Red mangrove crab, Pseudosesarma moeshi
The fascinating red mangrove crabs Pseudosesarma moeshi are very special animals. They are not aggressive, but interact with each other, even communicating via knocking signs. Their social behavior is extremely exciting to observe, and since crabs are character animals, you will soon see endearing idiosyncrasies among individuals. This crab is not exclusively nocturnal, but is easy to observe. After a while, you will notice that it almost completely loses its shyness and allows itself to be handed food with tweezers, for example. A generous water part is a must, but also on land you can often observe the animals. - Garnelio
Description

The red mangrove crab Pseudosesarma moeshi lives amphibious, so it needs both a land and a water part. Keeping it in an aquaterrarium is therefore a must. In the wild the Red Mangrove Crab Pseudosesarma moeshi is mainly found in the coastal mangrove forests of Southeast Asia. Here it lives in brackish water, but it can also be found in fresh water from time to time. The crab is especially common in Thailand, which is why it is often called the red Thai crab.

The red mangrove crab is mainly dark brown in color, only the claws are light or dark red with a lighter tip. The claws of the males are usually larger and also more intensely colored. Females have a larger, U-shaped abdominal flap, while that of males is V-shaped and much smaller. The male crabs grow up to 4 cm, the females usually reach a size of about 3-4 cm. The life expectancy of the red mangrove crab is about 3-4 years. Like many other mangrove crabs, the red mangrove crab communicates via knocking sounds. It is a very social and also peaceful species.

The Red Thai Crab can also be kept in an aquaterrarium in fresh water. However, an addition of salt is good for the animals. It is important that the crabs have both water and land areas available. They also need climbing aids to get from the water to the sitting areas. These mangrove crabs are very sociable and should always be kept with several conspecifics. They can easily be socialized with other similar sized mangrove crab species. It is also possible to socialize them with other animals such as robust dwarf shrimp or even fish in the aquatic section. Pseudosesarma moeshi are not very eager hunters, but it can happen from time to time that a fish is eaten. Snails are cracked very gladly.

For keeping a tank of at least 60 liters is recommended. There should be enough hiding places and retreats, which are very important especially during the moult. As substrate we recommend coco-based terrarium humus , which should be piled high enough for the animals to dig their short tunnels. Plants are eaten, but you can plant the aquaterrarium with hard Dracaena species, for example, or with Ficus species that grow quickly. However, you must expect that the crabs will not only eat the plants, but also dig them up. Beware of plants from the flower store, crabs are very sensitive to pesticides! So these plants should be kept outside the aquaterrarium for a long time, and before planting, the potting soil on the roots must be washed off completely. The air temperature in the aquaterrarium should be between 24 and 30°C, and the water temperature between 21 and 27°C. The pH and water hardness play only a minor role. The aquaterrarium must be absolutely tight, crabs are very good climbers, extremely curious and amazingly strong. Loose lids are pried open!

The Red Mangrove Crab is an omnivore, with a clear emphasis on vegetarian food. Varied food is very important. Everything from leaves, fruits and dead plant parts to insects and algae to stream fleas and granulated and tablet food is readily accepted. The crabs search for their food on land as well as in the water. Also brown leaves (a main food of the red Thai crab in nature), and roots, which can be gnawed off, should have a fixed place on the menu.

For reproduction, Pseudosesarma moeshi needs salt water. No later than 3-4 days after mating, the female carries the eggs to her abdominal valve, where she cleans and cares for them until the end of the gestation period. After about 3 weeks, the female then releases the larvae into the water. Depending on the age of the female, up to several hundred eggs are possible. The larvae need brackish to seawater to grow up. Breeding has already been successful, but it is very laborious.

Our food recommendation: Crabs in the wild tend to have a very varied diet. Most species are omnivores, and with the Natureholic Crab Feed Sticks we have taken this preference into account. They contain biologically balanced animal and vegetable components, which are also part of the natural food spectrum of omnivorous crabs in the field in such or such a similar way. The valuable ingredients of NatureHolic Crab Feed support the molting, digestion, growth and reproduction of your crabs in a completely natural way.

Our plant recommendation: For planting, use marsh plants, which are plants that are rooted in soil that is very wet or even submerged, but whose flowers and leaves are usually all or partially in the airspace and can be seen above the water surface. For example, marsh plants are usually found on and in lakes and streams, but also on and in garden ponds or other bodies of water that provide them with a wet substrate, but still leave room for flowers and leaves to show to the outside.

Expert Tip: We recommend NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid when keeping invertebrates. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your invertebrates. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.

Question: "Hallo, habe mir ein Aquaterrarium (180 x 70 x 100) angelegt mit grossem Wasserteil und Landteil. (ca. 60% Lanteil). Wie viele Exemplare würden sie empfehlen und welche Geschlechteraufteilung ? Im moment ist ja Laut webseite ja nur ein Weibchen lieferbar. Gruss Florian "

Hallo Florian, vielen Dank für deine Frage! In einem so großen Aquaterrarium kannst du auch eine große Gruppe von über 25 Tieren bedenkenlos pflegen.

Question: "Hallo kann ich beiden Mangrovenkrabben als grüne Pflanzen auch Katzengras ein sähen, da sind ja auch Vitamine drin wenn die es abknabbern ?"

Das kannst du machen. Sie werden voraussichtlich aber nur einen Teil davon knabbern.

Zufällig

Question: "Ich habe mir Kubanische Asseln gekauft, aber noch nicht ins aquaterrarium eingesetzt, da ich nachher gelesen habe, dass diese sich rasant vermehren. Wenn ich die Fütterung reduzieren, halten die Krabben die Bevölkerung in Schach oder fressen die dafür zu wenig? Wollte mir so 6 von den Krabben kaufen"

Das sollte so klappen.

Verrand und Tiere Top !

Ich habe die Krabben bestellt und habe erst ein paar negative Kritiken über Garnelio gehört hab aber habe trotzdem bestehlt da man ja viele Komische Sachen im Internet hört und war positiv überrascht Paket kam schnell an nicht mal 24 Stunden Später, Tiere am leben und unverletzt haben im Becken nicht gleich rumgeturnt aber nach jetzt nach 24 Stunden waren sie quick lebendig.
Noch einmal zusammen gefasst:
-Schnell
-Super Versand
-Gesunde Tiere (Soweit ich das beurteilen kann)
Fazit:
Jederzeit wieder :D
