Anyone have Thai Micro Crabs?
 
I was trying to research them and couldn't really find a lot...

They're new, which means it's risky to even buy them... but money could be made if I could manage to breed them.

Anyone know anything besides the fact that they're from thailand, very small, and aquatic crabs?;)

Ok, was being a smart-a there. I know they are detritus feeders/scavengers and apparently have interesting behaviors... like they lock claws in a test of strength occasionally. (a real clash of the titans lol)
Anyone know anything else?

And maybe where I could find a few?

Googel info on Limnopilos naiyanetri you may find more info that way. From what I know so far its hard to raise/ have their young survive.
As for finding them I'd try aquabid but they still run pretty pricey (because of the breeding issues).

I imagine they are hard to breed, but I'm confident they would reproduce in the filterless planted tank I'm setting up. I'll try it now.
