I keep a single one and he's always been hyperactive. He also does the climb on the arm thing sometimes, but usually he just gets close enough to see what I'm doing. He knows that "the giant hand" will give him a treat sometimes

When I feed flake he swims upside-down at the surface and eats with the fish. Pretty funny. They cost $15 to $20 here and I'm in Alaska so $30+ seems pretty crazy to me.

Molting is the only way they can grow out of their old shell. The new shell hardens within a couple of days to a week and they usually stay hidden during that time. They frequently molt every 3-4 weeks when young and about every month or two when fully mature.

Always a good thing and I’d leave the shell in the tank. The scavengers will get to it within a day or two.

yeah i paid an amazing price of $8 for my cleaners. Only ended up spending about $16 for both of them. Best Price i have ever heard of. As for them being active, the pair is always busy doing something.
