I got them through the adoption and they were perfect for the vine- sorry I don't know where they originate from. :(

No problem! I'm sure I can find something that'll work.

Oh, and I forgot to say I love your tank! My crabs are jealous ;)

I just received an email from the lady who is adopting out her two exotics to me... And it looks like I'm getting 3.... Not 2... Oh my goodness I'm excited and terrified!!! I will have 7 PPs (small-medium) plus her two violas and one indo!! I feel a little scared that my tank is going to get too crowded!! It's a 58gal with about 9" of substrate. Someone please tell me it's probably fine! My plan (newly formulated lol) is that when I purchase my own house next year that I will be able to set up a bigger tank and not have this worry! And I won't b afraid for them all to grow!!

If you have a substantial second level, I would say that 10 crabs would not be too much. From what I've heard, they're not too large either. Just make sure to spoil them :)
When you've been crabbing for so long, you don't even know how many crabs you have now...
