Re: 90% Humidity!!!!!

Re: The Shell Removal Experiment

Oh Lord I'm scared! Give me some time to mull this over, I have 9 crabs who I can no longer keep track of. I don't know who's who anymore besides the few who have really striking colors.

Re: Water bowls

I think several on here use plastic. Just make sure the crab can climb out of it. Usually craft mesh or river rocks or shells and branches or any combination would work.

Re: The Shell Removal Experiment

It could be in a way. It would be your choice. And I do realize some people do keep singletons. Yours would be more of a control or if you chose to remove shells you would be able to document intrest or lack there of easier.

Re: The Shell Removal Experiment

Re: The Shell Removal Experiment

Not sure if I'm going to participate yet, but just some advice to help keep this accurate and repeatable, maybe make a standard way for sizing crabs? I know there's some varied opinions on what constitutes what, so maybe stick to one measuring system. And yes, definitely get some control groups. Th...
