  micro crab , microcrabs, Limnopilos naiyanetri, shrimp

Description: Limnopilos naiyanetri Chaung & Ng, has only just been discovered by the hobby. Crabs are found in pure freshwater in the roots of floating vegetation, ie. water hyacinth (Eichornia crassipes) and fine-leaved aquatic plants along the riparian zone (river banks). They have hairy bodies and appendages which collect mud and dirt and may function to trap food particles. They are not carnivorous, and behave like Caridina shrimps in their scavenging behaviors, where care and feeding are probably the same. Suitable for nano-tanks, and is the first crab species available which has attributes suitable for such. In such tanks they will stay closely associated with mosses and fine leaved-plants. Max size 1 cm. with mosses and fine leaved-plants. Max size 1 cm. These Crabs are perfect to keep with dwarf shrimp, they breed under the same conditions as Crystal Red/Black shrimp. I keep them in with my shrimp tanks, even the breeding tanks. Its real nice to have them in your tank as they are so so unusual. You will love having these in your tank, watching some of the amazing spaces they can cram themselves into.
