Re: MY FLAXSEED SPROUTED!

The downside is that crabs LOVE knocking sprouts over. Then they lay on their side with suggestively wilted faces, seeming to cry "heeeelp meeee" and it just pains me to see the poor lil srouts like that. Some cut in half. Others strewn about. Mostly just sat upon, humiliated by heavy crab bottoms. ...

Re: WEAK DYING???

YAY! Dug under is a good sign. It means he had the strength and will to do what he needed. Now you just need to wait it out for him to come back up for you. Good luck!

Im not sure what to do

You need to let crabs molt. They can and will disappear fpr longer than a week. Crabs have been gone 4 months. Then, you need to not rebury crabs after you have disturbed them. Their caves are formed the way they have been doing it all their lives. To throw that off could stress or suffocate them. J...

Re: MY FLAXSEED SPROUTED!

They will be fine. They'll either rot and decompose or mold and show you where they are for cleaning.
Lil sprouts are sooo cuuuuute!

He can dig his way out of a lightweight cup.
Chirping might be a call of distress, if someone got to him from under the cup. It might be worth a peek. I would peek.

Re: Mixed Species

I have 3Es and 2PPs together. There was 1 E and 1 PP who seemed to have formed a bond before, when only they were up. But after everyone molted and shell changed they all seem to ignore each other now. I only have the 5 crabs in a 75gallon (4x1.5 or so) so the crabs have ample space. I mostly got th...

Re: Violet broke Shelby's LP off!

It is possible that she got too stressed out and died since the beginning, and shen she deshelled it was her last breath. Either way there isn't anything you can do for her at this point. Wait for the death smell, but if she is limp and naked i think she is dead. If she isn't death smelling you coul...

Re: Violet broke Shelby's LP off!

You can put it in the ISO food dish. She can recycle the nutrients from her old LP to grow a new LP.

Sad crab - even sadder crabber

Crabs are not domestic animals, they are wild animals plucked from nature and placed into a tank in your living room. That means hiding or running from a human being is a healthy and natural thing to do. Just respect that natural instinct and maybe one day it will learn to tolerate you. If you do en...

Re: Violet broke Shelby's LP off!

Hi. Shelby naturally has what it takes in order to make it through this type of ordeal. She needs to gather nutrients and then molt in order to repair her LP. If she can get around, walk, eat, drink, etc, and if Violet is no longer VioleNt to Shelby, you can simply leave Shelby alone in the tat and ...
