    He came dark- but I do feed them all a wide variety- some are good eaters some arent- I only see Blackbert eat late at night if at all so I am not certain what he's doing. :D

    How cute!! Blackbert is so interesting!! I have 5 crabs that are PP's and one that I am not sure about. He is kinda redish-purple all over. No difference between his pincher and the rest of him. Any suggestions?

    I would LOVE to make a living setting up people tanks or help--that white gizmo is a shower caddy that we modified to create a 2nd level. :D
    just go to the dollar store and you can find lots of fun things to use!

    He's buried right now. I think he may be molting. He was eating and drinking a ton right before he buried. As soon as he surfaces, I'll get a pic posted!! Can I use any kind of silk flowers and stuff in the tank or should I stick to plastic plants?

    I prefer silk--if you use plastic just watch for the metal cause somewhere they will pinch it and it will rust at some point. :)

    you dont want anything sprayed--painted that can flake off--if it smells strong that is toxic (fumes) its just common sense. I really try to stay with safe things like choya//netting/ plastic 2nd levels//shells/rocks that are washed off super good- etc etc

    I use plants from the dollar store and yes, they have metal in the stems, but if you get some with the thick green plastic stems, you shouldn't have any problems. Mine have been in there for well over a year with no exposed metals.

    when adding new decorations, is it better to boil them, or soak them in warm saltwater?
