Hi!

Can i grow in 20-40 aquarium, can i put example some little crabs to same aquarium? Example caridina or neocaridina? How the heat? Is room temparature good?

I don't think an aquarium is an adequate environment for them. They really do best when outside, in full sunshine. I had pretty good success (until this year) growing a small colony in a 10 gallon tank, on the porch, with bog plants and U. gibba.

The bigger the environment, the better.

For the winter, you want to aim for something just above freezing. They will for turions. You can either put them in a fridge or a garage or an attic. I had mine in a tub of water, in an 80qt cooler, in the garage.
