It seems like aquariums are to humans as shells are to crabs. Like putting one shell on a populated beach it triggers a bunch of changes lol

Haha, don't tempt me! Although, with it being like a "rescue" it sort of is a vacation home for some of them.

Cute crabbies too!
Thank you

:lol: Don't feel bad! I'm sure your tank is great!!!
Thank you though! That's funny that he thought they were paintings! :D I'll be sure to keep the updates coming.

A few weeks ago I found a set of PP's going at it, and a set of E's going at it...
I was able to get this pic onto Instagram, but my phone broke days later and I lost the original pics and the video. :(

I've checked both females and it appears that only the E's took, or perhaps i'm looking at the wrong PP :? It's tough when ten of them have the same shell on.
I'll keep an eye out though! :wink:
