Thought id start a thread to post pics of my crab, crably! He was caught it fresh/ brackish creek. From what ive observed these crabs are fully aquatic, i do have some drift wood poking out of the water so he can get out if he wants to just incase. 

From a guess id say he is a varuna litterata as they are basicly the only freash water crab commonly found in brisbane and go to estuaries to breed then acording to my wild life of greater brisbane book.

Mmmm, prawn dinner at your place!

Buck, if you converted the tank and kept mub crabs instead, we can have prawn and mud crabs for dinner.

I'll bring the beer.

Why a jardini? I reckon barras and whitings would go better with mud crabs and prawns for a real seafood spread. :)

      Oh, I do have some people/ friends wanting to buy, but I can’t with a clear conscience sell/trade until I’m sure they are 100% healthy. Also, I need to rebuild the population first. I don’t mind any color babies. I know I’ll get a broad mix, but I don’t care. I’m not looking for a pure line, anyway.    I have no plans to change the treatment regimen at this point, aka add any new treatments.     As far as the Galaxy Rasboras, it won’t HURT to get some. Yours might act differently than mine. And if the population is growing and you have good hiding places, you should be ok. It doesn’t take long for the babies to be too big for them to consume.

      It sounds to all be going in the right direction, thankfully! You can address the colour bias at a later date, you may be able to sell some on when everything settles down? Some of us would be happy to get any babies of any colour, I hate this having to wait out winter, but at least we are nearing spring? I am having to resist the urge to get some dwarf rasboras to go in that tank??? If you haven't tried the pig treatment I would definitely only do that is a separate hospital tank trying 1 shrimp only to start. I would just carry on with the oregano oil for a while and see how that goes as it appears to be going well at the moment? I would even carry on with the oil treatment for a few weeks after the shrimps look recovered just to be a bit surer it doesn't return. Simon

      Ohhhhhh, ok. Paying for a premium account ASAP. I haven’t yet done the chemical(pig wormer) treatment as I’m scared of dosing anything into the tank but H202. No further loses, and everyone seems healthy. Two berried females( including the worst looking of the females, surprisingly), and lots of fresh moly’s going on. Babies are all still doing great too. I think I have around 15 currently. This is the first batch I’ve seen crystal blacks in. The ratio is definitely more heavily black crystals than I’d like..... oh well.    No more new infections to shrimp who didn’t already have the disease. Several have reverted 100% back to normal coloration, while other are improving, but as they were so far along it may just be taking longer to recover completely.    I’m considering making some of this Rephasy with added oregano oil. Adding oil in the same ratio as the diluted oregano oil, water mixture. Thoughts? Just another way to get them to eat the oil. They seem to be after added food more readily now.

      I still have CRS, red wine, panda, red bolts and black/red galaxy Pinto in the same tank, including 3 crabs, I added another 3, but the larger ones pulled all it's legs off and died. I'm considering getting a another tank 25L, but first a new table or stand for the tank.
