DWhatley;190717 said:The ONE food that we know has had limited success - and I do mean limited - 4 out of over 10,000 vulgaris in one cast (the 4 did settle but did not live to full adults) and only a very few of an Alaskan species that I am not familiar with. If you can find anything that approaches hatchling crabs (if you find some frozen (or other crustacean) or as part of something (not dried), please let me know), crab zoea was part of the diet in both cases and thought to be a contributing factor. I froze some crab eggs when I last was able to get berried crabs but have not used them.
If you are willing to part with some crab eggs . I would be glad to purchase some from you if the eggs end up being fertile. I would also be glad to send you a baby assuming the rarity of some surviving if that interests you. I willbe photographing and posting pics tomorrow when i remove the damsels. Please let me know.
