I have small crabs in the aquarium
 
Crabs are a very curious animals and beautiful, but even more interesting is to have an aquarium and have no fish, but crabs. It's a little strange, if you say you have an aquarium with tropical fish nobody says anything, but if you say you have with small crabs things change. Whoever does not know is how he does not see, curiosity is a great virtue that we must encourage and hope that this is why you are reading these lines.

Crabs of the genus Cambarellus, originating in Mexico are small crustaceans very nice that we can keep in our aquariums, with the advantage of his great strength and power, so varied that they eat everything, all than fall.

At this point, if you already know that you think in
Cambarellus patzcuarensis Orange, a very selected aquarium and a spectacular orange.

The truth is that we have it easy, increasingly, these little crabs are making a small hole in the aquarium hobbyists. We keep with temperature ranges between 10 º C and 30 º C, with a pH between 6.5 and 8.5, are readily reproducible, although some of them somewhat aggressive among the males of their species, with many hiding places with pieces of broken ceramic, tubes and plants, we keep in aquariums relatively small, from about 20 litres.

How are small? such as the tiny are about 2.5 to 3.5 cm in the adult, a miniature jewel that we should not miss the opportunity to see and enjoy in our aquariums.
In conclusion: Good luck with them!
