         This concisely written 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" handbook contains a wealth of information in 24 pages and the most recent knowledge.  Unique Fuku-Bonsai Breeder Tanks are designed to celebrate and feature the Amazing Hawaiian Micro-Lobsters! (Halocaridina rubra) The booklet features 30 black and white photos and drawings and the cardstock color cover adds an additional 10 more color photos. These adorable long-life creatures are indigenous to Hawaii, require very little care, and reflect the beauty, nature, and spirit of Hawaii! 
 
         Unlike eco-systems that claim no feeding, these breeder tanks will produce happy, healthy, active creatures that will retain their size over time, retain their sociably endearing personality, and successfully reproduce! Our tanks are designed to utilize a canister light and Fuku-Bonsai Micro-Lobster Premium Breeding Food.
