    Well, guy... girl... It's hard to tell the difference when I can't get that close. lmao.

    Anyway. It was the only one left out of my step-mother's Hermit-Crabs, the others just suddenly died... I showed/told her everything to do, and her tank was *just* like mine... So I don't know. This little guy has technically been in ISO for several days now, and he's still a pretty color, still active, and still alive. :rolleyes:

    So now that I moved in with my father and my step-mother she gave him to me. She said she feels terrible for killing as many as she has, which were just simple mistakes on her part, but she's given up the hobby, and said she'll just come in and look at mine! lmao.

    I now have FIVE crabs! Woot!

    Pictures soon!

    By the way, they're all getting along great. All five of them were huddled together in a corner this morning... Just hanging out, they really haven't done that much... But it was cool to see!

    Yeah, she says she feels terrible because she honestly don't know what went wrong. I showed her and told her everything that I do for my crabs and she did... So it's still somewhat a mystery...

    But I'm pretty happy we could salvage one guy. :)

    Well, I'd say so... He's so grumpy that when the others got sick and died, he managed to hang in-there... Plus he doesn't like me walking up to the tank, he'll hide... All my others are used to me by now. :rolleyes:

    Thanks guys.

    He's doing fabulous! I also boiled a bunch of extra shells my step-mother had, and OMG. Everyone, except Grumpy and Bashful, changed shells at least once. It was so funny, I'd walk in about every hour and somebody was in a new shell every time.
