    Wink Question on Vampire Crab...

    Hi,

    I'm planning to start a new tank to keep Vampire Crab...
    Thinking to use a 45x30x30cm or 60x30x30cm...
    Make it 50:50 dry and wet...

    Any specific water parameter?

    Soil or sand to use?

    How many pcs to keep in 45x30x30cm and 60x30x30cm tank?

    What type of light to use?

    What type of filter to use?

    Thinking to use ugf or canister...eheim 2211/2213

    What other type of species can keep together with it?
    Can I keep shrimp and fish like Tetra?

    What type of food should I use?
    I do have full line of BW and Mosura shrimp food...

    Can someone share some picture with me about the setup?

    Thanks

    About the filter I'm thinking to use the Exo Terra - Turtle Cliff With Terrarium Filter & Rock (Large) for my 60x30x30cm tank...
    What do you guys think?

    Hi,

    I just bought 5pcs of the vampire crab from a friend few days ago...

    Here's my tank spec -
    - 60x35x40cm tank with 50:50 ratio land and water
    - eheim 2215 with SubstratePro and 1 x Jaqno pre filter
    - used soil from my past crs tank.
    - 2 x kw 24pcs led light ( 1 on the land side and 1 on the water side )
    - 2 x Otto
    - 2 x zebra catfish
    - Staurogyne sp
    - Anubias Barteri Var Nana 'Petite'
    - Java Moss

    I currently feed them with Hikari frozen blood worms mix with Hikari frozen brain shrimp once a day...

    But I notice that they like blood worms more than brain shrimp coz they always finish the blood worms and left over the brain shrimp...

    Can I feed them shrimp food like Mosura Excel, Specialty Food, BW Color, Grow and Spinach?

    I saw from some hk forum say that the Vampire crab need some calcium to harden the shell so I mix some exo terra calcium powder with blood worms twice a week and Mosura Gravidas once a week for them to easy molting....( I don't know whether it's correct or not )

    Do anyone one know when the vampire crab going to molt?

    Thank You!
