Camptandrium sp.

6. July 2007

July 2006: Few days ago we could import a new attractive crab species. It belongs to the genus Camptandrium, the species is yet not determined. They originate from India, where they were caught on the banks of the Ganges river in the proximity Calcuttas. There they live in estuaries and a therefore a salt additive to the aquarium water is reasonable. With approximately 1 cm length they attained full growth and so they represent the ideal inhabitant for the trendy mini aquariums. (Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
