Shells finally came in! (A big success)

Post by rufeelinitnowmrkrabs » Fri Dec 28, 2018 6:12 pm

After a long postage wait and much needed shells, I finally got them! (Purchased off of Naples seashells) After rinsing them in salt water my big guy changed in the first 2 hours they were put in! (And most likely will again)

The smug guy took the prettiest one!
And a big thanks to this community for helping me out!!

Congratulations! It's crazy how crabs react to new shells! I always enjoy watching them roll and poke inside the shells before they decide to change. We will watch them for 30-40 minutes but as soon as we walk away is when they finally change! I guess they like their privacy and don't want to be seen naked.

Thank you!! And Oh yes indeed. Mine is still switching between two and knocking everyyything over haha. They are sneaky little guys, mine changes when I’m still in the room somewhere (but not by his tank obviously) so cute :) !!
