Re: Help! I really need it.

My crabbies change sleeping spots a lot. So unless you think there is a real chance someone escaped, it should be ok.

Re: Help! I really need it.

Actually, do you have a lid? Or just plastic wrap on the top? Just curious. [emoji846]

Re: Help! I really need it.

A couple of methods I've had success with getting them to let go:

Gently blow on their body.
Tickle their legs.
Try dripping some water on him.

None of this will hurt them, but it may annoy him enough to let go.

I hope something works for you.

Re: Friendly bugs? Crabitat symbiosis?

Ya I've seen of that before. I dont think the cucumber benefits. If both dont benefit it's not a symbiote. If 1 benefits it's a parasitic relationship. The cucumber I'd imagine may not like the feel of the fish in it. Could cause quite discomfort and blockage. Compared to many parasitic relationshi...

How neat! I thought maybe she got them from Mary until I saw she was in Australia too.
