Has anyone here kept Panther Crabs? I've seen them at my LFS before. They're very interesting; an orange body with black spots. They're supposedly one of the few true fully aquatic crabs available in the hobby.

I know they will eat fish. Other than that, I would imagine they are not hard to keep. A species only tank with 4 or 5 would be cool.

I once tried to keep one. I got him as a juvie, he was tiny. I had a small tank that had been cycled and didnt have any other animals in it, I put him in and he instantly hid. About once every other day he would come out of his hiding place and quickly dart to another hiding place. Aside from a few seconds each week, I never saw him unless I disturbed his hiding place just to make sure he was alive. He died after about 3 weeks of this. I assume my tank conditions didnt agree with him but really unfortunately he was not a great pet and I was happy to move on to something else that I could actually watch and enjoy. I was very dissapointed as he seemed to be a very interesting pet if he would have come out from hiding occasionally.
