Thai Micro Crab

The Thai Micro Crab looks like a tick. However these fully aquatic crabs are the most peaceful aquatic species that can be introduced into the nano tank. Actually you could put them in any size aquarium, but at a max size of 0.4 inches you might never see them again. In the wilds of Thailand micro crabs spend most of their time crawling along floating plant roots. The Thai micro crab is also called the micro spider crab. Tiny hairs cover their body and catch floating debris that becomes their food source. These little guys will never hurt anybody and have no defenses. But they really do look like ticks.
