    it loaded on mine, great looking crabs! Why can't reg pet stores sell them? It seems all they ever sell is just Purple Pinchers, is it cause they are special and cost more?

    They look great! How quick after you ordered did they get to you? Sorry for all the questions, I'm considering an order. I also worry about the cold weather.

    Re: New Blueberriers

    It was nearly 3 weeks but it was worth the wait, i live in just about the middle of no where so overnight for me is 2 days, when i ordered then the weather was fine i expected them to ship right away but thats ok. If you can get overnight shipping then the heat packs work fine but where i am in the freezing cold the crabs were a little cold when they got to me. But all are doing great so far half of them have changed shells already. I love the pic of the straw you got on your ava is it yours? if so how old or long have you had it? i have 3 straws but they are still the candy cane stripe.

    Wow three weeks! Did they tell you why it took so long, sheesh. I'm glad they arrived safely to you tho.

    The crabbie in my avi is Pyro. This picture was published in a calendar for the Addiction back in 2006 or 2007 can't remember which year (I had submitted photos for 2 years). Pyro was a big strawberry, my largest, a bit larger than a tennis ball. The pic was snapped when he came up from molt. He stayed with me for 3 years I believe. Was this your first order from LHC?

    The reason i got told was she was waiting for the new hermies to come in.

    i love those blues!!! so pretty! at income tax time, we want to get a really nice set-up for the crabs. we should be able to do this in february. i id like to get a blueberry when we get our bigger tank, & i do want to order from them as well. i rearranged our tank a bit lastnite, & today my humidity is too low. ive sprayed our EE with salt water & filled their water bowls to the top. i dont know what happened. ive not been having problems with it since i got the digital. i have the perfect shell for a bubble stone bowl, but the water mysteriously leaks out, so id like to use a safe aquarium sealant on it. does anyone know what would work best??

    For sealant I've used the All Glass Aquarium sealant sold at pet stores with no problems. Be careful with silicone sold at home improvement stores. My friend used that type in his fish tank to seal glass and almost immediately his fish died.

    I ADORE your new crabs. They're so pretty!! Do they have any different needs than PPs or E's? I've been tempted to order but I don't have enough room in my tank!!

    One of these days I'll get a setup like you have, and I'll have a whole colony of crabs. I sort of want a jumbo, but judging by the expenses of my large crabs in shells, that might be a little out of reach. And I have to take the crabs when I go away for college, so I have to keep it a manageable sized setup for the near future.

    Okay, a bit off topic: How do you make those spiffy banners with the crabs that are like cartoon-ized?? I've been baffled about how you do that. CrabAddict has them in the signature, and the site has the banner like that.
