Re: What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

We were making meatballs and spagetti and I decided to make the crabbies a safe little dish for them. <3 I took some ground turkey, spinnach, egg, HCP mineral supplement (instead of salt, for their batch), and rolled them into tiny mini meatballs. Baked them fully and laid them on a bed of cooked ri...

Re: E's are crazy!

The tank trashing does tend to grow along with the crabs! But it's all in good sport, right? At least that's what I keep telling myself everytime I have to re-fix up their tank. My crabbies tend to knock things off of the wall and topple ontop of them. Last night I heard a pretty loud drop of someth...

And...he fell in the mush... >.< Twice.

I made this "mush" for the crabbies. I really just took fresh fruits, fresh veggies, all of their dried foods, mealworms, shrimp, and mineral supplement all in the blender and blended it all together and served that for the crabbies. Just as something different. Well, both of the crabbies REALLY lik...

Re: Hyper speed E?

Brink is like that!!! He's very jerky with his movements. Last night he RAN across the tank and then stopped almost at the end and just sat there feeling around, then darted back to the other side. Sometimes I wonder if he forgets what he wanted to do when he finally reaches a place. XD He's also a ...

Re: What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

Tonight is the FIRST night the crabbies are trying some homemade popcorn. =) I broke out the popcorn maker since some friends were over for a movie night and decided to put a mini bowl in the crabitat for tonight. I like popcorn plain, so they got it plain as well. There was a little extra virigin o...

Re: Woohooo!! Two females with eggs!! Update P.6! BABIES!!

They'll probably get the calcium from the brine shrimp. The light thing is interesting. i wonder if they need UV light to grow. It could easily be a part of their diet, with them being as small and living how they are at the surface. All I know is animals that go towards light normally are sun-depen...

What are some signs that a crab isn't doing so well?

Thulian is adjusting well. Too well, almost. He's a bit of a bully to Brink, who's kind of had enough of him. More times than not, if Thulian is around Brink curls up into his shell. This morning I found Thulian and Brink in the moss pit and Brink just looked miserable. He wasn't really curled up, b...

Re: New E Crabbies C:

PPs and Es make really great tank mates, so I've heard. As long as they have their species buddy. =) My Es are more active than I planned on them to be. Definitely more active during the day than my friend's crabs, who are only active really strictly at night. Introduce them during a day that you ca...

Re: My E Loves to Chirp

My E chirps when his E buddy wants to sleep. XD If one goes to sleep, the other will sit there chirping every now and then as if to wake the other up to play. Haha. It's very cute.

Re: What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

Oh gosh, protien mix was such a success!!! I decided to do something different for the crabbies. I think every Sunday I'll be adding a new home-made mixture to the tank to see how they like it. They LOVE this new one. I made it a protien-based mixture, but it also has traces of calcium and such. I m...

Re: And... he opened the tank??

I don't think it's a want to escape with them, more-so as it's just something they can do. They're very curious, as I've notice, and anything that they get into they want to examine it to the fullest. =) It's really cute seeing them money-climb upside down on the mesh lid. XD On another note, I beli...

Re: And... he opened the tank??

LOL That is too funny. Maybe I should weigh down the top as well? Thankfully you have to be outside of the tank to unlock the second lock. There's a lever that you need to lift in order to get it to unfold, then you have to lift it up. So I'm sure they wont be able to manage that one. Didn't say the...

And... he opened the tank??

I am thoroughly impressed...and kind of aggrivated, by Thulian opening the slide-lock lid. He opened it enough that he could unlock it, but didn't get much further than that. Like I said, still impressed. I'm going to have to lock it on the other side as well now because I bet if he had another half...

Re: Fighting e's

I JUST witnessed this "1-2 punch" with my E's last night. I thought it was a fight, and by the time I got up to attempt at breaking that up (Sleepiness and large pinchers kind of slowed me down) they kind of just dug down their own ways. XD Then I read this. And was like "Oh! Yup, that's exactly wha...
