Picture of him just being awesome. Currently in a tank with a female scarlet badis and bumblee nerite. Apparently they're supposed to be blue but mine is brown. Maybe he'll change color once comfortable?

Really cool! The resin for the brown coloration is probably because he was fed a carnivorous diet. I've heard that if you base their diet mainly on meat, they will turn brown, but if you feed them mainly vegetables and greens they stay blue. I've experienced this with my own cray. I recommend Hikari Crab Cuisine, they love it and will spend hours eating it. Good luck!

Cool cool. I have Hikari algae wafers and crab cuisine so I guess I can expect him to turn blue over time. Thanks for the tip I didn't know that!
