    Hi im new :) I have 5 guys in a 29gal tank. So far loving them as so easy to care for, best pet ever ;)

    I do have a question one of my guys "lost" his pincher claw >.< how we do not know but will it come back at some point? At first we thought one died being the tank smelled like fish bad too only to find that :HolySheep: The second photo is of the guy who lost his claw(the photo is when we first got him though so he has his claw there)

    All of them are purple pinchers too.

    Also for food the basic food the site sells is good for everyday feeding?

    A pincher falling off can be caused a few ways.
    1. stress, from being new. They should have time to destress. Just feeding and watering for a few weeks (no handleing at all ).
    2. Poor nutrition. Just like us they have food groups and need all of them daily.
    3. Injury
    It will grow back in time. After its next molt it will get a gel like limb.And after a few molts it will be back to normal although it might not look totally normal again.
    If you have any more questions about anything we will be happy to answer.

    By the way WELCOME!!!!!! its great to have you here at the forum..
