Try Googling Geosesarma, you'll get more hits with information you're looking for. HTH
thank you, i couldn't even find anything even giving me a direction to look in.

i tried to giving them live crickets the other day, the had no intrested, however there is no dry land right now just rocks sticking out of the water. which i will be re-doing tues on my day off :-)

Also, Aquatic Delight, there are no stupid questions. It seems not a lot of people have kept these. This thread & others will have some good info soon --->

oh i know there isn't, but it gets a little stressful when theres little or no info on the web and no responses here.
