_____________________________________________
Vampire crabs are one of the most beautiful crustaceans around - with their vibrant coloration and easy care, these crabs make beautiful pets for even the most unexperienced. Although they are very hardy and easy to care for, you should always do as much research as possible to make sure you can provide them with the perfect environment to thrive. 

Vampire crabs are very gentle, docile, and social animals, that can be kept in a community of several crabs of the same type. There are many different species and colors of vampire crabs available and all require the same care. They are semi-terrestrial which means the live both on land and water - when setting up a vampire crab tank, we suggest having 85% land to 15% water, but this can vary depending on the size of the enclosure.
In Indonesia, where they are native to, these crabs live in mossy, sometimes muddy, forest like, humid areas near streams or rivers, so you should mimic their natural habitat as much as possible when setting up their permanent home. Don't forget to provide them with enough hiding spots.
We recommend keeping no more than 6 crabs in a 10 gallon aquarium/enclosure.
A simple vampire crab enclosure set up would consist of:
1. Sand or very fine substrate;
2. Mosses and other plants to provide shelter;
3. Driftwood and rocks;
4. Good filtration;
Whether you set up a paludarium or a standard aquarium, make sure to always provide your crabs with an easy way to access land and water.
Vampire crabs are scavengers and will accept pretty much all foods.

Vampire Crabs eat a big variety of foods such as: 
  • Algae Wafers

Great communication with customer support as I did not order them originally with the heat pack and insulated package. They got back with me quickly and made it super easy. Crabs are alive, had them for a couple of weeks and they are active and awesome
