I was really put off by this crab too, 1077. Again, hard and alkaline is key.

Got him from the store I work at :P I can check where we import it from to see if they can get some to you :)

Yea, water here is hard poop to begin with so achieving that is easy..
Put off in good way? :P

Seems I'm somewhere in the balance between to hard to ruin CT rays and to soft for snails and crabs to lose shell power. (to bad I need to filter my tap water because of industrial amounts of Limescale in it...)

Put off as a crustacean fan, this thing being fine in freshwater goes against everything I know. :p
There are really fine lines with a lot of species, and crustaceans in particular, are really blurry lines in the hobby as to what they need.
Anyways, watch from trying to crawl out and away. He will appreciate a bit more land access than just the filter if you can figure something out.

The other side of the aquarium has a dense pinetree like surface plants forgot its name(looks like a floor on the top of the aquarium made of pines), my gf's crabs hangs there alot.(she has the same thing in her aquarium) You can see the edge of one of the plant's strings.. in picture no2
I try to keep my aquariums heavy planted with stuff that go to the water surface or atleast 2/3..(it used to be tons of tall grass there and a big bush.. but it died on me :P 2 weeks ago)

Or should I really make a floor floor for him to stand on? Because I'm planning to do a "tree top city" in the 30g with lots of bridges and it will go up the surface..(planned for other crabs and the girls tho..)

As long as he has somewhere to sit on land he should be fine. :)
