    I tried hard to find the info in articles but i couldnt. how long does an O. briarus live? can you get them as eggs? what water temp do they need? will they react well to people eg will they swim up to the side of the tank if they are awake? will a 55 work for them?

    thaks for filling in the missing pieces of the puzzle!

    O.briareus is sometimes available, usually from Florida, unless some of the people who had them last year were able to raise the hatchlings.

    They require a tropical temperature, around 78 degrees.

    They have long arms, could fit into a 55 but a 75 would be better.

    They can be friendly, but swimming over to the side of the tank, I don't know. I have seen them sit on the bottom and play with your fingers with their long arms.
