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!!!

      Mine is a DIY Chiller, as you know a peltier has a hot side and cold side, for the cold side to stay cold, the hot side must be kept cold and with a heatsink and fan to cool it down. My DIY chiller has two sides and two water block. blue aluminum block with tube leading to the outlet of the canister filter and back to the tank to chill the tank water. copper block is to cool the hot side of the peltier, with copper block to the radiator/fan and a water pump looping. The problem is the tube from the water pump came off, apparently the plastic from the pump started to melt and the tube came off and the looping side had no water, so the copper water block stayed hot all the time with heat transferred to the cold side of the peltier also heating the water. since the copper takes time to cool down, most of the heat and the room hot temp had already heat the tank water to about 45 C.

      Try testing it again and see what you get or to confirm that the previous were right, especially the higher Ph reading is all I can recommend! If there is some explanation for the difference hopefully someone will reply and let you know, but I expect there won't actually be a difference if you do it again? Simon
    • jayc
      No that's not normal. But I don't know which tube in your loop had come off. Can you show us?   Yes that would have helped a bit, and at least give KMS more time to have found the issue by turning off the chiller. As I understand, kms has a peltier style chiller, and a tube of the pump had come off, which meant that hot water from the hot side of the peltier flowed back into the tank. So if the chiller was on the same temp controller, it would have turned off the chiller at around 26degC. The tank might have got warmer in his room, but it would have been at a much slower rate, and certainly would not have reached 45degC.

      I'm using the API master test kit with the dropper bottles. I was just very confused at how much more akaline the water was coming out of the filter compared to the water out in the open. I can't imagine how this fluctuating change in pH is going to be beneficial for my crs.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      What type of test are you doing strip or drip? I use drip tests and always ignore the first attempt as no matter how well I clean and keep the test set it is often way out of line. Las time first test was Ph8, second test Ph6. Sometimes first attempt looks ok so I have no idea what is going on????? If you just tried once it may be worth testing again? Simon
