    Does this crab look like a Porcelain Crab to you guys? It was caught in the Sea of Cortez in Mexico by a friend of mine. The water down there is up around 80 degrees right now. He has a few of them. This one is in my sump currently. I'm guessing Porcelain because it has the characteristic...

    My 4 blue-leg hermit crabs are fighting, i think, crawling on each others backs and "smacking" each other with their legs...sounds funny I know. Any idea why they are all fighting? Does it have anything to do with mating? Help o.O

    :help: The WEIRDEST thing happened. I bought 1 large (quarter-sized) blue leg hermit crab about 3 weeks ago. A week after him, I bought 3 small blue leg hermit crabs. Two days ago, I found a dead crab with no shell laying in the sand, and I was really upset, because I thought the big one died. I...

    I had a 20g with emerald and porcelain crabs. When either species molted they both were eaten by a peppermint shrimp. I have a 75g that has been cycling for 2 months. In a 2-4 weeks I will be purchasing either a couple emerald crabs or cleaner shrimp or fire shrimp. My question is which is more...

    Okay, so i've have a Calico crab for at least 2 or 3 months that i found under a bridge. He seems to be a pretty "get along" crab.. but the problem is he keeps losing legs. Everytime he molts he gets them back (yeah i know thats supposed to happen) and this has been going on for a while now. At...

    Came home tonight and turned on the lights to my biocube and see this little guy eating my clove polyps!! This was my most succesful coral by far, and over the last couple of weeks about a hundred polyps have gone missing, i thought it was the cyano strangling the coral from having any light but...
