Aquatic Arts 2 Live Freshwater Pom Pom Crabs | Real Living Nano Aquarium Fish Tank Pet | Betta/Danio / Rasbora / Guppy Compatible
(as of Jun 02,2022 01:38:14 UTC – Details)
We are super excited to be perhaps the only North American retailer to offer Pom Pom Crabs (Ptychognathus barbatus) DIY kit! *IMPORTANT: This pair of crabs is very small (most will be 1 inch or less at the time of purchase, but they can grow up to 1.5 to 1.75 inches), making them ideal for nano or miniature tanks. * In addition to feeding on particles that collect on fuzzy patches of hair on their claws, they feed on biofilm and will also eat high-quality dry foods or pellets that are rich in plant matter. We also occasionally feed them protein-rich frozen or fresh snacks such as freeze dried bloodworms. Their natural habitat is reportedly throughout the tropical and sub-tropical regions in Madagascar, Taiwan, and New Caledonia. No breeder has reported successful breeding in a home aquarium as of yet. Unlike most freshwater crabs, these are fully aquatic and can stay underwater indefinitely. However, we recommend keeping your water line low or keeping a hood on your aquarium, as they are occasional escape artists. They do best in tanks with plants (such as red ludwigia and other leaf stem plants) or submersible decorations that provide cover and places to hide. They can be kept with some peaceful fish species, such as the Danio, Galaxy Rasbora, Guppy, Tetra, and Endler. They can also be kept with most types of snail, including Olive Thorn and Horned Nerite Snails, Mystery Snails, Limpets, and Sulawesi Snails. They can typically live with dwarf shrimp, such as Sakura Red Cherry Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi), Ghost Shrimp, or Babaulti Shrimp, but there is a small chance that they may try to attack a slow or sick shrimp.CARE GUIDELINES:– Temperature: 68° – 78° F (20° – 25° C) – pH: 6.2 – 7.2 – KH: 1 – 5 dKH – Minimum tank size: 5 gallons – Average adult size: 1 inch (2.5 cm) or less – Average purchase size: 1/2 – 1 inch (1.3 – 2.5 cm)

The rare Freshwater Pom Pom Crab is named for its unique claws, which resemble pom poms or boxing gloves. Their round shells feature tan and black or brown colors, sometimes in striking designs.
These cute twin aquatic pets ship as .5 to 1 inch diameter young adults and will not exceed 1.75 inches in diameter, even when fully grown. The claws are fairly big in proportion to its body.
They are fully aquatic in their natural habitats, so they always stay under water and can be kept in fresh water home aquariums! They can also eat dry food rich in plant matter.
They do best in tanks with places to hideout, like plants (anubias, lily plant, etc.) and aquarium décor. They look great with island or jungle décor, such as a fake palm tree, shack, or hammock!
