What do you feed them with? Do you think they will be ok with shrimps?

Thanks!

They are in a tank by themselves, except for some red/pink ramhorns snails. I have been feeding them, Somewhatshockeds (Jake), veggie sticks, strong, and complete veggie.

Well as of tonight I did not see the crabs at all. I would assume they are just hiding. I put the moonlights on and after an hour or so I did see one of them. I put food in a glass dish hopefully they are able to climb in it to find the food and aren't afraid to do so.

I have a tank where it would be fun to include these, but I bet they would kill fish.

I'm waiting til you get them bred.

And for you to throw in some shrimp and see if they are aggressive.

Back to lurking.

Well between yesterday night and this morning I only saw a crab twice. Once when the lights were off last night and the moonlights were on. The other time was this morning when turning the lights back on. I would assume they are just hiding eating in the moss.

Crab Tank

So I only caught a glimpse of one crab this morning he was deep in peacock moss. The tank they are in is below.

I can see how they could disappear for a few days.

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

Hmm. The issue may be there are five in a 10 gal tank. I would bet three would be perfectly suited for a two gal, and five perfect for a three gal.
