WV Reefer’s Bad Crab’s Dirty Den—Found the Crab!

Recommended Posts

 

Last night I put this tank together for the mystery crab that lives in my 12 Gallon Long. It is the same cube I used for The Home of The Creep. 

 

The crab has recently grown quite large and the other night I caught him trying to murder Buffalo Bill! When I checked the tank this morning I discovered he had killed the Halloween Hermit!!  

 

The tank is too small for any kind of trap so I just went berserker and grabbed the little sh*t and pulled him out!

 

Now he has a lovely new home. 😊

 

 

 

Equipment:

 

2.2 Gallon Cube

Nano Box 14000K light 

Hydor Powerhead

Heater

 

 

This is his last molt. I’m guessing Stone Crab.

New home.

 

I need to get the stand out of the attic..... for now it’s in the kitchen with wires balled up in the back.

The killer in his new home.

I figured in this tank he could spread his legs out a bit more. 😄

You're telling me!

I was thinking of how to give him a quick death and now he has his own home. 😄

if you have to justify it, you gotta admit there might be a bit of a problem......

get yourself a Mantis Shrimp and open up betting for the Hunger Games!

 

read an article about a guy who had a Mantis (don't remember which one) and that he had no issues for some time, but then it got big enough to feel comfortable and started to confront others. they pulled it out of their tank when it took the eyes stalk off one of his hermits and tossed it into a much bigger tank with pistol shrimp. they said there was warfare all night and when he checked in the morning, the Mantis had been decimated. he went to pick it out, but it was still 'just' alive and split his finger. he took care of that and came back to curse the bastard and found him to be truly dead then.

I dug the stand out of the attic so now it’s official. I need to make him a better cave..... the barnacle shells were the best I had on short notice.

Possibly. For now it may pull coral overflow duty. 

 

I want to see how he does before I start putting a bunch of stuff in there.
