Its all about providing them caves
Temperature in the lower 70s
Light humidity, with a water feature.
I like to provide more dry area in the tank and more wet area.
I provide plenty of live food in the form of crickets and superworms.
I provide crab pellets and take them out of tank after 6-7 hours.
Substrate I use common cocofiber, they will burrow into it.
I just got a batch of 50 in, I had some dead on arrival as per usual, but once they chill out in the tank they will be fine. The real hope is to get a mix of male/female and harvest baby crabs. Right now I have red devils which are showing great red color and common yellow/purples.
They really do require dry and wet areas in the tank.
