Acclimation time: 2 hours Arrival packaging Temp: 75.5 PH: 8.4-8.6 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 20 ppm Specific Gravity: 1.0225 GHolland posted a link to Live Aquaria's Diver's Den after sighting the availability of O. maya. This is the first time I have ever seen one offered and have wondered about its suitability for the aquarium. The adult size listed in Norman is out of range but I have seen other sizing that would be more plausable and I looked around a bit for more sizing information. Neal and I discussed what to do if it got too large and decided to give this one a shot (pushed a bit by the fact that we knew SueNami's time was up). My FedEx driver brought her down with a hand truck and I was worried that the 8" sizing was the mantle size and not general length as assumed.. It looked like we might have to go to plan B sooner than expeced! Once I got the box and bags opened, however, I had to hunt to find her and was delighted with her petite size. She was glued frozen to the edge of the bag and I could not see breathing but could see that her little eyes were open and bright. When I put the hydrometer in the bag to check the salt content, she came to life. At two points during her acclimation, she climbed up the bag. I had to stop filming the second time to chase her back into the water. You will unlikely find anyone who packs an animal the way Live Aquaria does. She came in a huge box with roughly two gallons of water, bagged in 6 (yes 6) individually sealed bags, cradled in lots of peanuts. She was shipped very late in the day and her water tested so well, acclimation was almost un necessary. I took 2 hours to acclimate her anyway. She did not seem overly stress so I took my time getting her prepared for the tank. The normal recommendation is not to feed new critters but I take exception to that rule. If an animal is not stressed when it is acclimating I prefer to feed in the acclimation bucket. Her water was excellent so I added a small fiddler. I thought she ignored it since she did not color and did not move from the upper section of the bucket wall. I exchanged some water and she slowly slid down (as she had been doing) to the bottom of the bucket. It took me 10 minutes to realize that I could no longer see the crab . She was ready to go into the tank but I let her eat before trying to coax her into the critter keeper. Normally, I would put the whole bag in the critter keeper but the bag was so large that I opted to try to coax her in and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get her fully contained. Once I put on the top though she started looking for a way out and octo arms investigated all the holes.
