    Okay, so, today I ran around to a couple stores. Every Tuesday I run to the petstore because I am looking for  a mini rex doe (rabbit) to breed to my male. They said they get them in every once in a while so I keep checking...

    Anyway, of course I had to go check on their crabbies. They had about 7-8 but none were coming out of their shells. Then I noticed someone over on the water dish drinking from the sponge. I picked her up and she didn't go in her shell, she just sat there. So I put her down and she started to crawl around. I then picked up the wood and saw there was a crab inside. I got her out and she was crawling around. Everyone else wouldn't come out. I picked both crabbies up and they crawled on my hands. That was it..

    I would like to introduce you to Casey and Stacey :) I think they are both E's but they don't look like Laicee or how Maicee looked. Stacey has more of a darker color to her and Casey is a lighter yellowier color (is yellowier a word???) Here are some pics of Kirby's newest girfriends :)

    :thanks: And that's what Stacey's shell is called? I was wondering. It reminded me of tiger stripes and if she was a boy I was going to call her Tiger...but she was a she so we stuck with the rhyming girl names :)

    :dancin: Laicee did the cutest thing in the world! I went in to check on the newbies and then checked on the tank and Laicee was sitting on top of Kirby's shell! It was too cute. Kirby was just sitting there and Laicee was up top looking around! I wish I has my camera but I had to go with my mom somewhere real quick and didn't have time to take a pic. I love my crabbies!

    Thanks guys..I am like super excited right now!

    I came home from work and checked on the crabbies. They all looked great. Then I realized that I didn't see Laicee. I did see where she had dug down though. I figured great, she is going to molt on me. Oh well. Then I was looking and realized that JaCi, my first crab after Kirby who was molting was up!!!! I was so excited! She looks fine. All limbs are still there, no deformities! My first successful molt! YAY!

    Then I went back just now to give them fresh food and water and all and you can tell Kirby is in a spunky mood because he is up on the wood jungle gym. Then I realized that JaCi, freshly up from her molt is in a new shiny white shell! Also, Laicee was back up, guess she changed her mind about molting. Anway, I have 5 active crabbies right now and that is just super exciting!

    Thanks! Is it normal for a crab to change shells pretty much everyday? Since JaCi came up she has changed between 6 different shells now :-/ It hasn't even been a week...
