Special features of the facility:
Several mangrove roots, which reach up to the water surface in order to support the climbing instinct.
In addition, fixed base parts should extend below the water surface rich as adult cancers like holding a side of the body from the water, so that the gills are in the water surface.

The caves are constructed without a base, to ensure easy cleaning.
In addition, can be better animal remains (eg after molting) or possibly even a dead animal removed.

When I see that a cancer is nearing molt, occurs spontaneously a change of water to assist in the exhausting procedure. I do not know why, but without this spontaneous water changes the process takes longer.

************************************************** ********

The Procambarus Clarkii is an absolute eating machine ... even the alder cones are after a certain soaking time at Aqua for feeding plan !!!

After molting, the remnants of the skin necessarily left in the tank, it contains important nutrients and is eaten by the crabs, what remains strengthens the worm ...

************************************************** *******
Further information:
The idea for the pool came through the sorting out of the remains of boxes of my other aquariums.
Filters, lights etc. were disposable too bad. Only the glass tank was purchased new.

The Clarkiis are beautiful animals to observe, with a little getting used to, they are almost tame finger !!!

Have a long busy, as you might set up a "species-appropriate" cancer pool and found very little idea myself.
Unfortunately the Clarkii is often maintained and enjoys a roommate in an aquarium its owner with the eating of fish and plants ...
One does the fish no great favor. I once started an attempt to keep two small Ancistren in cancer pool, also went well, but they have removed before they were divided by a straight cut ...
