Thai micro crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetri)

Anyone keeping these little guys. I got a small group the other day and so far they are doing great. I'm keeping them with dwarf shrimp and snails. They seem pretty shy. Any experience with breeding/feeding etc?

Neat. Can you post a pic or link to a pic? Where do you buy these in the US? Any on Ebay?

Larvae in an aquarium. From what I've read they are carnivorous. May help if they get supplemental feedings of some live food...

I'v seen that video here(post #29): http://www.crustaforum.com/board/sho...?t=1153&page=3
That guy claimed that he had many larvae, but couldn't raise them..they die after 3 days, i heard the max was 9 days from other members..
is there any info on raising the larvae to adulthood?
