Yellow Witcher Crab (Lepidothelphusa sp. Yellow Witcher) is a new species to the hobby. This one is like living jewel, thanks to stunning appearance with very bright yellow, blue, red and black colours.

Another great benefit of these crabs is that they are communal and can be kept in groups without any significant issues. Recommended group size for 45x45x45 cm cube is two males and 3 females.

They are omnivorous although about 70% of their diet is vegetation (other 30% is mix of everything including detritus, small invertebrates etc).

Short list of examples (once per 2-3 days):

  • Slice of cucumber or banana or carrot
  • Dried Gammarus¬†
  • JBL Novopleco (or analogs from other manufacturers)
  • Dead crickets or roaches or fruit flies (for young animals)
  • Frozen cyclops/boodworms

Although Yellow Witcher Crab spend most of the time on the land, at least small water area with depth at least of 2 cm is a must. Crabs are coming to water for molting so this is life critical to provide them with it. For the land area you can use coco chips, coco coir, sphagnum or special soil like Habitat Jungle Bio Substrate  for land part.

As other crab species these crabs can regenerate lost limbs after one or two molts. The most important is to provide them with permanent source of calcium like cuttlefish/sepia bones, plain chalk or any similar material.

IMPORTANT INFO: Crabs coloration may vary, some of them can be brighter, some – more dull.
