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. :)

      Playing " follow the leader" ? Or are they reenacting the Great Escape?

      I got a batch of blue Neos yesterday and after 90 minutes I went to check the drip bucket. And the water level had gotten higher than the end of the airline tubing. Didn't expect they would do this:

      I've kept various Caridina cf. cantonensis and recently tried a few C serrata for a new (well, set up in April but new to shrimp) tank. They were home bred little juveniles, and I figured I had several months before I would see berries. The largest ones are at about 1/2" or 1.27 cm now and multiple females are already berried. My bees need to be twice this size before they berry for me. Just found it interesting. Substrate of Flourite and a little ADA for scale. I'm guessing these fry are going to be tiny!

      Those are really great photos! I especially like the established tank (last  photo) and the beautiful shrimps. I'm sure the new tank will look just as fabulous once everything grows in! It is so easy to get carried away in this hobby, how many of us have said 'just one more tank'???? I like the idea of a separate REDs tank! I just got 17 mixed red Taiwan bee shrimps this morning, acclimating those while writing this? Simon

      Following the creation of Taiwan Bee Shrimp Tank Journal #1 (http://www.aquariumlife.com.au/showthread.php/68743-Taiwan-Bee-Shrimp-Tank-Journal), I have decided to set up another tank dedicated to Taiwan Bees. This has however ended my journey in breeding CPD's (http://www.aquariumlife.com.au/showthread.php/66596-Planted-CPD-Breding-Setup?highlight=) Equipment - PetWorx 40l tank as used in the CPD journal - Up Aqua Pro U LED Light 45cm - ADA Amazonia - Co2, yes at the moment but will significantly reduce to a very slow 24/7 bubble count once shrimp are in - Fluval C2 HOB Filter Plants - Staurogyne Repens - Buce - Dwarf Hairgrass - Mini Christmas Moss - Micro or Mini Java Fern which i might remove to make the tank look a little more minimal Shrimp - Will likely grab some culls from my other tank to see how they go with the very low co2 injection - If these go alright will attempt to line breed some really nice shadow pandas or get into wine reds Planting Stage l Approx 1 Week After Planting Potential Inhabitants All from this tank!
