    About a month and half ago I made a purchase for a clean up crew from E-Tropicals(which by the way was shipped excellent with no deaths but...)

    I have an emerald crab thats not so emerald
    Is it an albino?
    Has it not been given a proper diet?
    Has anybody seen this or have any idea why its white?

    Here is ICE ICE BABY

    I also have an emerald that lost its pinchers about 2 weeks after I receive my order.The emerald had adjusted by using her front legs in place of the pinchers and accepting seaweed sheets right out of the tongs that I feed her with.

    After some debate I think that I know who did it(yes,amateur photo editing)

    She is aggressive to all that comes to her side of tank.
    Anybody have any ideas what's going on or have any oddities too?

    They can come in all sorts of colors, green, blue, red, black, white... I wouldn't be worried about it. And the clawless one should grow her claws back :D.

    For real. I've had blue, white and green. DonnyHolland has a big red one. And when they get old they'll sometimes turn black.
