Winter and power loss can be devestating

Post by Guest » Sun Feb 01, 2009 4:04 am

I am posting an official loss of 8 of my 27 crabs due to a 3 day power interruption.We have had a major ice storm in Kentucky. Even my best efforts at keping them warm, including moving a 40 gallon tank into the only room with heat,did not help. Many survived but these 8 were a hard blow for me and my little colony has suffered a great blow. I know we all love our hermets and occasionally lose or or two but to loose 8 at once is alot to deal with. I got brave enough today to dig down and find out who had survived and interrupted a large crab in a molt with no shell...so far he seems to be doing ok in a warm iso with a hermit hut and several shells to choose from when and if he able to.I hope he is not casualty # 9.
