    Yeah, I always loved watching my crabs change colors as they get healthier. I'm curious, though, because my two little PPs were light pink with purple stripes down their legs whereas my two bigger PPs (medium to large) were much more of a red/pink with purple. I'd love to see my crabs turn the color of yours, though!

    HermieFun - they are beautiful!!

    My newest addition (a small PP) is odd. I was very concerned about his color but so far so good. I have had him for over a month and he's active and doing well. Look at his color. He's white!

    He has one leg with a bright red tip.

    He hasn't molted yet so I am curious as to whether he will stay so light.

    I actually thought something was wrong with my crabs after they molted cause their colors changed. His white color could be his his color or his pre molt color. I have 4 that all have various colors of light tan to dark purple/ brown color. Just make sure he gets lots of things like protiens, honey, cuttlelbone, worm castings, ect...
