Re: Shellfish Allergy

Being allergic to a meat is different than a peanut allergy in my opinion... it’s not like there is peanut bu...

Re: Crab hanging out of shell, gone missing

Thank you for all of the advice! Jimmy actually popped up today, and it looks like he hasn’t molted. I guess he was just destressing after all, so I will make a point not to disturb him. Can someone explain why calci sand is unsafe? There is some conflicting information online, but most say it’s bec...

Re: Crab hanging out of shell, gone missing

Thank you scuttle! I figured he was molting, but wasn’t sure if his behavior prior to doing so was normal. I do have three friends for him, so he is good there:)

New Here! 4 PPs, previous gift shop crab owner

I started looking at PETCO, then mom & pop shops (much better!), watched a ton of videos on YouTube and did...
