Okay, I've read around on the site trying to get some answers to some things and just to learn new stuff and I've came across something that I need answered. I think I read somewhere that you should never give a painted shell or item in the tank with the crabs? Is this because they will eat it?.. (the paint) Hogan was brought home to me on the 30th of last month and just know that I was not ready for him nor did I know I was getting him and that's why I'm unprepared. If I had known I was getting one (and that I would later grow THIS fond of the creatures) I would have done research ahead of time. I was bought some shells too, here's pics. http://img490.imageshack.us/img490/300/004nd7.jpg http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/7602/005th8.jpg They're not allowed to use these?
