They're all purple pinchers! Or at least they should be. I haven't touched them since they were adopted. I'll take some up front photos when I move them over to the big tank. I was tempted to do the move... But opted to silicone down the handles to the proper place first.

Oh! Surprising! I love their coloring regardless! I can't wait to see more pictures of them! :crabbigsmile:

So today was moving day. The biggest, currently in the banded tapestry shell, is a female! Otherwise, I wanted to just move them fast. A total of 7 moved over.. 1 banded tapestry, 2 tapestry, 1 Babylon, 2 greens, 1 fox. I think I had 8 crabs.. Or 9. I positioned the wyze cam over the food bowl, hoping to catch someone snacking. I guess I'll have a pet sand for a year before I can redo it. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

AWESOME! I bet the one in the food bowl will have it messed up by morning! Great job, though! The crabbies seem to love it!

I have never been more excited to see poop in water. For it to be here, that means then came down, walked to the edge, then went back up.

Second thoughts.. He must've pooped when he was above on egg crate.

This guy just enjoying the sun I guess. He's been there for at least 10 min since I walked in.

He's probably like, "my complexion is coming along very nicely... and my skin is to die for..." :glasses7:

This might look like another crab photo, but I'm proud to say that Someone went into the freshwater pool, came up, and got the dwarf hair grass stuck on their shell, meaning they fully submerged. =D

I've wondered if they can find the access point, and they did. Image

I just took an hour out of my day to read all six pages of this journey and I have never spent an hour better in my crabbing life! So much creative work done here, most of the constructive jargon I didn't even understand but I still read, haha. How are the crabbies doing now? Has your pet sand hatched? I currently have a pet sand... no seriously. Said molter might've been eaten long ago before he was alone. Anyway, this saga is such a great addition to this forum, so many small-to-big ideas that everyone can benefit from! Someday when I get my own place I'm going to have to upgrade my 50 to a 100... crab room time ;)
