Crustacean/invertebrate thread

Are there any people here keeping crabs?
I had 7 tanks in my best time but don't have them anymore. I want to restart this year.
If theres anyone who could tell me where to get Pseudosesarma bocourti this would be helpful.

Guys I need your expertise.

>went on vacation in Galveston
>found a smallish conch shell
>take said shell for collection, halfway home I see it has a crab inside when it emerges
>take it home, purchase some saltwater treatment and crab food, use old fish tank and place a small container for water inside while I get my supplies for transferred the tank to a crab habitat
>look up the crab and determine it is a thinstripe hermit crab

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clibanarius_vittatus

>crab initially hides and avoids me
>crab doesn't eat crab food
>one day come home to find the crab lethargic, outside it's shell with a ton of eggs in (her!) shell

What should I do? Are the eggs fertilized already? Will she die? What food can I give her?
>>
>>2115635
No idea about the eggs but the crab needs a full saltwater tank.
>>
>>2115635
Bump, someone please help me save this crab.
>>
>>2116162
someone already did.

do you have a saltwater tank running?
no?
then you're not going to save that crab.
>>
>>2115635
>What should I do?
You know what to do.
>>
>>2116163
I guess you're right. I feel pretty shitty I hate killing animals. It isn't reacting now and the small water container is murky, I think it died. Thanks for the reply though.

Do you have any pictures of your entire tanks? They look very nice.
>>
>>2115635
Nothing. They usually never eat when they are about to release their eggs. Yes they are fertilized but those Zoea larvae will need salt water to develop.

This is a German overview about breeding crabs/crustaceans with marine development.

Not sure if you get it in English but use Google translate. Interesting though, I want to raise my own Pseudosesarma bocourti somewhen.
