Hello everyone.

I love crabs and I think they're very interesting. Used to have a red little one ages ago, he/she died during molting unfortunately. But now I'm gonna try my luck again.

With the last one I had ( sesarma bidens... or so they said atleast ) I probably just got lucky. Had him/her in a small tank with part land and part water. Never cared about water temp or anything. However he/she molted several times so I guess it wasn't too bad.

This time I'm gonna try to be more serious. However the petstore didn't help much. I got 2 new tiny little crabs who they said was "black crabs". But I can't find any info on them. Will post a pic as soon as I can get them out of their hiding long enough to take a snap.

This pic is the old love. Taken the day I saved her from the petstore. She'd been forgotten for weeks in an empty tank, hiding under a rock.

After trying to catch a wiev on the crabs today, I think I won't get a pic of them for a few days or so.

I was worried that they didn't get along. But after a long search I found them... strangely close, hiding in a cave I made them. They were either having some wierd dominance fight, or trying to mate... and now a few hours later the big one won't let me see the smaller one. He stands in the way of the opening when I try to look.

The 2 crappy imgs are of the "bigger" one. Ye I know, he's still tiny. The imgs are taken the day I bought them. He was a fast bastard tho, was hard to get the cam to focus on him.
