Sorry for the lack of updates lately been a little busy. She got bored of frozen scallops and shrimp so back to an only crab diet for now. Still doing really well though. As of tomorrow she will be in my care for exactly 2 months!

I would also like to add that I have a mysid shrimp colony breeding inside the aquarium lol. They came in on the live rock I added when I first set up the aquarium and now there is so many of them.

They seem too small. I wouldnt fully rule it out though for the adult mysids but I have never seen her eat them. But they do breed readily so that would be really good if she did eat some haha.

It has been almost 3 months since she has been in my care! Still doing well, she will accept frozen but will not eat a lot of it. I mainly use it as a supplemental feed when I can’t get crabs due to the weather near me recently. I have not seen her eat any of the mysid shrimp. I attached a video of her eating hopefully it works. Let me know if there are any problems loading it.
