Same, nothing exciting. Just co-existing with Opae Ula. I don’t really feed but I do throw in Crab Cuisine once in a while. When I get the chance I will get some brine shrimp to feed to check out. How you planning to redo? I think one large rock is good if you plan to catch the mother to separate the babies. Easier to lift one rock then many rocks.

@opae ula related cool.. you mixed them with opae ula. Do they chase after the opae ulas? Do our alphas feed on algae? Personally i have a small tank for them. But i felt its too small for them ( 2litre tank for 5 of them) Thinking if doing a 9litre tank for them with few big lava rocks. Previously one of them berried and i had a hard time trying to separate the mummy. But well it didn't worked out as one fine day she just dropped all her eggs. :cry:

Boy they seem so massive next to the Opaes. Like Schwarzenegger would next to me.

Yeah it would be interesting to know what they would do if they would not be fed! As far as I know they never have been seen preying on Opaes.

LOL, Arnie is massive. Not fair comparison in this tank since the opae ula are younger ones. Yeah, never saw them preying on Opae but highly likely larva though.

I have never seen any one breed them in captivity and have had success with a survival rate.
