Description +

Endemic to the Hawaiian islands, these Opae ula “Red Shrimp” terrariums will keep you entertained for hours! I've spent months researching, sourcing, and hand-crafting these mini ecosystems to bring them from my home of Hawai'i to the "mainland." These shrimp are extremely low maintenance and live off of the algae and bacteria that naturally build up on the floor bed; they have also been known to live up to 20 years!

Please note: You’ll need to assemble the terrarium upon receiving your package. Assembly instructions are included, but if you need assistance please reach out via our Contact Us page!

Care Instructions:

Very little maintenance needed. Keep in bright indirect light or near a window sill. Shrimp thrive in temperatures between 65-85 degrees. Very sensitive to movement and loud noises, would recommend not keeping it in your bathroom or kitchen. 

Water is a special proprietary mixture and adding tap water will cause harm and/or death to Shrimp. If you need to add water please use DISTILLED WATER only to top off.

If your vessel starts to accumulate algae, it’s okay! Opae ula thrive on algae and eat it for nutrients. If you believe there’s too much algae, simply use a Q-tip and gently wipe the sides of the walls.

    Fun Low Maintenance Addition to the Home
    I love my little Hawaiian Opae Shrimp Terrarium! It’s so cute and very low maintenance. It’s fun to watch the little shrimp swim around, and the glass and shell accents are a nice touch. Great communication and delivery service from the seller. I am also enjoying the sample of The Balm that she included in my order! Thank you Ellise!

    To keep the shrimpies happy, delivery was made in person. They seem to be very happy and I’m pleased with the purchase. Thanks!
