NANFA-- brackish water
Wed, 23 Oct 2002 18:27:20 EDT

My question concerning brackish water has to with a marine aquarist that has
found that blue legged hermit crabs will live in freshwater. I know there is
one species of freshwater hermit crab in the same genus (Clibanarius). I
wanted to get a grip on what he was terming freshwater and brackish water.
His water is at 1.001 and is keeping blue legged hermits long term but
doesn't report any reproduction.
