Re: Maybe a stupid question???

Re: My poor thing dropped a limb! Help!

Re: Help! Surface Molt? Crab Exposed and I Need Help.

You want to make sure your tank conditions are set and correct before bringing home crabs, even on on a ride home..if it's a long ride they need to be kept warm. Took small containers wrapped up in towels, if it was cold I use a hand warmer on top of the lid. Next look at your stores crab tank. What...
