Welcome to SKFA.

I'd like to encourage you to write an article on them that we can pin up.

Please start a new topic if you are willing.

Agree with jayc, it would be very cool if you could do a detailed care and breeding article on these.

Posting a care guide I wrote up from my own years of experiences and trials. 

Also posting a care guide from my experience keeping a mud crab. As there was no online aquarium care info for them.

Very well. I still breed them. Been about 2 years going strong now since I figured out how to (took a while). Try to keep up the numbers as there's always people wanting to by, buy they grow so slowly.

Do anyone know if these are available in Taiwan, and can they be taken out of Taiwan to Hong Kong.

Just guessing, but I don't think so. They're relatively new to the hobby here in Australia, and usually they can't be found in stores (well I never have). Maybe try Thai Micro crabs, or pom pom crabs.

None of them are available in hong kong, that's why I suggest bringing them in taiwan, as I will be visiting taiwan.

Rare aqua is out of them for now. But I reckon he could, if it's not crazy expensive, or too dangerous for the crabs, or if there aren't any problems with regulations.

It is illegal to export majority of Australian fauna without correct certificates and permits, i only ship within Australia and anyone willing to export is foolish as they would be destroyed by border officials, also in case anyone was wondering i sell my 2 month old juvies for $25 each as they take a huge amount of time to grow

Does anyone know what is the law in taking the thai false spider crabs out of thailand, can I just carry it on the plane, not though the storage baggage.

I would think these are not endangered spieces, and the law isn't strict on these.

getting pass hong kong isn't a problem.

not sure. But you should ask whoever you buy it from in Thailand. They should know.

I'm just asking beforehand, but then again many shops can't be trusted with these information, I was intended to visit Bangkok, next year, If i see them for sale, I'll get some, so there isn't any particular shop.

If they had some in hong kong, there wouldn't be any problem.

Maybe they don’t have them there bc they’re illegal...? They seem to be quite popular everywhere else!

The only LEGAL crustacean import for Australia are Brine shrimp, Australia is extremely strict with their biosecurity so i would definitely not attempt to smuggle them into the country as if you're caught the fines are massive and you may face jail penalties as an exotics import/exporter.

Get me on that list! (please) March sounds great, likely wouldn't have been able to accommodate them until next year anyway so gives me time to set up the tank and get some shrimp breeding as well. Any recommendations on min tank size for 5 or so? (and your price for that many).

Cheers!!!

      Update for anyone interested.Rock was removed, Ph and TDS is down, over the last few days it’s crept down to around 190TDs after small water changes. Something that want happening with even larger changes before. PH seems to be down around 6.5. I hope it stays at that level, all inhabitants look to be doing well.

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon
