I think these are not sold in singapore LFS. You will have to get them from overseas or online shops. The closest thing you can get in singapore is the rainbow crab. Both crabs have similar size, similar requirements, but the colour is quite different.

Those in y618 are vampire crabs if I'm not mistaken. Purple all round. Not just the claws.

I saw them 2 around 2 weeks ago. The last time I went, only 1 was left. That was a week ago. This week, not been there. They are probably closed for CNY anyway.

the only commonly imported land crab is the rainbow crab(cardisoma armatum) and several varients , Qian Hu used to import some different types one of which i think was the moon crab (Gecarcinus quadratus) and they also had a white version of that.

Thank you for the update. Doubt Y618 would have any left by the time they reopen after CNY, hopefully I might be able to chance on them at C328 which I frequent most. Cheers!

Those that i saw confirm are not vampire crabs. Vamp crabs were on the bottom level. But those purple ones are fully purple crabs. They were comm with white crayfish,orange/red crayfish and blue ones on the 2nd level.
