Oh yes I second the Canadian Chubby Crab, I’m in the US and I still order from her. Very good stuff from her!

I haven’t ordered from them yet. I’ve got tons of food to feed right now. Still working on amounts to put in dish. The crab that is the biggest pig (Happy) is still underground molting. And bashful well he’s so little....

Going to re-set my tank up when Happy is back on top.

Is this a website, etsy store, or-- so many people say how great it is, and I'd love to give it a try!

Moved the salt water dish from the exact centre to the side of the tank. Under but not right under the lounger. To give them more walking around space. I have pebbles covering the bottom of both dishes. Found bashful upside down in the dish. I assumed he was climbing and fell I’ve pulled him out of there

Also put dish back were it was but moved it bit more to the left.

Really like dish off to the side but I don’t want bashful falling in it again. Haven’t seen bashful poke his head out of shell

Bashful was fine after falling into water dish. Was eating that night. Still really shy and hides into shell all the time and does not want to come out to say hi.

Happy has been under the substrate since March 31. Hope he comes back soon.

Shell on right with brown lines is the original. The all white one is the new shell.
