    did a deep clean of my 20L which houses my evil cannabal E's.........I lost 2 and there was nothing left but their shell so I will assume eaten. One was Sonic and the other Hobo two wittle E's (sorry Steph) anyway being as I cannot stand not knowing who is who (as I often complain) I marked the shells with a design [img width=300 height=257]http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a296/vicfish/esarestraight037.jpg[/img] as I recently accquired shells that all look alike so I figure between the crabs looking alike and the shells I was doomed. I was happy to say that I figured out who was who and I am hoping it stays that way----

    first up is Kap:
    Kap had a deformed molt last time--I thought he would drop the leg but he hobbled around with this:

    now it appears he tried to molt again and its still a mess--looks like 2 legs joined together. Why he wont drop the leg is beyond me. I fear that may eat him too if he doesnt do something - I think he has had his shell stolen more than once. He was changing constantly but with shells that would not suit him. This one fits at least

    [img width=300 height=298]http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a296/vicfish/esarestraight058.jpg[/img]

    next deformed leg is Zip who had the sense to drop it I suppose

    This is a beautiful shell change: Mr. Green Jeans
    [img width=300 height=233]http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a296/vicfish/esarestraight007.jpg[/img] I love pearl shells but not alot of takers with those

    Darby took Mr. Green Jeans shell and is trying to hide from me
