    Exclamation yellow lumpy stuff in my crab tank?


    0 Not allowed!
    Ok right now I noticed this yellow lumpy stuff on my crab's log, just slightly out of the water. It looks almost exactly like apple sauce, although I haven't tried to touch it. Eggs?!@!? I know it's very, very unlikely for red-claw crabs to breed in captivity, so I'm doubting it. I've never, ever seen anything like this in my crab tank before, and I've had them for at least 6 months.

    I included a picture. Has anyone ever seen this before?
    Should I remove it? If it's eggs I'd love to remove them and protect them,
    but I'm doubting that it's eggs....

    any ideas?

    no no no... you have to melt the butter first, then dip the crab into it...

    I've never kept crabs but it does sort of look like what happened when my cherry shrimp were first breeding and they didn't know what to do. She dropped the eggs when she was trying to move them to her swimmerettes and she couldn't find them again. Maybe do some reading on red crabs and how they breed. Sorry I can't help more.
    Fish are friends, not an expendable entertainment device!

    aw well thanks for your input! Better than "you're supposed to melt the butter before you dip the crabs in it"

    so weird.
