    Red Face I've Got Crabs!!!

    3 of 'em, to be precise.

    Ken and I went to the pet shop in search of bottom scavengers for our aquarium, preferably snails. (We already have 2 plecostimus and a very large goldfish in the tank.) They only had one snail, so we purchased three small red clawed crabs instead.

    First - we need help with naming them. We have 2 males and a female. We've named the one male Sebastian, but we're stuck on names for the other two.

    Second - have any of you owned these critters before, and if so, do you have any tips?

    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Re: I've Got Crabs!!!

    Wow T, at first I was going to say "Way too much info!"

    But what an awesome addition to an aquarium! I can't help you with care tips, but here are two name suggestions:

    Nebula (you know, the crab nebula.... dorky, I know)

    Or you could go with the slightly morbid "Etouffee". Sounds like a girl name to me.

    Re: I've Got Crabs!!!

    Cool critters!! I've never had crabs in any of my tanks so I can't give you any advice on care, although there are several aquarium websites I have bookmarked that might have info... I'll have to look later.

    As for names, I think Nephy came up with come cute ones!

    Re: I've Got Crabs!!!

    I read your post, because I was surprised as to why someone wold post about such a sensitive subject, especially in a forum with minors present. Then I read the posting and the crabs were not what I was expecting (whew!)

    Names,

    How about Louie and his brother Louie (Louie, Louie, we gotta go!)?

    Or how about Butter and Cracker?

    Or Sweetness and Cutie?

    Or Spot?

    Oh, well...
