A lot of my customers have been asking for crabs lately. We don't have any saltwater tanks in the store, so I wonder if anyone knows of any fresh or brackish water crabs? Aquatic would be best, but we can accomodate semi-aquatic without too much trouble. Fiddler crabs seem to be one of them, but I'm really not familiar with their care.

There are a few but the Sersama Bidens is the most popular... had one also but it kept escaping LOL

that is the only thing that came to mind.

it does note that they are found in brackish / freshwater but brackish is best for the longterm

Besides the Sesarma Bidens I mentioned there is also the Neosarmatium Meinerti

This thing requires high pH according to the page. That's perfect since lowering pH is futile around here. Now to see if any of my suppliers can get those in. Thanks.

I don't know if this help or not but there is crabs in lake Malawi, I just can't remember what they are called.
