    So I posted in the ID this forum a little bit ago because I didn't know what the bit orange thing was on my Pom Pom Crab...

    I don't really know what to do. I would like to have pom pom crab babies though... Suggestions?

    I also have a female with a red belly. I don't necessarily think she is pregnant but just a way to tell the males and females apart.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Unfortunately raising crab larvae is next to impossible. Free fish food.

    Also next to impossible to find a stockpile of little anemones for all of the babies. (Sorry, I had to do it.)

    Ha. This has now got me wondering. I personally don't have the answer, but I bet someone among us knows where all the little anemones come from. Maybe they will chime in.
