    Yes, currently the babies tank is doing fine, about 10+ babies made it to about 4mm carapace size. Will post pics next week.

    Re: My first vivarium

    Couple of pics as promised. The babies are doing fine and they have grown bigger. I estimate there are about 15-20 of them.





    Things are not doing so well for the adults in my other tanks tough. I have lost some due to my recent business trip.

    The babies have gotten bigger in size but their numbers have decreased. Last I counted less than 10 babies were alive. Others died due to moulting issues I assume or suspected internal fighting though I have not witnessed it.

    Maybe its time to transfer them into my main tank and let them grow up in there. Will take pics tomorrow.

    Re: My first vivarium

    Hi there did you just bought them? Putting two males in the same tank will result in fighting and usually the weaker one will perish.

    Re: My first vivarium

    Hi hi. Bought them last week. I've been watching them and so far no fighting. One like to stay on top while the other love staying at the bottom on the Christmas moss. 😊

    Yes keeping them away from each other helps. The money plants provide good foilage but do remove them once you see any signs of agression.

    Decided to transfer them to the main tank where I observed that previous hatchlings have grown twice the size as compared to being in their own isolated tank.
    Out of the 20+ hatchlings, only 6 remain.

    The main tank now houses 2 adults, 2 juveniles, and 6 babies.

    It is best to have 1 male to 2 or 3 females. I plan to use that ratio and start breeding them again. Do beware of the 2 males in your tank. I can forsee one of them getting killed soon. Lastly, different species dont interbreed. Get red females and purple females for the red and purple males respectively.

    Re: My first vivarium

    After taking a closer look at your purple crab, I think it might be a female. The claws are not as thick but then again it could be the camera angle.
    Any closer shots of the purple crab?

    Looks like a male to me.
    The most sure fire way is to check the underside of the crab.

    Keke he looks more like a pokeball to me. 😜 that's why I bought him. I've got a female one before and this little guy is different on the under. The female one died during molting. 😭
