My crabs LOVE those. To keep it from molding, spray it with salt water. (Or your tank for that matter.)

Thanks guys. I added him back in the tank, he hasn't moved out of his garden pot for more than 5 hours. :-( He is very lethargic, but when I hold him, he is energetic. I'd keep him in ISO, but unfortionitly, I don't think I would be able to keep good conditions in the one I have. I think I'm gonna I...

Well, bathing messes up the water in their shell, the salinity of it, and stresses them out. Most crabbers do not bathe their crabs. :wink:

As ya'll know, I've (like many others) have been suffering from Empty Tank Syndrome. Bo-rang! I really really needed to mix up the EE-it was getting sloppy and nasty. Yuck. I knew I would be finding crabs-but I didn't know how many or how far along they would be. I dug up 4, thankfully they just had...
