Breeding Thai micro crabs?

Hi I'm new to keeping micro crabs and I was wondering how to breed them.

Yesterday I added six micro crabs and a dwarf crayfish to my 10 gallon tank.

My tank is heavily planted and has a thriving population of cherry shrimp and some ghost shrimp. As soon as I added them they started climbing on the underside of my duckweed and limnobium and eating snails and algae.

But six of them isn't many even in a ten gallon tank, and I don't want to have to keep buying them. Is there any way of breeding them? Or do you just leave them alone like shrimp?

I don't think they've been successfully bred by hobbyist yet.

If you manage to breed them you'd make a nice penny.

Oh cool I just looked these up never knew about them before. They remind me of my pom pom crab I use to have in a nano reef.
