As with other crabs, it is imperative that the red clawed crab is given dry land to climb on and be able to breathe air. The Under Water Island series provided by Atlantis Under Water islands offer habitats that sit on the bottom of the aquarium and supply dry land and fresh air. The crabs will go in and out of the biosphere at the crabs’ leisure. The crab homes also have a feeder tube that allows a person to put shrimp pellets, tubiflex worms and even live crickets into the habitat from the top of the aquarium.

Lastly, it's also important to keep in mind that even very small crabs may feed on very small animals that you want to keep alive in your aquarium. This is of special importance to hobbyists that have systems set up with quality live rock and/or deep sand beds full of tiny organisms like worms and such, which can become the staple of choice for a juvenile predatory crab. If you have such a system, don't make the mistake of thinking that a small uninvited crab is nothing to worry about due to its size. Over time the damage to the populations of other like-size things can be serious. As the subject line of the email tells it:

- The biology of snails. Their advantages and disadvantages in an aquarium. How to keep them in check.To begin with, you will of course need a female Mangrove crab and her eggs. Female mangrove crabs often get eggs if they are kept in a holding aquarium with males. To successfully raise the frail larvae you will also need a separate rearing aquarium where conditions can be kept optimal and there are no predators present. The breading aquarium can be a regular aquarium with a capacity of at least 100 litres. Place a 2 cm thick layer of fine sand at the bottom. To make sure the aquarium is properly oxygenated and circulated equip it with air stones or similar. Take water and bogwood from the already running aquarium and use it to cycle the rearing aquarium. Also add about 1 tablespoon salt per 1 litre water. Recommended gravity of the water is 0.010 ppm. The gravity can be checked with a hydrometer. Calibrate the heather, connect the lights to a timer, place a hatchery for artemia in the aquarium and buy high quality fluid food. Be vigilant when doing these things. Small things like this might seem inconsequential, but providing the right temperature, nutrition and amount of light is crucial when raising Red Clayed Mangrove crab. Put a piece of cork or similar in the aquarium to provide the female Mangrove crab with an opportunity to climb out of the water.- Information about Amano shrimp

- The biology of snails. Their advantages and disadvantages in an aquarium. How to keep them in check.Fluid artemia is a good choice of food for the crab larvae when they are newly hatched and very small. Feeding 3-5 times a day is usually enough. Keep in mind that a heavy current in the aquarium makes it hard for the crab larvae to catch the artemia. Adjustments might have to be done during feeding. Remember to measure to levels of nitrate and nitrite regularly and keep them as low as possible. Avoid over-feeding. When the larvae grow bigger they will start hunting live artemia bred in the aquarium as well. You can then decrease the feeding.
