Red Claw Crabs (scientifically known as Perisesarma Bidens) are unique little creatures that you can keep in your aquarium. While they may be shy and defensive, these crabs are full of character.
Originally, these crabs hail from bodies of water throughout Asia. They can be found in shallow rivers and estuaries that meet with the sea. Thus, their natural habitat is typically brackish.
Contrary to popular belief, Red Claw Crabs are not freshwater crustaceans. While they can survive in a purely freshwater tank, but they will not reach their full life expectancy unless they have some brackish water to live in.
Despite the ever-growing popularity of Red Claw Crabs, there are still a lot of misconceptions about these invertebrates. They are a unique creature to care for with some distinct needs that you have to address.
