    Welcome! You can find more information in the general care section but it sounds like your crabs have a great new owner! Soon, you'll want to get more and more crabs and bigger and bigger tanks. It's addicting. :chuckle: Enjoy the site and your new crabs!

    Welcome rohawkj !

    They are fascinating creatures, and it's normal for them to dig down and chill for a bit. Don't go looking for them, they'll surface when they are done de-stressing.

    There's a lot of good info on this site, so check it out when you get a chance. Don't hesitate to join in and if you have any questions, just ask. :flower:

    I bought my first two crabs (PPs) at an earthbound trading co. in the fall. They were all in open store air, crammed into a circular plastic thing with walls, literally layers of crab in every inch of space. Some water sponges, and a few plastic palm trees. I didn't think much of it and I bought a couple. But since then I've learned that that is WRONG to keep crabs that way! Was the store you bought them from like that too? I wonder if we could send a letter...
