Re: Having E's/With PP's?

1. How to E's handle fluctuation in humidity compared to PP's? I have read that straws are sensitive; is this the case with E;s? 2. Can they co-exist with PP's? Any issues? 3. What are the adaptations I would have to make to suit the E's better while keeping it ideal for the PP's as well? 4. What h...

Re: I think I have an OCD crab

Re: Chirping...is it always a bad sign?

the few times I have heard it I can't say that it was friendly and definitely not happy. once my blueberry was trying to rip the other blueberry out of its shell, so was loud i heard it the second i walked in the room. I have an E that will chirp at me when I open up the tank. I'm kinda thinking it ...

Re: Growth Rate

exactly! There is no reason to believe hormones do not play a part in their growth rate. I raised African Cichlids and it was really interesting to watch their social structure. The non-alpha males were smaller and duller colored to resemble females. Whenever the alpha male died, despite their age a...

Re: Growth Rate

Zoey, do you know the sex of those E's? I wonder if the sex may affect how fast they grow. I know it does in some other (non-crab) species of animals. I have often wondered the same thing, if sex effects growth rate. i do not know their sex, the big one is currently molting but i'll try to grab the...

Re: Growth Rate

i'm not sure but it really seems to depend on the crab for other species so I imagine it would be the same for blueberries. In the 6 few months i've been crabbing.
