其實在很早的時候, 一些在外國的蟹友已經說出過有關業者時常說出有新品種的意見, 這正是和我所想的一樣.

I'm kind of disappointed with the response to this. This is why online crab shops rub me the wrong way. How come everyone who posted so far was mostly interested in buying the crab, and saying how much they like to buy crabs?

Before we go on a shopping spree, I think we need to talk about the fact that this is a "new" species that they just named themselves. They have no information on it at all, except a sales pitch that it is friendly blah blah blah. Of course we don't want a crab that is grumpy all the time.  :roll: What is different about this species? Is this really a new species, or has it been around forever, and is just simply new to the commercial world? It's very sad that the first time we hear of such a species is in an online store! A new species is huge! But how unprofessional have things gotten when a new species is introduced to us with a price tag right next to the name?

I've been thinking the same thing, but I didn't want to start anything. I have to question selling a "new species" when it has NEVER been mentioned anywhere else. The other species we keep have been studied and documented as separate species. Without dissecting one to determine that it is truly different from the "main" species, or even doing DNA sequencing to see what if anything is different, how can a person make a claim of a new species? 
It's probably just a color variant - not a separate species. I'm sure there are little pockets of hermits all over the world that look different to the rest of the population due to special diets alone - crabs that eat nothing but coconut because it's all that's available are going to look very different to crabs that have a very varied diet. We've seen that in our own tanks!


在我看來, 這所謂新品種只是一種深色糸的灰白陸寄居蟹來.
