. . . Seafood Menagerie . . .
The tank is now home to 5 goldfish (feeders), 3 red claw crabs, and one blue lobster. The one male crab is already picking fights with the lobster, but they just seem like territorial disputes. The lobster has its favorite spot already and the asshole crab keeps coming up and pissing him off. Luckily, the larger lobster just keeps the crab at a distance from its face. Poor crab must feel so inferior with those short arms and small pinchers. I have already handled the male crab and been pinched by him. He pulled a small piece of my skin off and ate it! I must have been tasty cuz he kept trying to pull my skin off! Thankfully, he is still quite small and probably won't pass 1.5". His pinch is less painful than a paper cut, but I think I will wear rubber gloves to deter him from trying to eat my fingers; I need them. Another male crab will help him vent his frustration out. The females don't seem to want to argue. He ventures the tank looking for a fight.
