My name is Hartley and I live in the tropical country of Singapore.
This hobby of breeding Volcano Shrimp (aka Opae ula, Halocaridina rubra) began in August 31, 2004.
I tried to buy the shrimp from David, Fuku-Bonsai Cultural Center & Hawaii State Bonsai Repository, in Hawaii.
Due to export restriction, the sale did not happened.
I looked everywhere for this amazing shrimp but it was not available in my country.
In March 28, 2005, my brother Lee went to the US on a business trip.
I asked him to hand-carry a Fuku-Bonsai Micro-Loster BT-2 Educational Breeder Tank back to Singapore.
You can read the story here.
I made a lot of mistakes and killed many shrimps.
Finally, after four years of trials and errors, I manage to get the shrimp to breed.
Since then, I have captive bred thousands of volcano shrimp in my apartment successfully.
This website is dedicated to those Opae Ula shrimp hobbyists out there !
Happy breeding !
