@ladybug thanks! It was very emotional. :)
ladybug15057 - 22 May 2016, 02:46 am
I can imagine Emma! I remember my first mothers day, and still today I get emotional with my daughter!
ladybug15057 - 22 May 2016, 02:46 am
Now I have grandparents day too!! #D
emmac350 - 22 May 2016, 09:31 pm
@ladybug twice the holidays! You've made it in life, I guess. :) I'm definitely very blessed, he's a great baby.

ladybug15057 - 26 Jun 2016, 04:11 am
I understand Emma, why I have a bogus address online. Can never be too careful! ;)
emmac350 - 16 Aug 2016, 10:43 am
I GOT THE CRABS BACK FROM THE SITTERS! Sorry for caps spam, I'm excited. Benny and Rack are for sure alive. :)
ladybug15057 - 19 Aug 2016, 09:00 am
Happy to hear they are alive! How exciting, now you're a Happy Crabber again!! :D

Congrats on the reunion of your crabs! Hopefully they have settled down well back into your tank.
emmac350 - 01 Sep 2016, 02:11 am
They've been in the same tank the whole time but they seem to be enjoying themselves with more fresh food now.
emmac350 - 20 Sep 2016, 12:31 pm
Benny's acting weird and I'm afraid she might be sick or dying and I'm so upset right now...
emmac350 - 22 Sep 2016, 01:34 pm
Thank goodness, she was bizarre for 24 hours then got back to normal. That was scary...
ladybug15057 - 26 Sep 2016, 06:40 am
Weird actions? Acting bizarre? When did she molt last?
emmac350 - 27 Sep 2016, 08:14 am
She came up mid-August. She seemed to have balance issues after eating greens from the top of the strawberry.
emmac350 - 27 Sep 2016, 08:14 am
Over the course of about 6 hours after she ate them I found her laying on her side on the substrate and
emmac350 - 27 Sep 2016, 08:15 am
upside down on one of the bridges. She was making no attempts to right herself in either case. I put her in the salt
emmac350 - 27 Sep 2016, 08:15 am
water bowl to soak and she climbed out after 10 minutes or so, then I put her in the food bowl before I went to bed.
emmac350 - 27 Sep 2016, 08:15 am
The next morning she was acting a little more normal, if a little slow, and she was 100% within about 24 hours.
ladybug15057 - 02 Oct 2016, 02:43 am
Happy to hear she's back to normal!
ladybug15057 - 24 Oct 2016, 07:20 am
Sure been quiet! Hope all is well! Happy Halloween everybody! Be safe!!
ladybug15057 - 14 Nov 2016, 11:55 am
For the past 2 weeks, any notices I am getting via e-mail from HCP has been going to my spam folder?
ladybug15057 - 14 Nov 2016, 11:55 am
Is this happening to anybody else? I do mark not spam, but it continues to happen?
emmac350 - 17 Nov 2016, 02:04 pm
Depends on the email you use (gmail vs. hotmail vs. yahoo). I don't get notifications except for PMs so I don't get many
aussieJJDude - 26 Dec 2016, 02:37 pm
