We are going to take home our Opae`ula so today we learned on how to take care of them. Our teacher, Mr. Leong, gave us a booklet on the basic info and how to take care of them. We learned that your Opae`ula habitat is better in the shade, you want to put only a tip of of a toothpick of spirulina for them to feed on, the maximum length of an Opae`ula is an inch, the Opae`ula need oxygenate so keep a 1/4 from the cap to the water, the Opae`ula start at egg and did you know that the females keep the eggs on their swimmerets ( a body part ) but, they are never seen with their eggs in the wild. The feeding schedule is everyday or at the least, twice a week. At the larva stage for the first two weeks they just bob or float around, when they hit something they twitch and then keep floating.
