I HAVE ZOEA!!!!!

This area is dedicated to the pioneers who have captive bred crabs, and for those who wish to learn more or attempt it themselves. Also for inquiring about the gender of your crabs.

I still have them! I've just been busy! I also purchased all new stuff to prepare a new kriesel this year. The huge decor bowls I used last year are working fine, but I'm hoping the kriesel will be less work! :hlol:

Thank you Ciara

Zoeae are still alive! They are 3 weeks old! I found that I have 2 megalopa already ~ and several others showing the signs of that stage happening really soon! (They have a pregnant belly type look). I was telling Mary tonight I just have been so tired that I’ve just been going through the motions and not keeping track of anything. I was on the phone with my mom yesterday and I said I thought they were coming on three weeks. I had to refer to my original video for the date! Lol it’s all of this staying up until 3am, my business, and life in general! I can’t keep up! I set up a transition tank~ had to go buy Caribbeanlive sand. Hopefully the water will be clear by the morning. Please keep up the well wishes!

Wow! Your crabs don't want you to have any rest! Good luck. I'm still not sure how you can Mary can go through all of this and still keep up with regular life. You two are crabby juggernauts! It definitely shows your dedication to these little pinchy creatures!
