    This is my 29G Crabitaty, Im usually good at decorating, and I've bought new stuff since theses pictures (have to put them in though), and I only got 1 picture of Dig since you know, hes always Digging lol so hope you enjoy. I'll also put up new pictures when they get out of the darn painted shells =/

    (The bottom of his legs (where our toes would be) are missing, I think they were like that when we got him, poor fella.)

    Some of my crabs change immediately and some take months and months! It's annoying when you have to keep them in ISO for THREE MONTHS BECAUSE THEY WONT CHANGE SHELLS! ell, best of luck and hopefully they'll change soon enough.;)

    That the same with all my crabs. I been crabbing since January and not even one hermit crab change into there shells. I think the ones that are painted like there shells or something. I got to change Aqua since she so small and she in like calleigh shell. Her leg is 2 x's smaller than Calleigh.

    Nice pics. Aww they're cuddled next to each other. Did you place them there?

    Ooh, watch out. Those cut legs might get infected.

    No, they've been sleeping there together every day for like 3 days now lol
    And I hope they dont get infected, I didnt notice his legs were like that until I brought him home, I want him to molt and change shells soon (you can tell his shell is chipping from the pictures)

    With your good conditions, I'm sure he'll go down to molt in no time;).

    Yeah, my hermit crab with a painted shell his paint's chipping off too. The sad part is, the shell inside the paint looks much, much cooler than the sloppily painted cartoon characters and four-leaf clovers. D:

    Yeah I know, I hate how they always put them into painted shells.
    Im waiting for my order from Vicki, then I'll remodel my tank =)

    Is it bad that my guys arent very active during the day or night?
    They're eating and going into the salt bath but besides of that nothing much
    I goto bed at like 3 am and wake up at 9 and it doesnt look like they've moved except for the missing food so I know they are sometime lol
