    Here’s a cool new import from Thailand with text from the latest Aquarium Glaser newsletter:

    “Described in 1991, Limnopilos naiyanetri Chaung & Ng, has only just been discovered by the hobby. Crabs are found in pure freshwater in the roots of floating vegetation, ie. water hyacinth (Eichornia crassipes) and fine-leaved aquatic plants along the riparian zone (river banks). They have hairy bodies and appendages which collect mud and dirt and may function to trap food particles. They are not carnivorous, and behave like Caridina shrimps in their scavenging behaviors, where care and feeding are probably the same. Suitable for nano-tanks, and is the first crab species available which has attributes suitable for such. In such tanks they will stay closely associated with mosses and fine leaved-plants. Max size 1 cm. (Photo C.Lukhaup, Text K.Diehl).”
