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.

Oh, another bummer! :(
Hopefully next season the second mama does things correctly and that this was just a trial run...

I'm so sorry to hear it, Kuza. I've watched with great interest when I've been here and hoped things would go well. One day, it will work out for you. You're blessed with mad energy and skills where the hermies are concerned. If anyone can do it, you can. :) Best of luck to you!

Nope, they didn't drop them in the water last time, so they may not have been viable. They also held the eggs a month longer than they should, both did. Soo I'm not sure what they were waiting for.
