    I wanted crabs for my new tank and there are very few that are fully aquatic and fewer that tolerate soft water. In fact the only one I found was the panther crab. A very cool species I found through Elite Inverts. The first 3 I ordered were DOA thanks to a blizzard that held up the shipment. I ordered 2 more and they came healthy. That was 3 weeks ago and I hadn't seen them since. I was still putting food in for them that is high in calcium just in case but I lost hope. Apparently they are very skiddish cause I found where one was living last week and just today the other one came out of hiding and they are eating and seem happy Though I wont be comfortable until I see them successfully shed. I still don't have pictures but will post if and when I get some.

    Does anyone else have any experience with them? In my research they seem to be hit or miss.
