Pom Pom Crab

The freshwater Pom Pom Crab can handle fresh or backish water. These little crabs have hairy claws (hence the name pom pom) to catch food debris. The pom pom crab, like the African dwarf frog, is truly fully aquatic! Primarily scavenger, the crab is very peaceful but due to its size probably not suitable with larger aggressive fish.
