Halloween Crab - any tips?

Recommended Posts

Picked up a sweet little Halloween crab yesterday. He's very shy and hasn't even tried to pinch me. Currently he's in a small tank with coir sub, cork bark and moss, a dish of fresh water and a smaller dish of salt water. I'll be hooking him up with a chunk of cuttlebone today, and I've been feeding him bits of strawberry and fish food flakes. He'll be getting some mango and veggies tonight once I swing by the store.

 

His current tank is pretty small (so is the crab so it's suitable for now), but I'm gonna be moving my desert beetles into a different tank, and he'll be getting their 20-gallon long, with deeper sub and more room to roam.

 

Does anyone have any care tips for Halloween crabs? I have a pretty good idea what I'm doing, I think, but advice from anyone who has successfully kept them would be appreciated.

 

His name is Jack Shellington, because Nightmare Before Christmas is awesome. :D
