Very Nice :)

Had 6 of these little critters a year back , very interesting indeed. How many of them do you have in there?

CPO's are a bit aggressive at times. Especially the female is in real trouble from the males after molting as that is what triggers the mating, In one incident all the legs on one side of my female CPO was ripped off. Had to seperate the poor thing for a whole 2 months till the legs grew back.

All the best keeping and raising them :)

I keep mine in a 20 gallon long and even then they end up killing one another! I have several 12 gallon tanks that I have maybe 2 or 3 in at any time, but still they will kill one another over territory! Hope you have given them enough hiding spaces so each can have their own space. These guys are just a great addition to a tank, I myself just LOVE them!

Successfully bred 2 batches of 15 babies, all but 4 didn't survive.
Hope you have the same luck!!
