My opae`ula are doing great. I now have 12 of them. I continue to feed them 4 times a week, usually in the morning.. I also enjoy watching their life cycle. Most of them are active and swim around, but a few of them stay on the bottom and don't swim around much. I am excited to see if my opae`ula continue to multiply over the next month.
How I take care of my Opae`ula is feeding them with the right amount of food they need. But also I put them in the shade so I don't put them outside.I also count how many Opae`ula I have in my habitat. We also measured how salty the water is with a hydrometer. It was around 1.006 to 1.008. Also I might put it by the lamp because I want to grow algae. Thats how I take care of my opae`ula.
Today I took my Opae`ula home with me. Some of my shrimp are active but not all. Like some of them just lay by the bottom. I put my opae` ula by the lamp so I can grow algae on the glass for food. I have 9 opae`ula but some could be pregnant. I think most of them are a adult but they can be larva or Juvinival. I am looking ford to take care of them!!!
Today we put our shrimp in! But also we are looking forward to a great two years! So we have to earned 5 stickers to get a opae`ula buck and for everyone you get a opae`ula.I got 5. But there was a bonus for 5! More!So I got 10.thank you for the shrimp we really appreciate it.We are all looking forward to a great two years.
So far this week we are putting a place for them to rest on like fake plants.So what Mr.Leong was drying the rock.So the next day we could Hot glue the fake plant to the rock. Dont worried Mr.Leong did it.then we just have to add the shrimp and we are putting it in tomorrow.
Today we are preparing the water for our habitat! We are going to make brackish water. Well brackish water is a mixture of salt water and fresh water. So first we put some cinder in our habitat. Then we got a rock and put it in the habitat. Next we mixed sea salt and fresh water and we made brackish water. But then we had to check it with a Hydrometer because the water might be to slate.Lastly we put our water in our habitat. Then we put it in the sun.
Today we had to prepare the gravel for the Opae`ula . So first we put the gravel in the container. Then we had to put the gravel into a bucket and put water in it. Next we had to keep mixing and mixing. Also we pored out the water and we dried the gravel in the bucket. Lastly, we scoped the gravel into the containers and then we finished.
Thank you for get a lot of shrimp for us! we really appreciate it! and we are going to take really good care of it. Thank you for sending them all a way here from the big Island.I am looking ford to take them home with me! But first we have to make every thing.they are well takeing Thank you for this opportunity!
