So, I am unsure if I want to mix my Straws with my PP's. I know several people have said they do well together, I just hate to mess with what has worked so far. Any thoughts on this? I have gotten rather paranoid about mixing any together at all.
I keep my perlatus (straws) with compressus(Easterns) and Coenobita(PPs), I have one Straw who has a Compressus as a best friend. The size difference between them makes it funny to watch. The Compressus is usually on top of the Perlatus. Perlatus in my tank seem to be very gentile however they are not scared of any of the other crabs. I do put a bit extra salt in my water dish now that i have them but the fresh and salt water are close to each other so any other crabs have easy access to dulete the water. I do know that ELHC also has straws in with other species. I think you will be fine. Maybe give it a try and have a back up plan.
Thank you for the input, I will give it a go... and keep an extra tank nearby :-) I had to move my Compressus' to their own tank because they are driving the Purple Pinchers insane LOL. Sue do you keep the brunies separate or are they in there too? Just curious :-)
kitty: Not much activity in my tank. One morning I got up and it looked like a tornado went through it. Water bowls tumbled, food dishes upside down. Fixed it all up and have been waiting eversince. ! Nothing. DARN !!
