Curious about those mini crabs :)


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

I always see these little crabs at my LFS. They are labeled as mini crabs. I've been contemplating a second tank of some sort and I'd like one that my husband will enjoy along with me, and he thinks the crabs are so cool. Of course, I know nothing about semi-aquatic crabs. Does anyone have any tips or good links for information? Any species suggestions or compatible tankmates I might consider? If you have experience raising these dudes, what would be the top thing you'd tell me to consider before starting out?

I have several hefty pieces of driftwood and considered using them to fashion a beach for the crabs.

Thanks in advance!!

A local guy who breeds and sells colorful shrimp also sells these mini crabs -

According to his website (which I am translating here), they can be kept with shrimp, are peaceful, like floating plants and catappa leaves, are most active 24-28 degress but tolerate down to 20, Ph 6-8 and they eat what shrimp eat - algae wafers, peas etc..

I don't have any personal experiences with them :)
