Question about red claw crabs
I keep three red claw crabs in a 100 litre tank, and my question is if it's normal that they are very shy and run and hide whenever I get close to the tank?
This what the tank looks like: tumblr_n61g2rEBxy1tc4916o1_500.jpg
(I have some plants on the other side of the tank)
At least, they've never escaped...

Crabs are naturally timid since they are a main food source for many predators. Given time and enough hiding spaces to feel secure they may grow used to your presence.
