Kind of more crazy than usual, I mean. At the international market, I was stockpiling my cart full of produce and getting odd looks at the quantity I was amassing (it's for my parrots), I happened over to the seafood section, always on the look out for something novel for my hermit crabs and I noticed that they had blue crabs on sale. I went over and took a closer look. They were really fresh looking, I looked closer and realized that some were still alive. I don't really know what I was thinking, or if I was thinking at all, but I found the fiestiest one and picked up the tongs and went to pick him up. He grabbed onto another crab's leg and tore it off the other crab, but I think that one was already dead. Into the shopping bag he went, a single crab at about $.80. I wonder what the cashier thought... I put him in a bucket of ice water and I emptied a 5 gallon that I had sitting around and set it up in my bathroom. I couldn't think of a cooler place in my house besides the basement but couldn't put it down there because I didn't want my parents to find out about this because they'd spazz out. My bathroom smells like a fishing dock... And it's weird to not have privacy... but whatever. So it's on the tile floor and I have a fan running over it to keep it as cool as possible. I used Oceanic at half strength and I have a Whisper HOB filter running on the tank and I have no idea if it'll do anything to help cycle since it's been running in a fresh water tank until just then. Anyways, I put the crab in and it seems angry and scared, but I don't blame it. He looked a little hungry so I put in a piece of squid and I'm guessing he ate it because it's not there anymore. I know I shouldn't have put food in there to keep the bioload down until a bacteria colony gets established in the filter but it was hard to deny him. I found a guy in my town with a salt water tank and he's going to hook with up with filter squeezings so I can seed my filter. I probably won't have the nerve to ask but maybe he'll offer me some live sand to seed the playground sand I just put in. If not, Craigslist or a LFS will suffice. If it survives the next few days, I'll put him in a 10 gallon. Then I'll see about what I can do about a larger tank. Maybe one day I'll have an aquarium stocked with livestock from the grocery store... He has really pretty blue coloring but it's not visible in the pics. The tank now has sand in it, it's taking an infuriatingly long time to settle.
