    Default My Geosesarma sp "Vampire"

    Hello,

    I have Geosesarma sp Vampire for almost a year now (3 couples), and finally I found babies! I have seen 11 at the same time but I think there must be more.

    Thanks!

    Yes I have a tank only for them: 60 x 30 x 45 cm, 1/3 water 2/3 ground. Only the water is heated (27C), it heats the air in the tank. The water parameters don't matter because my crabs rarely go into the water, only for moulting. The hygrometry is about 75/80%.

    They eat JBL Nanocrabs and Aqua-Tropica AT Geosesarma-Vital.

    Thanks!

    The Geosesarma sp "Vampire" comes from South-East Asia but not Sulawesi as often stated.

    Thanks!

    Geosesarma sp "Vampire" don't breed in saltwater. There is no larval stage, they are born similar to adult.

    Mine rarely go into the water, only to moult. But they need a high hygrometry (75/80%).
