Where can I keep my Volcano Shrimp ? Is plastic or glass container better ?

You can keep your volcano shrimp (opae ula) in any plastic or glass container. 

Just do not use any metal container as it will rust and kill the shrimps.

You can DIY and cut an acrylic sheet to be used a a tank lid.

I prefer heavy, sturdy glass tank as it will not stain and you can scrub the tank easily without scratching it.

Remember to put a lid over the tank to prevent evaporation loss.

Water evaporate will cause a change in water salinity, thus kill the volcano shrimp (opae ula) slowly.
