Bought 2 new males on Wednesday. They are beautiful crabs. BUT Mango the biggest current resident in the tat has been keeping Milo the bigger of the males in his place. Also tonight I saw her give a very strong leg flick to Pepper the smaller of the males when he tried to approach the food dish she was at. Milo is about the same size as Mango but Pepper is quite a bit smaller. Hoping for some more friendly action shortly and some babies this season.

Monster has changed shells. She had been in the big ridged one since Feb so it’s good to see a change.

Edit that shell change notification. It is actually V who has changed shells not Monster. Think V is a boy.
