As well as 2 small purple pitchers in my classroom. I was handed two weeks ago. As every class must have a pet. And what started me on this venture.

Thank you.
Well, I have a 29G which I will be moving my crabs to once everyone is up. When, if my E is still alive, I can give him the proper substrate he needs. If he isn't, unfortunately, if I get another E, I can also give the crab proper substrate.

The E is in my profile pic. He was so cute (until he changed to a Tapestry lol)

unfortunately, it looks like he must have been cannibalized at some point
all i found were pieces of exoskeleton
let's hope he just had an unsuccessful molt and was only eaten after passing.
we'll never know...
