The emerald crab is the size of a U.S. dime, and there is a TON of organic stuff in the tank, cause i just set up at the beginning of this month, and naturally some died. lets seeee
Ammonia levels read zero, Nitrite and Nitrate were at zero, and pH was between 8.0 and 8.2. My salinity was a little low at 1.018.
Do molts look very like the real thing? It was jammed into a cave like thing, and there are several hiding spots. When I took it out though, it smelled just like rotting lobster. Ive only had the tank for about a month so ive done one pwc
so far since filling the tank. I was told every week-two weeks?
hmm, some background on the lobster. I got him free in some live rock, and a good friend held onto him for me until my tank was cycled. I took him back last night, drip acclimated him, and put him in. He walked around the tank for a bit, like he was exploring, then wedged himself into a cave in some rocks and started eating something. Woke up this morning and he was dead as a doornail, or at least his molt was laying there. I hope its only a molt.
