New crabs are not doing well

Sadly FOUR have died. A ruggie died on the 2nd or 3rd day and tonight 3 more have died.  Very frustrating but not that unusual.  I haven’t purchased crabs in such a long time and this part is hard.  I’ll be lucky if I’m left with even half when its all said and done.  I wanted to take some pics of the viola out of its shell like I have done in the past but its too late and I don’t have the patience for handling a smelly lifeless crab tonight.


  1. Stress for one but they are not eating at ALL and I’m running out of things to feed. I’ve tried honey, peanut butter, silversides, fruit, brine shrimp, dried flowers and some special sand stuff.

    Its so heartbreaking.
