5 Live Thai Micro Spider Crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetri) - 1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter - Fully Aquatic! by Aquatic Arts
Included is 5 Thai Micro Crabs (Limnopilos naiyanetr, aka "false spider crabs). These are tiny, fully aquatic crabs that so far have only been found in one specific river in Thailand. They are a very new and rare addition to the aquarium hobby. This is one of the very few types of crab that can live fully immersed in water at all times, so they are able to be kept in any freshwater aquarium. Due to their small size, these crabs pose little or no threat to most fish or other aquarium inhabitants; however, aggressive fish or animals may come after the micro crabs. They tend to do very well in tanks with dwarf shrimp. Thai Micro Crabs are translucent, which can make them difficult to see. They don't grow any larger than 1/2 inch in diameter, making them great for small tanks and nano tanks. They often act shy when first introduced to a new tank, but eventually will be found clinging to plants and decor and perching atop driftwood. They prefer to have plenty of hiding places, such as caves and plant cover. The way they eat is similar to Singapore Flower Shrimp or Bamboo Shrimp - they filter particles out of the water using tiny hairs on their claws. RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS: - PH level range: 6.5 to 8.0 - Temperature range: 72 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit - Water type: Soft to hard - Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Non-aggressive fish (such as Danios or Guppies), dwarf shrimp (such as Red Cherry Shrimp, Blue Velvet Shrimp, Amano Shrimp, etc.). Cichlids, crayfish, and other invertebrates and fish can be aggressive towards these crabs and should not be kept in the same tank. - Additional notes: Thai Micro Crabs need hiding places such as caves or plant cover (such as java moss, anubias barteri, green cabomba, etc.). They tend to make frequent escape attempts, so it is best to keep them in an aquarium with a cover.

3 Orange Giant Sulawesi Rabbit Snails (Tylomelania sp. - 1 to 3 inches) from Indonesia - VERY seldom available! by Aquatic Arts
These are Orange Giant Sulawesi Snails, one of the rarest snails in the aquarium hobby. Like the original Giant Sulawesi Snails, they come from Indonesia. These are very difficult to acquire in the United States, and I have never seen them in a local pet store. These snails' bodies are the color of liquid gold, and the shell is light brown to black and usually features a white crown. This is a very sharp-looking snail and sure to impress viewers, almost all of whom will have never seen one before. RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS: - PH level range: 7.8 to 8.5 - Temperature range: 76 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit - Water type: Soft to medium hard - Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of snails (Nerite snails, Mystery Snails, Golden Rabbit Snails, etc.), dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.). They can also be kept with non-aggressive fish. - Additional notes: These snails are large and need room to move, so it's a good idea to avoid dense vegetation or overcrowding in your aquarium. Sulawesi snails eat algae, plant matter, and invertebrate pellets, and they have also been known to munch on plants like Java Ferns. Snails are very sensitive to copper, so watch out for copper if you use tap water in your tank.
1 Live Vampire Shrimp (Atya gabonensi) - 1 to 2 inches - Grows to 6 inches or more! + Java Moss by Aquatic Arts
Includes one live Vampire Shrimp (Also known as Viper Shrimp and African Filter Shrimp), which will grow to a maximum of 5-6 inches as an adult. This is one of the largest invertebrates that we have to offer. They are totally non-aggressive and will live peacefully with all other aquatic creatures. Most come in a deep, silvery blue color or brown, but these have been known to change colors a few times throughout the year. It is important for these shrimp to have plant cover or other ways to hide during the molting process. Like dwarf shrimp, they eat algae and leftover fish food (as well as invertebrate food pellets.) RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS: - PH level range: 6.5 to 7.4 - Temperature range: 74 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit - Water type: Soft to hard - Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.). They can also be kept with any size of non-aggressive fish. - Additional notes: Relatively easy to care for - their care is similar to Singapore Flower Shrimp, as well as various dwarf shrimp species. Like dwarf shrimp, Vampire Shrimp prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants (such as java moss, willow hygro green cabomba, etc.). This is because the shrimp like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.
3 LARGE (1/2 to 2+ inch) Ivory White Mystery Snails - Algae-eaters by Aquatic Arts
These large and striking snails are great for adding some color and decoration to your aquarium, but they also serve some very useful purposes. They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean and the correct color. Mystery Snails are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. They are quite large as adults, growing 2"+ in size. NOTE: If you search on the Internet for mystery snails, many results will state that these are the same species as Apple Snails. These are NOT Apple Snails, though they do resemble them in shape. Apple Snails are considered an invasive species and are illegal to own in the United States. Our Mystery Snails do not grow to the tremendous size that Apple Snails do (often as big as an apple). RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS: - PH level range: 7.6 to 8.4 - Temperature range: 68 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit - Water type: Hard - Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types snails (Nerite snails, Mystery Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.), dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish. - Additional notes: With mystery snails, it's a good idea to make sure the water line in your aquarium isn't too high, as these snails tend to climb up to the water line to breathe air. Other than algae and biofilm, they also eat fish or invertebrate pellets and blanched vegetables such as zucchini, kale, spinach, or cucumber. Snails are very sensitive to copper, so watch out for copper if you use tap water in your tank.
1 Live Panther Crab (Parathelphusa pantherina) - 1-3 inch Juvenile - Fully Aquatic Crayfish Alternative! by Aquatic Arts
Included is one juvenile Panther Crab (Parathelphusa Panthernia) - a fully aquatic crab that originates in Indonesia. This is one of the very few types of crab that can live fully immersed in water at all times, so they are able to be kept in any freshwater aquarium. These crabs would make an excellent alternative to a crayfish because they are less aggressive. Additionally, they do not develop huge claws like fiddler crabs or some other types of crabs do. We ship these out as 2 to 3 inch juveniles, but they can grow up to 5 inches in diameter including their legs and claws (their bodies alone grow to about 3 inches in diameter). Panther crabs are known for their lovely amber-orange coloration and markings, as well as their lively personalities. They are very active and do not spend all of their time under rocks. Crabs are not too commonly seen in aquariums, so this crab is sure to be a true showpiece in yours! Panther Crabs are friendly with their own species and may be kept in groups together. They can live with most kinds of fish and other aquatic life, but they may go after dwarf shrimp or small snails (though this can be a good thing if the snails are unwanted!). Their claws stay fairly small, so only bottom-dwelling fish would run into trouble with them. RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS: - pH level range: 7.5 to 8.5 - Temperature range: 76 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit - Water type: Soft to hard - Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Fast-moving fish (such as danios or guppies). Large Cichlids can be aggressive towards crabs and should not be kept in the same tank. - Additional notes: Panther Crabs need hiding places such as caves or plant cover. They tend to make frequent escape attempts, so it is best to keep them in an aquarium with a cover. Panther crabs will eat invertebrate pellets, algae wafers, and bloodworms.
Created by professionals at Rainforest Aquarium LLC, the Shrimp Bubble Live Shrimp Ecosystem is a viable, semi-closed symbiotic ecosystem that self-sustains for an extended period of time. It contains live opae ula shrimp, live algae and microorganisms. All composing elements exist and interact with each other in an attractively designed, high quality clear glass bubble filled with filtered brackish water. No Frequent Water Changes, No Daily Feeding, No Water Filtration. Just provide your Shrimp Bubble with indirect natural or artificial light and enjoy observing its gradual development.How it works: The algae use light and carbon dioxide to produce glucose and oxygen. The oxygen is liberated into the water and is used by the shrimp for breathing. The shrimp feed on algae and microorganisms and release waste and carbon dioxide into the water. Microorganisms feed on shrimp's waste and brake it down into dissolved simple inorganic nutrients. The algae use the nutrients and the carbon dioxide for growth, thus closing the symbiotic cycle.The greatest benefit of the semi-closed Shrimp Bubble Ecosystem is that one is able to remove the top and, every once in awhile feed the shrimp for a boost of extra energy or intervene to maintain good water quality if the system goes off balance, thus increasing the chances of a long term success. One may also recharge the Shrimp Bubble ecosystem by simply buying a live shrimp replacement kit.The Shrimp Bubble Ecosystem Kit comes already assembled inside the clear glass bubble. You only need to transfer the shrimp from their transport container into the glass bubble. Includes: 3 + 1 extra Live Shrimp, Glass Bubble, Crafted Cork Top, Gravel, Dry Sea Fan Branch, Lava Rocks, Sea Shells, Live Algae, Filtered Brackish Water - enriched with microorganisms, Algae Scrubbing Magnets, Easy Shrimp Bubble Kit Assembly and Care Instructions.
10 Live Neon Yellow Shrimp (Neocaridina davidi - 1/2 to 1 Inch Long) by Aquatic Arts
Their brilliant yellow coloration draws the eye directly to these dynamic little shrimp and adds charm and cheer to any aquarium set-up. These shrimp look great, clean your tank, and are a blast to watch! They are very active and breed quickly. Each bag contains at least 10 neon yellow shrimp. We generally ship young adult shrimp that are already of breeding age, though you may also receive some juveniles. Neon yellow shrimp are fairly adaptable creatures that can live in almost any freshwater aquarium with the right water parameters. Younger shrimp may have not reached their full potential yet and will grow into a bright yellow color as long as they are comfortable in the tank. Lower intensity lighting and dark substrate also helps them achieve the most vibrant yellow. RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS: - pH level range: 6.0 to 8.0 - Temperature range: 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit - Water type: Soft to hard - Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, Indian Tiger shrimp, etc.), various types of snails (such as Nerite Snails, Mystery Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish. - Additional notes: Relatively easy to care for - similar to other dwarf shrimp species. Dwarf shrimp prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants (such as java moss, baby tears, green cabomba, etc). This is because dwarf shrimp like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.
A submersible heater is an intricate part of every aquarium setup. Temperature fluctuations may cause stress from your fish and coral. A minimum of 3-5 watts per gallon is recommended in keeping your aquarium at optimal temperature level. The use of multiple heaters in larger aquariums can allow even heat distribution.
