Opae Ula - Hawaiian Red Super Shrimp - $4 (Downtown)

Super popular and unique present for Birthday or Christmas. This is the ultimate pet for you and your kids, perfect for NYC homes.

These super shrimp live between 20 to 25 years! They are perfect pets for kids as they require zero maintenance. Opae ula are endemic to Hawaii but have bred in our NYC home for the past 7 years.

Opae ula are zero maintenance. They do not require walks, cleaning up, equipment, filter, air pump, feeding, water change etc. Say goodbye to expensive pet sitting during your summer vacation.

You just feed till algae forms. Once algae forms, it's a fully self sustaining ecosystem. No further feeding is necessary. Either seal it up or periodically top up with NYC tap water.

How is this possible? American Museum of Natural History has an opae ula tank which has been sealed since 1999, check it out here: https://tumblr.amnh.org/post/142903683631/containing-bacteria-algae-and-tiny-shrimp-this

Check out actual video of our opae ula taken last year. The opae ula will come from this very tank, might even be the very same opae ula you see in the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuOcdrRDamY
