    My new micro Hamlet died from a molt gone horribly wrong.Spider tried to eat him while he was molting and that stressed him out so bad and he just couldn't make it.[​IMG] I'm gonna miss him.I didn't have him for that long but I did get attatched.He was so friendly...

    I'm very sorry to hear that. [​IMG]

    Most cases of cannibalism have to do with nutrient deficiencies. If I were you, I'd go to a Petco or other large pet store and check their frozen fish food section for frozen silversides, which are a type of small sea fish. If you feed those to your crabs once every 7-10 days it should prevent any future problems of this sort.

    Thanks...
    I'll keep my eye out for the frozen silversides next time I go to the pet store.
