I was havin a chat to a bloke in a seafood shop today about London's fish markets and when mentionin live food he directed me to a chinese cash an carry which was a quality find!!!

Never mind lookin at the tanks, i managed to get meself some foot long josh sticks (3 per pack) for 51pence!!! Gunna start sendin smoke signals across London!!! :lol:

Anyway here's a few pic's, some whoppa crabs bigga than dinner plates!! Unfort they dont get small stuff other than crayfish, clams, cockles, mussels an lobster :frown: To give you some perspective the tanks are about a foot deep.....

:?: One question thou....how bigga crab can a fully grown bimac handle? I mean when your feedin them do you jus make sure whatever you feed em isnt bigger than the octo, or should they be major smaller :?:

:lol:

they are them shell things in picture 16, from what i could see of them in the shell they looked a bit snail like, so thought maybe mollusc's? wonder wether i could feed them. end up with some decent shells afterwards aswell!!

Only thing is i'd prob have to check their water for copper before buyin anythin
