Since a few weeks I own my own colony of Opae Ula. They are now all settled and back to full color most of them are bright red, two of them are white/red, but I’ve one Opae Ula that is extreme, almost fluorescent, yellow!! I just want to share this with you. It’s a pity that there’s only one. Otherwise selective breeding could lead to a very nice color variation.

my phone camera really sucks but the eggs are actually like a light baby blue color, definitely not green...

Let’s hope they come to something and stay blue! Good luck.
