Re: new crab and dominance vs aggression

yep! also on further inspection, new crab looks like it might actually be female. once it gets more comfortable I should hopefully be able to get a better look, but I think I do see gonopores. fiddles is definitely male, so I wonder if that affected their behavior at all (if new crab is actually fem...

Re: new crab and dominance vs aggression

ok probably final update: they've been together for like a month, and the new crab just came up from his first molt today! so the crabs are doing good and I'm really happy. :)

Re: new crab and dominance vs aggression

ok even better news, last night I put new crab in the tank while I was there to supervise and there were a couple of pokes (it almost seemed like fiddles was investigating him instead of being aggressive) and that was it, they were in one of fiddles' favorite hiding spots together and it was totally...

Re: new crab and dominance vs aggression

so I started dipping them and doing some supervised visits on this tray I got (so it's not familiar to fiddles either) and it's definitely gotten better. still no pinching or anything and they've never croaked/chirped at each other. they both are passionate about, well, escape, so they were mostly d...

Re: new crab and dominance vs aggression

yeah fiddles was definitely territorial over the coconut hut. they both wanted to be in the back in the little comfy hole fiddles had dug. I think him having been on his own for well over a year is gonna work against me here, especially since he was doing very well on his own and seemed very happy. ...

new crab and dominance vs aggression

so I've had my crab fiddles for over a year and he's been doing great (multiple successful molts, very active, very friendly, etc.). but when I originally got him I didn't really know too much about them, including that they need friends. a few months ago, I actually got him a buddy and they got alo...

can't stick acurite thermometer/hygrometer in tank

so I got the acurite thermometer/hygrometer like a little bit ago and it was mostly just sitting in the tank because I've tried sticking it to the wall in the tank, but between the humidity/moisture and it being a little chunky, it keeps falling. I know a lot of people on here use it for their crabs...
