The crabs have become our little pets in the pavilion. We have spotted a total of six now but there may be more. There are also two catfish (although we noticed today the biggest one which is the size of a hand may have been the crab's lunch at some point. There was another catfish but that was definitely part of the crabs lunch.) Each day we keep a diary for Venice in Peril on the 'action' and to record the development of the environment as a natural habitat within the tank.
Only four of our crabs have names: Ruskin, Wolfgang, Donatella (after our landlady, not the designer) and Pizza. The other two newbies have yet to be identified.
We'd like to say thank you to Matt from the previous group for his commentary on the crab's emotions in the Tank diary. His diary entries describing the crab's moods provided a lot of entertainment;
'Ruskin looks happy, and excited'
It is literally like a soap opera with these guys!
