Hi! I am so sorry to hear about the crab fight. Hopefully it will not ever happen again for you. I have experienced crabs grabbing each other and not letting go. For me what worked was dropping both simultaneously into either the salt or fresh water pool. Luckily this has always worked so far. Has y...
Hi! I am sorry to hear about your heat. 100 degrees must feel awful. Maybe you could try putting some ice in plastic bags and place them against the outside of the glass tank above the substrate and possibly on top of the lid. Just watch the temperature closely. Hope this helps.

My crabs don't wear their leg tips down now that they are in captivity but many came with worn off tips. I wo...
I am so sorry to hear of your crabs death. Thank you for filling out the emergency form. I am not an administrator but a couple of things stood out to me. Purple pinchers should have a temperature range of 75 to 85. 70 is too cold. I have found that if a crab is too cold that it will hang out right ...
Hi! Crabs can bury themselves and leave little or no trace behind. I have also seen crabs fix the sand so no trace of digging remains after a fellow crab buries. One of my crabs usually fixes the sand when his tank mates go under. It is neat to watch.
