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!!!

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
    • jayc
      I am old school like that too. I prefer the classics patterns/colours. And I try very hard to not create further hybrids. I want my CRS to be CRS. My tigers to be tigers. etc...   @kms, all the more to support the site and sign up as a paid member.   @Cesar, what's the deal now with the new forum update? Has the photo size limits been changed, and if so what is the max for regular members?

      Thanks for that, it helps to know that it is probably going to be fine with time. I tried a different substrate this tie so that is all I can put it down too! I will revert to the JBL in future as this hasn't happened with that? I don't use any plant ferttilisers, and as above have never had to with the JBL substrate. The JBL is primarily a plant substrate and the shrimp king is primarily a shrimp one I guess, though they both seem to do the same buffering /softening etc? There will be a bit of a delay with breeding I expect as they don't mature until they are 6 months I believe? Again, thanks for that, it helps to know what someone else thinks and the tank has improved (hard to believe from the photos) going a bit greener and the stringy algae virtually now disappeared. Also a few new leaves on some plants etc. I just checked the water parameters and they are spot on! Simon

      The new update has reduce the photo size to 1.67MB for me, and all the photo taken with my phone is over. My pinto only cost less that GBP 4, as for the Red Wine, its 5 for GBP 10.20, any extra Red Wine will be GBP 2 if more than 5 is purchased.

      New tanks often go through a brown diatom phase and its just a waiting game before the diatoms naturally senesce.  Ride it out. The shrimp will certainly help clean it up and I'd wager that diatom rich biofilm is good nutrition.  You'll have shrimp breeding before you know it.  There is certainly a good complex variety of habitat for them to explore and exploit. Are you using any plant fertilisers yet?
