    Hmm, I've warmed to them. I've been looking for some vampire crabs for months now and these seem like the easier option... I just can't find anything about them except for sales sites and then the info is mixed. :rolleyes:

    Send an email to the ebay seller, its Colin Dunlop and has had several items publish in PFK regarding bettas and clown loach spawnings. I've had a fair bit off of him, wild bettas, cpds and cherry shrimps plus more. They've all been quality.

    Don't tease with these things! How much are they? Would you consider shipping me a trio?

    Always like crabs, just be warner you will need a closed wood tank, otherwise they will end up on the floor and dried up!
    I have crabs in my Rio before and they escape via the back where the hoses come in. Love this tiny ones though! its making me think about buying them!! haha

    YEAH!

    I saw one 3 days ago, out of 6. On average I'd say I see one twice a week in my 30" tank.

    Thinking about getting some more though, they are pretty cool.

    The fact I see them less makes it nicer when I do see them.

    Im thinking of getting some for mmy 35l invert tank.
    Ive read that they do well with shrimps and snails so im going to trial them :)
    I think a tnak full of these (assuming they breed for me) and crs would look lovely :)

    I'll probably get some for my nano when I get it rescaped, I do really like the look of them. Crabs are fascinating.

    I should post up a thread asking for some vampire crabs and another on how to set up an aquaterrarium...

    Got them from ebay the first lot turned up dead due to being sent 1st class. Colin sorting it out and resent them on nextday.
