    Here goes nothing!
    Yes, I have had the new adoptees since Sunday but sadly I am a computer challenged crab mom so it has taken me this long to figure out how to post pics. :doh:

    My youngest son and I drove 5 hours round trip to get our new crablettes - but it was a gorgeous warm sunny day! We brought 8 crabs home - a huge (large) PP, a large straw, an almost large E, a medium E, a small PP and 3 teeny/small E's. I had been told all would be fine in a 20L so needless to say I had to do a quick redo when we got home so the 4 largest crabs could go in the larger tank. The people who had them gifted us with tons of crab stuff - so that was really cool!

    Here are pics of some of the new crabs - sadly I am camera challenged too!

    This is T-Rex - who is a "very large" medium E

    Maybe now I can get some new pics of the "old" crabs - the crab baby book is not looking good. I am such a bad crab Mom!

    Columbus looks like a PP from the legs---the pics are good--the same link was done twice for T-Rex--I just wanted to tell you so if you do have another pic you can fix it-- he is a cutie--I hope you have another pic :cowboy_wink:

    The Straws are gorgeous! You were very lucky to get such a diversified crew~ :blower:

    They are ALL just Gorgeous! :petals: I think you are a Great Crabbie Mommy! I soooo want to find some E's - They just melt me with those eyes - lol
    My very first adopted crab was an E but I've never found another one & I think he may not come back after being under for at least 3 months now. I miss Frett- he was the friendliest one I ever had too because my step-daughter had handled him a lot before she had to give him up for dorm life & he actually seemed to enjoy it. He'd just sit out all day & watch every move & didn't even run when the dogs peeked in at him through the glass. I just had "Jade" come up from molting after a good 2 months, which seems like a long time for a small/med. ruggie (I think). They are always confusing me in the smaller tank because they stay down most of the time & change shells with each other (I think). I think they are just trying to keep me guessing. I want to try changing the lights to the moonglow (from the nocturnal red ones) to see if they are drawn out more. I have to wait til I can get 2 more of the modules. We'll see what happens. At least then maybe I could get some good pix of the smaller guys. :hiding:

    Thanks Hermez and Mac, Columbus is a PP and I know that - guess I was so excited about figuring out how to post the pics, I got confused! :doh:

    And I did change the link to a different photo of T-Rex!
