I lost my first crab today. She was a beautiful large Strawberry, and the first hermit I ever owned. For the last couple of days, she's been haning out naked in the water dish, and I was strugging to find out what the issue was. I thought maybe she was molting, or maybe had bugs. I thought maybe her shells were bothering her, so I took the lot of them out, and boiled them in sea water, then flushed them with fresh. Last night, she finally got back in to one of the freshly cleaned shells, but when I got home today, she was sitting in her favorite spot by the water dish, and unresponsive. I knew pretty much right away that she had passed, but I had to pick her up and find out. She was the most gregarious crab I've owned, coming almost completely out of her shell when she would walk on my hand. She was a racing crab, a climbing crab, and most of all, a friendly crab. I feel awful, because I know this is entirely my fault. I haven't been able to keep the humidy in the tank above 60% for any descent length of time, and I'm at a lost for an explanation. The only time it gets really moist in there is after I've sprayed. Hopefully, my other straw Eyeson Stalks, will hold out just a little bit longer. The worst part about this, is it has really dampened my enthusiasm for crab keeping. The same thing happened when I lost my first tropical fish, so I know this is just temporary, but.. well.. here I am. I'm just glad this forum has an obit section. Typing it out has helped. Its odd isn't it? Getting this attached to a decapod.
