Yes- All Crabs Up & 5 Great Molts!

Post by hermietastic » Sun Feb 24, 2008 3:28 pm

As ya'll know, I've (like many others) have been suffering from Empty Tank Syndrome. Bo-rang!

I really really needed to mix up the EE-it was getting sloppy and nasty. Yuck. I knew I would be finding crabs-but I didn't know how many or how far along they would be. I dug up 4, thankfully they just had to eat there exo and I released them into the main tank yesterday.

Most of them gained color, my little Whale was blue, and now he is turning into a wonderful bugrandy! I have really been trying to enchance their color, so I was very happy! Just wanted to let ya'll know that your tank will become active sometime again! :lol: :roll:
