i have a new tank set up and its perfect the only thing i cant seem to get a strait answer out of is the lighting? i have found sources that say sunlight is harmful to the vampire crab and others saying they should have a uv light, so im not sure if its the UV radiation of sunlight that is bad for them or the acrual light itself, please help!

I don’t think they need UV light, never heard that before and most vampire crab tanks I see don’t have them.

Everything I read said that they adapt to lighting. Do you have live plants? If so they will adapt to the needed light. (I think)
