They are just gorgeous, and your pictures are great! I really love the first one and fourth ones in the first post, and the second and third ones in the second post. I wish I could find a couple of crabbies like those, very cool.

Tony they do resemble Es.
Of all the species and many beautiful colors they all come in, I really have to say these are my new favorites. I don't know what it is but they are very striking and unodinary. Really something special. I hope to one day be able to own 1 or a pair! Probably impossible but it would be an honor.

They're sunset violas, right? (I might have the sciency name wrong, I'm not sure)
Check out mine :D
This is Moose, hes skinny looking because hes still so tiny I suspect, i'm hoping he'll bulk up when he molts :)

I got a huge streak of luck and found him (plus two blues and a straw) at a pet store! A pet store.. I can hardly believe that :lol:
Just thought I'd share him with you since you're sharing your gorgeous little guys with us :D

You can see that the eyestalks and eye shapes of the crabs in OPs pictures are different than violas. So I think there is a difference between sunset violas and this possible new species. Also, sunset violas tend to only keep their striped coloring when young, I believe. : )

They are like ruggies. They are also called sunrise because of yellow and red colors. Rocky you have a color variation of a viola. These are either a species on their own or a color variation of the ruggie. Everybody has mixed opinions on that but in other countries like Germany they consider them to be a different species.
