    I had 2 of my new ruggies I got in October pop up after their first molt w/me just hours before I left for Texas!

    Here's Andaman back in October:

    Ari also came up from her first molt, here she is back in October when I first got her:

    Pumpkin also came up after her second molt with me. Unfortunately, she seems to have lost color.

    I was surprised to find a freshly molted Tom kicking back in the moss pit when I did my headcount today. He fixed his deformed leg and grew a lot, but he wasn't feeling very social or photogenic, and this is the best pic I could get of him.

    You can see his deformed leg really well in this picture. This pic was taken last August, after his first molt with me.

    Tuvalu also molted a fourth time this month for me.

    Fiji came up from his fifth molt quite bigger than before. I think he's almost a small now!

    I also had some cool shell changes and also took some pictures of crabs that I've not gotten shots of in awhile.
    This is Bali now:

    I think you need to send me a couple of those for the COTW. Those pics where they are on the logs and stuff in the tank, they are really good pics. Don't forget to send a bio along as well as their names and your addiction user name so I know who they belong to.

    That goes for everyone who's taking pictures now. Send me one or two in an email so I can keep them on file for the upcoming months.
