The saltwater was right there!

It seems a little late in the year. I thought they were done by the end of August??

No clue on the timing, but congrats anyways, at least you know you have some happy and healthy crabs.

Just a little further crabbie!

I never did see any sign of what became of Athelas' last batch of eggs.

They looked really good this time, too. So many little eyes staring at me.

Could you place them in the SW and see if they hatch... Similar to brine shrimp eggs; can they withstand being "out and about"?

They had already started to dry out under the lights. Once mom is no longer regulating heat and humidity and keeping them moving they don't last long. :(
