped out five spoonfuls each cup. After, we we took a picture of our completed cup.
