These look like they are going to be a great species to keep in my opinion. They are suitable to be kept with dwarf shrimp, are true freshwater, stay around 1cm or so, and can be bred in a freshwater tank.

I should be receiving quite a few of these, hopefully as early as later next month. Once they arrive i'll post some pics.

Look forward to that very much! May I ask where you are ordering them from?

I've been looking at them too, but at the moment I don't think I can justify spending so much on getting just a few little crabs under 1cm sent from Germany...imagine if they never survived the journey Shocked .

I havent decided yet, maybe from Germany, but also maybe from an actual supplier of them (in Asia) that actually offers faster shipping, and guarantee's live arrival, or they will reship them, they would be a little more expensive from there though.

I'll be receiving 13 of these next week, from within the UK for cheaper than it would of been to get them elsewhere. I'll try to get some pics after they arrive, but it may not be possible due to their size.

They hide a lot, but do seem more likely to be active at night.

I got my ones from a seller on ebay, the price worked out as £5.80 each plus postage. I dont know of any care sheets yet, as these are fairly new in captivity. Theres a thread about them on this German forum though with lots of info,

http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://www.panzerwelten.de/forum/showthread.php%3Ftid%3D811&ei=oJcBSoX_G5SsjAf4r5n9Bg&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=3&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dpanzerwelten%2Blimnopilos%26hl%3Den

The young are free swimming zoea, so would probably not be safe with anything other than snails. Im keeping my ones with a horned nerite snail.
