That is hilarious! They are so pretty too!! This is why I keep my shell shops on second/third levels. They literally have to push the shell out of a basic to bury it.
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com

Mine absolutely loved the dried sponge, it was gone in a couple of weeks. It was really odd, as when I first started i had a sponge in my waterdish - the olden days - and it lasted for months. But as soon as it was dried, it became fair game...?

Haha, yeah! I've caught them a few more times hanging off the sides of this big one I have in my tank, picking away in a frenzy (those pigs)! :lol:
Edit: By saying "this big one" I mean sponge!

That reminded me, I'm missing a small coco hut in my tank. I can't remember if I took it out or they buried it lol. Image

My little dude, taken tonight. He likes to play king of the mountain on the sponge.

There was certainly a mountain of poop up there with him. Image

It's a small, single crabby size, hut. I have another like it in my tank now, and it's half buried just from my large crab digging in the corner next to it. I'll have to readjust it before I lose it too. Image
