I always find these two together. Tamatoa reminds me of a mom always with her child. Just guarding Squirt as he napsImage

I wish I had a picture of them eating together! Tamatoa hogs the bowl but leaves space for Squirt to climb in and get some himself. Since she's so big the other crabs have to wait for their turn.

These two fell asleep like a yin yang

And these two have been getting along oddly well lately.

My crabs love their wheel! If you get a wire one, i advise using aquarium silicone on any exposed edges so they don't rust

My newest, Pax, changed shells about four times, but always returning to the akward, chipping paint, too-small one hed been in for (I assume) the last five years.

Then I was like, listen budy, you're done - I'm confiscating this monstrosity.

Now he's scrabbling around the edges of the crabitote, falling, knocking shells all over, and generally doing the new crab boundary testing. His moult sac is huge, and im really hoping he doesnt go down before Ive got the new 90 gsl set up.... so of course he will. :roll:
This is him:

Gah... now just imagine what that power could do if they used it for good, instead of evil? :lol:

ImageImage. Woke up today with both of my babies wide awake and ready to go. I let them crawl around my vanity (in a box) for a while while I got ready for school. I think my little mischievous looks so sassy in her new shell. ImageImage
