Is it ok to house red and purple Vampire crabs together? I'm interested in living vicariously through you for a while, my friend. At some point, I'd like to try breeding these. I'm not set up for it atm though. I'm guessing that the different colors may be from different areas, and similar enough to breed together. I've not found out much about differences in care between colors though.

Red-clawed crabs do their best in a tank arranged just for them. A gallon aquarium, half full, makes a great crab vivarium. Sandy substrate works better than gravel.
