@ thincat yeah I know I need more than just an aquarium, they need "hard" (they were talking about calcium by crunching up eggs and microwaving them and putting them in the water to increase calcium and also kills bacteria) and I learned some more stuff from here How to Raise Red Claw Lobsters | eHow.com
(they said to use limestone flour to increase calcium). I mainly just need to know what size would be best to take care of plenty of lobsters since they say a 1 pound lobster usually carries 8000 eggs and 9 pound lobsters can carry more than 100,000 eggs, but they say out of every 50,000 eggs, only 2 are expected to survive to legal size (what does legal size mean? They don't explain much here Lobster FAQ — FactMonster.com
) and why don't the others make it to legal size?
I will search for a book, but not really sure what to put in the search, I will go to books.google.com first.
To have them as pets, but if one dies of old age, is it safe/ok to eat them? Or does it depend on how long they have dead?
In any case it'll be a while before I get the nerve to eat any.
