Oh no!!! I'm so sorry Clipper died! You have done so much for him, and he went anyway. It breaks my heart. I'm already all over FMR, and the manager, Paul Manger, doesn't care. I read a newspaper article about him, and he has a pet marine biologist that says this in no way harms the crabs. I called the guy about several concerns I had with their caresheet, and he hung up on me before I could even broach the subject of painted shells. You'd do much better to send your pictures and a letter to: Chief Animal Welfare Officer Sarasota County Animal Services 8451 Bee Ridge Road Sarasota, FL 34241 Which I have already done, including both of your long pictorals about this evil. I am trying to get FMR investigated, and that is the body that does it. Please see my post at: http://www.crabstreetjournal.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=913 Good luck, and let me know what happens, please.
