The other day this crab was walking back and forth on top of the cameras and thermometer, back to the shelf. Just over and over again. The next day I looked in the camera holders and there was poop! How rude!Image

Mine have been dragging moss all over the tank, and they know it's driving me crazy, haha!

I got some new shells on Friday and finally got them put in today. Mario is obsessively checking them out. Earlier he was eating dinner, tried to leave the food dish, lost his balance and rolled out of sight. Sigh.

Oh, AND my UTH pooped out on me yesterday, so I had to do a fast order for an Ultratherm. I've been wanting one anyway, but that was a hit to the bank account. Fortunately my tank is holding at 80 with my 2 heat bulbs so they should be fine until it gets here.

I agree, this thread is awesome!
I keep pics of mine with their names. In the pics it’s of them and not or their shell all the way. That way I can compare if they change.
