Who Doesn't Like Baby Pictures?

Post by Motörcrab » Sun Jul 14, 2019 8:16 pm

I personally dislike pictures of parents showing off their babies. Kittens, puppies, turtles, and whatever else makes me smile though.

Xenocrab and I are back from Crab Con, I will post a run down in the next day or two, hopefully.

We tried to get six E's but I believe we got three E's and three P's. You can see a million pictures of these guys, or girls, and until you see them in person you can't get a grasp of how small they are! Yet they act just like the big ones!

The last two pictures are part of the data we need to record for Mary. We are measuring their leg span. Each color ring is 2mm. We will also be, or attempting to record how long they molt each time, how many times, shell changes, and other things we notice. We need to send that off to Mary quarterly for her records. It is going to be exciting see how they do in various areas of the country in different conditions.

You have some great pictures! I haven’t got any good ones to share yet, they’re kind of blurry. They are so precious!

It's been a while since we posted some updated baby pictures. So far we only have one issue with them. We just don't see them. They come out late at night and as soon as they see us they hide. The are great at vanishing instantly. You literally blink and they are gone!

With talking with Mary she is pretty confident that she only had PP's and no E's for adoption. As these guys grow their colors are starting to come out more and more on their legs and pinchers. They are all looking to be PP's.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

As I make adjustments to my tank set up and make everything absolutely perfect, I am soo anxious to watch your babies grow! If you don’t mind, of course! Good luck and bless your babies!

The babies are fun to watch, when they are out. We used a 29 gallon for the six we got. It is massive tank for them. I think if we would do another baby tank we would go with a smaller tank maybe a 10 or 20 gallon. Since they are so tiny we only need about 3" of substrate. 3" for them is probably equal to 6-8" for a normal tank. Even when you see a lot of pictures it is still hard to fathom how tiny they really are!

Are you planning to keep them with your current tank or have tank just for them?

I love your baby tank! Even better seeing them in it and moving around, they are soo cute! I can’t get over those little palm trees you made, I want them. Lol! I think I see my babies more because they are in a 10 gallon tank. I have a 30g for them but I’ve hesitated to move them over because, like you said, it is a lot of room for them. I like that I can actually see them more often and I don’t want to lose that. I do have a corner hex tank I was thinking of moving them over to but I need a new lid for it, with these guys being so small, I don’t trust the lid that came with it.
Edit: You made baby enrichment cubes!!! How did you get them together? I don’t think I’d be able to make my fingers work with something so small! Lol!

We added corner guards to the top of the nursery. It's plastic clear angle we siliconed on the inside. It closes any gap you may have with a top. We found it at Lowe's. I can't remember what area.ImageImage
