    My sister was at my house when my first shipment of crabs arrived. She asked how many I had and when I told her she whipped out her concerned motherly voice and said..."I think that is enough, don't you Wendy?"

    I have gotten another 15 more since then LOL!

    16 here... my husband has gone on record saying that it was "perfect" when I had four crabs in a 10 gallon tank. He doesn't see how I can care about all of them as individuals when there are so many! But I can, and do. [​IMG]

    Hehe, I love them all, of course. I tried to think which would be my favorite, but really I have some real characters of all species. I have a soft spot for Purple Pinchers, because I started with them and because I think they are underappreciated because they are the most commonly available. My PPs are fabulously diverse in coloring and personality, and the fact that most of them enjoy changing shells is fun. They are the hardiest species, too.

    Ecuadorians are the species that is newest to me, and I have really been enjoying their antics. They tend to be extremely shy, but it seems they are getting more relaxed as the months pass. They move fast and climb everything! I would love to have a few more Es.

    I have 4 because I only have a 10 gallon tank. If I can figure out the formula to make them live longer than 1 month, then I might get a 20 gallon.
