Breeding, would like to start with emeral crabs?

Is it difficult to breed crabs? What process would I take in order to do this?

iv never heard of breeding crabs in home aquariums before iv heard of shrimp but not crabs and if you do you will probably have trouble feeding them

Why is it very difficult to breed and feed them?

Oh sorry. I thought they were scavenger crabs? I have 4 of them in my tank now and I don't know if I have bubble algae in there now?

they are scavenger crabs, will pick most anything off of rocks. SOME emerald crabs will eat bubble algae, but it is not their exclusive diet.
