She's Gett'n Big

Postby Nec » Mon Jan 11, 2010 7:45 pm

A couple weeks ago, I got a great deal on 5 golf ball sized turbo snails. My other ones lasted almost two years so I figured why not. I acclimated them and as a week passed, I noticed empty shells one by one. "Sally", my sally lightfoot crab has gotten big enough to crave,catch and eat snails. Instead of going through the trouble of catching not only her, but 3 other crabs as well (unknown sp), I have decided to go snail...less. Maybe one day I will get around to trapping or ripping everything out of the tank but not now. I think my crabs are more entertaining to watch than snails are. :-):

Will Sally be expecting that sort of treat on a regular basis?

Nope. I will not be giving her a "snail snack" here and there. :-):

She does great at picking up food that settles to the bottom. I don't mind going snail less for a while to see how it goes. That's what we have magnetic cleaners for. :-):

I will say this though... The instant I find out a fish was taken by her hands....err...claws, she will be dangled in front of some seagulls on a string. :dev:
