Thanks guys :) He's already heading back down...
Awwwwww tiny lil precious Devise! Maybe you should start a new tank with teeny peaceful friends
Well the E's have an adopter waiting for them, once they decide to stay up for longer than 5 minutes :lol: :) So there shouldn't be any more worries with him getting attacked again.

That's amazing! You must have done a really good job with him. I was rooting for the little guy. On another note....

What wonderful news :banana: ! We were all pulling for you both so I guess it does take a "village" of crabbers to help both the crab and crab-parent pull through these tough situations :) .
PPs are Big Enzo, Charles Paris and Mr Pinch

So happy he is up and getting back to normal! My attackee is getting gel limbs so should be going down soon. Thanks for the great info and outcome. It gives me hope!

I think my new E's are going into their own tank.
