These adorable tiny friends are Freshwater Pom Pom Crabs, they are omnivorous scavengers and sometimes an opportunistic hunter. In addition to eating food items that collect on the pom poms that grow on its claws, (not just a fashion statement) it feeds on algae and debris in the aquarium and will also readily accept high-quality dry foods that are rich in plant matter. (Talk about a fantastic and stylish clean up crew.)
Your little crustacean is and will always be tiny, growing to about 1.5 inches in diameter. We don't recommend keeping these fellows with shrimp, as they may feast on their friends. However, they are very peaceful and for the most part ignore their fellow tank mates (unless they are a shrimp).

The Freshwater Pom Pom Crab reportedly has pockets of population throughout many tropical and sub-tropical regions in Africa, Asia, and Australia. They inhabit both brackish and fully freshwater areas and it is suspected that this crab spawns in brackish water and move to freshwater after their larval stage. Unlike most “freshwater” crabs, this crab is truly fully aquatic. However, we do advise keeping your water line a couple of inches low or keeping a lid on your aquarium, as these crabs can make like Houdini.
