I have mild arachnophobia ... that thing made me cringe and scroll back up
That being said, it sounds neat, although I can definitely see it being a tasty snack to any fish larger than a small rasbora.

I've been wanting to order from that site for some time but haven't had the cash to spare. I've been looking at those like crabs for a while now.

I'd be worried about crushing or sucking them during gravel vacuums.A severe lack of trichogaster.
Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

Here's a link to some pics, not a lot of info though. You could ask Darryl how he keeps his.

Thanks for the link toddnbecka. I won't be ordering them anytime soon because of the high shipping price.

There are a couple folks on the AC forum who sell them, I think Rachel (msjinkzd) recently got a shipment of them. Shipping is usually Priority Mail, much less expensive that way. From what I've gathered the micro crabs have requirements similar to CRS or cherry shrimp.
