    Sadly, and still in denial and shock....I've lost my Hercules. I was estatic that he finally molted, but I guess the stress of finally molting was too much for his little body:(....He was a good crab, a sweet, gentle giant ofthe 10 gallon crabitat. I'll miss you little guy! Another "X" for a sad week of losses for our members.

    I'm sorry to hear about Hercules. I haven't had to go through a molt yet, but from everything I've heard, it seems really stressful on everyone. I know it has to be hard. Again, I'm really sorry.

    I remember how you still held out some hope for Hercules. I know he was your baby and that you will miss him. I'm truly sorry for your loss.

    Thanks everyone:eek:...It's always a comfort to know I have people who understand. I'm still holding out hope that Rocky will emerge from his molt ....he's been gone for quite a while. Hercules completed his molt, but never ate his exo.

    You were a good care giver to him, and did everything right. It must have been his time to go. So sorry it is so hard to let go.

    A Memorial service was held for Hercules today, February 25, 2008. He was laid to rest under a young live oak tree with Jeremy officiating.:eek:
    He leaves behind to cherish his memory: Flash, Baby, Spooky, Herbie, Rocky, Violet, and Fester....his human friends, The Nelson Family.....you will be missed!

    I'm sorry you lost him. His name rings a bell in my head, as you mentioned him often. I'm sure he was loved very much :(
