    Since he made his tunnel, he has been MIA!

    He hides all day and by the time I'm ready to go to bed he is still hiding. Of course I know he's alive because I always hear him digging away and food is gone by the time I wake up. I understand moon/halloween crabs are very shy. Hopefully he will come around. I guess that's just "crab life" for ya.

    They are nocturnel and if you didn't want a big water container, you get a little water dish and add a air stone (the kind they use in saltwater tanks) to the dish with the pump on the outside and the bubbles made cause humidity in the tank
