    Early April-June 25th 2009.
    You may know this day when Micheal Jackson died and the best crab I ever had.
    I remember when I got him and I knew what to call him...Clowny. He had a clown shell and was most active in the tank. I miss him so much and I know he having a great time up there.
    Rest in Peace little guy(or in my back-yard). :(:(

    Was he still in a painted shell? That may be why...painted shells are SO awful for crabs, it makes me so mad...

    Did you offer him alternative shells? Even if the paint is still intact, the clear layer that they put over the paint will chip without you noticing, and it is just as toxic as the paint itself.

    I know that commercial food can cause crabs to lose legs, along with overcrowding (it makes them 'smaller' so they'll fit better in their environment).
