Watermelon Crabs

    I keep thinking about making a crab habitat - look at these cuties! I wonder if anybody keeps them? Any pointers? I have read variably that they need fresh or brackish water. What tankmates can I keep them with? Does the water need to be cycled, like for fish?

    OK, the picture has been removed for copywrite issues, I hope that link is fine:

    I was hoping for pictures. :(
    I can't help much, I have a crayfish, but I don't do crabs.

    Still looking and laughing at the little Batman symbol in the center. My grandson would just die!

    Most likely brackish. No tank mates really. You would need a filter, or they would greatly appreciate it.
