2 PPs and a baby E!

Post by ciaraalston » Sun Aug 05, 2018 4:58 pm

Hey yall!
I now have 2 crabs buried and 4 crabs up in the tank! The newest emerged sometime last night. I'm not sure if it's the crab I was worried about (found an empty shell) or if it's the other one that buried immediately after I brought him home, but whoever it is they're healthy and happy!
My E absolutely LOVES hanging out on top of the grass mats. Everytime I go by the tank that's where he's at. It's really cute honestly.
And of course my other two big PPs are up and moving around. I caught one on the wheel last night and I tried to get a video but he refused. He was okay with me watching but once the camera started recording he would just stop and stare at me. Haha.
Anyways, here's some pics Image

One of my bigs that's in a shell too big for him Image he's been shopping a lot lately!

Those are really cute pictures. I think I have that same grass mat. I got it from wish. I was thinking about cutting it and peicing it with a net...or some bark... Or both. Is yours hanging on the wall. Am I seeing that right?

I'm constantly confused about where to post. I apologise if it's wrong.

I got mine from amazon! They're hanging along the back wall, yes. I just wanted something they could climb that also hid all the heat tape and stuff in the back. Haha. They seem to love it though! The cocofiber was great but they shredded that so much that it was just wasted on the looks side of it. I got these hoping they wouldn't be able to tear them up as fast! Lol

Perfect! Thank you so much for posting this, because I didn't hang mine up yet, not certain they could climb it. Now I'm encouraged.... You do such a great job making them look cute and keeping them busy and healthy. You have happy crabs... And I'm totally jealous of your Ecuadorian. Image

Awe thanks! I'm definitely not a pro, just learning a little each day!
I brushed up the substrate in front of the wheel to help my little ones get up to it. I haven't seen them on it, but both of my big ones love it!
