These are the best pictures I could get. The large is on the smaller side of large. I've had him for 4 years. The smaller one I've had for about 2 years.

Edgewood, MD - 2 PPs

I have 1 large PP and 1 small PP up. Will come with all the shells I have, a few bricks of eco-earth, and some instant ocean.

I'm willing to drive up to 50 miles.

Re: What are your crabs up to?

I'm experimenting with different foods to see what the crabs like best. Sunday, they had carrot puree, dried shrimp, a bit of powdered calcium supplement and I tossed in half a cashew for the heck of it. The cashew was gone the next day but I wasn't sure what happened since only one of my crabs is r...

Re: No Sounds At All

I flipped on the overhead light in the room where the tank is once and got a very loud, disgruntled chirp from Comet, my most social/active crab. He basically yelled "Hey! Turn out the lights!". I flipped the light back off and laughed to myself for a good 5 minutes that I'd basically been told off ...

Re: Everyone is down

They have quite a few hiding places including a coconut hut, a coconut fiber wall and lots of greens to hide in. Hermie is my biggest and also my hider so I think it is a shyness thing rather than a predator thing. I think the new guy is probably down for a stress molt. The other new guy is the exac...

Re: Everyone is down

Neptune was back up as well this morning. Trident is still no where to be seen. I'm hoping he's just gone down for a molt. Hermie seems to have been up overnight but was busy digging himself back down this morning. I could only see the back of his shell.

Everyone is down

Over the weekend I added 2 new small guys to my tank. I already had 2 mediums but the one, Hermie, spends so much time burrowing that my other medium, Comet, seemed lonely. Comet is pretty much always up when not molting whereas Hermie is only up in the middle of the night. I've been checking on the...

Re: Is my crabitat good

What type/thickness of acrylic did you use? Is it flimsy at all? I see that it supports the lid but would it benefit from a wooden frame (for the corners)?
