Congrats on your new crabs! I'm glad you're providing them with proper conditions, they're tough little couple. Hopefully the one with the missing limbs molts and recovers soon

Crushing up food

I recently bought fluker's brand freeze dried mealworms and crickets and crushed them up using a smooth rock and a tupperware. Is there a faster way to crush up these bugs other than using a blender?

First successful molt!

Slowbro just came up after his first molt! His big pincher is back, he has beautiful black nails, and one side of him much hairier than the other :lol: He ate every single bit of food I had in my ISO and he's so much more active now!
