@MO: That's really cool. Do you have a sorority of them or each male/female in a 15 gallon?

Your crab is amazing. Pretty color as well.
thanx bettalover..and yea glad u understand how much of space i'd need if i had to put each fish in a 15 gallon tank :/...

That would be pretty cool and really crazy. You might as well be rich. I guess it works best for owners that keep them as pets.

@MO: how many bettas do you have?

The results are in!

Reading your signature of all the crazy fish you have, shiva, I'm already curious as to how you fit all that in your house! Do you keep some outside, since it's warm enough where you live?

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I have my bettas in 1+ gallons. @ males in 20s (because they were empty.) and 2 in 10s, and females in 29. some in 1 gallons, because my desk has a computer, and I don't like divided tank xD I don't think tank size matters.... well, a little, as long as you have a 1+ gallon (breeders can use jars) and keep up with cleaning :3 cleaning is MORE important than a HUGE tank for one betta. (although if I won the lottery had a nice house one room would be the "large tanks with bettas" room) let's drop the "tank size controversy" in this thread that does not concern bettas nor tank size and love the crab :p

the last picture of the crab looks like "noooo no more pictures!!!" xD he's cute though. I like crab meat >.> but I couldn't cook live animals myself. or break their necks, or chop their heads off, or drown them.....or boil them alive.... I'm a "give it to me raw and dead or cooked, but not alive!" person =D often then not you find minnows, leaches, and shrimp here. I'm actually going to test out in an empty 20 (eventually) if minnows, shrimp and plants from a lake can survive tank live. but the tank has to be established and I have to have patience that day :) dare I find a goldfish >:(

Beautiful! I love crabs! I really want to get one, but my moms against anything outside of fish, rabbits, dogs, and chickens.

Your a lucky lulu! I wish I could find pretty red crabs like yours!

My grandpa has crawdad's that like in the rivers, streams, and creeks by his ranch, but my tiger oscar ate the 3 we caught the other year.

lol oscars do that xD the store had a saucer sized guy. he scared my dog.

We never had any critters near edmonton. but at least here (although it is manmade) the lake has an assortment of interesting critters. what are the critters in the plants, I wonder? :/ creepy looking. xD

Oscars are poos! lol!

I could catch all kinds of stuff at my grandpa and my aunts horse. Snakes (water and land), frogs, lizards, salamanders, crawdad, minnows, and lots more!

I love love love your crab! I can't get enough of looking at him!
