Borneo 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. 

Borneo 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 borneo 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 borneo crab tank, we suggest having 75% water to 25% land, 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.
