The Red Mangrove Crab or Red Thai Crab is by far the most popular crab for aqua-terraria. They should be kept always in groups, for these crabs are social animals. A slight addition of salt (5-10 g/l) is very beneficial for the crabs, so the tank should be filled from start up with such a water. Red Mangrove Crabs are omnivorous and can be easily fed with all types of fishfood and many kinds of plant material (leaves, vegetables, fruits).
