A forum for discussing everything about the Supershrimp (Halocaridina rubra, Opae ula).

I wanted to share with the group my latest Opae tank, which I set up in a 5000ml / ~1.3 gallon laboratory reactor. This is my 7th tank and smallest I’ve constructed to date (my others range from 3 to 11 gallons). This one was established using algae, snails and larval-stage Opae from my other tanks, so it’s 100% homegrown. Here is the setup in stages over the past month and its current state. More pics to follow as it matures.
Very cool! I have a "thing" for glass spheres, as you might be able to see from one of my two tanks. (I also keep a marimo in a jar with a spherical cork lid next to it.) I had to re-do this tank, so it has just started cycling. No shrimp live in there yet. It's five gallons.
