I hope I'm posting in the right section.
It's not a disease, at least don't think so.
Tonight I had my second fiddler crab female fatality.
First one died about a month ago, but that was an understandable loss. She was very tiny and has gone through some rough times, lost a pincher and almost all legs on one side except for one, from a fight with a red claw.
This one thought, I just found upside down, dead for no apparent reason. She has been carrying eggs for a while.
Some facts about the medium I'm keeping them in. It's a 75g paludarium, half beach half brackish.
temperature: steady 78*F
ambient temp: steady 74*F
water gravity: 1.006
I did a liquid test just now.
All the other 8 crabs seem to be doing fine. They're munching on my floating plants [grr], eagerly accepted the peas I dropped just now, they're very lively.
Something else I'm missing, or should I just dismiss this as a "regular" death and move on?
I'd say she was fully grown and had her for about 3 months, bought from the LFS
. Maybe it was old age?
