Monster has dragged that whole prawn tail off somewhere.

Got a good look at Monster's underside this morning when SHE was trying to climb the front glass of the tank.. She is the biggest of the juveniles. You don't grow if you don't eat. BUT I still can't find that prawn tail. Fortunately it was only shell not meat (well maybe scraps of meat)

Can't see any reason to change the name.

She has outgrown the huge shell she picked in February and ignored the 15-18mm shells. I’ve added som 18-20mm but the shell she is checking out quite seriously is 28mm

What is happening to my babies

Thanks. I may be down to just 3 survivors now. Haven’t seen the other 3 for ages (months) now

That must show how inaccurate it must be to estimate a crab’s age
