View Full Version : Recommendations: Plants for Red Clawed Crabs in Brackish Tank

05-07-2011, 01:36 AM
I need some help trying to find the correct plants for my little guys. My tank is not completely filled to the top (5.5 gallons) and I don't want my little guys overwhelmed.

I also want something that will withstand wear and tear from the crabs.

try a banana plant or water lettuce.

is it freshwater or brackish?

I need something that will withstand brackish water conditions.

Thanks :22:

I know it's an old thread, but in case, sb is looking for an answer, plants that can be put in brackish water are moss balls and Java Fern. Crabs, if well fed, will leave Java Fern alone, although, they will most probably munch on the moss ball. Mine did initially, but after a couple of months they do not bother it at all.
