    I got him Friday night at petco for 10.99. He is the most active crab out of all of them and he isnt afraid of anything. I love him he loves to destroy the cage. It gets kind of annoying having to put everything back. But owell lol. Sorry for the bad picture quality got a new camera tonite and am still figuring it out.

    Thanks,

    His new name is Dez. He is really cool. Is 85 to warm cause its about 78 in my house should i just turn off the heat light? Its at 78 when the light is off. They had some huge straws one was the size of a softball it was huge. i didnt get him tho i wanted a smaller one this ones my biggest and it destroys the cage a lot haha.

    My straw is probly the size of a quarter hes just started to get his colouring since ive gotten him hes seemed to get brighter in colour and hes very shy but ive made some progress ive gotten him to come out and walk around on my bed in front of me but as soon as a hand goes for him pop there he goes lookin like a regular shell. And he reall looks like a candy cane hes white then on his joints hes bright red like a christmas red!

    Ever since i picked mine up in petco he has been out of his shell hes not shy at all. Im ordering him some shells no where near me sells shells big enough. I think i might upgrade their tank to a 65 instead of a 20 long... Im gearing up towards it.

    One thing to remember, strawberries are happiest having one of their own kind to hang with. That's why I now have four of them. Good lluck with your's. He's beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow he looks cool. I really want a straw but my local petstores don't sell them so oh well. You also have a nice looking clownfish. You could name him Blazzin

    crabbybeach i dont think at this time getting a strawberry would be smart for you they need alot of special care that your unable to supply your crabs with right now. They need sand to dig into, they like moss beds, a salt and fresh water they can submerge in and you have to buy special foods to keep there colour healthy. Right now you have gravol in you tank which isnt good as is. Aswell as straw need temps at 80 and they can be lower i have 1 straw and now i keep my tank at 82 at all times
