Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. Thanks so much for sending me this link :)

These are so neat. I'll be looking forward to updates )

How big are they, what tank are you keeping them in and have they been aggressive yet?

Yeah, I've been wondering the same thing. Are they those teeny tiny crabs?

You might be thinking of the Thai Micro Crabs. They're fully fresh water.

These are a different species we had a discussion on about a month ago. They're for sale on eBay. They are apparently a brackish water crab with adaptive freshwater capabilities.

I would say they are about 1 cm they have not been aggressive. They are in a tank with just snails so. The tank is a 10 gallon with lots of peacock moss. It was originally intended for Thai Micro Crabs but...

Hey, great! Thanks for this thread!

Ever since finding out this species is rapidly inhabiting The Baltic Ocean, I've been wanting to find and keep some.

Following along to see how they work for you.

A question: many crabs need/like emersing from water at times. Are you seeing any signs of this, or is it a true aquatic species, like most of the full marine crab species seem to be?

They mostly have been hanging out in the moss. I haven't had much time to watch them tho.
