woopderson Posted December 21, 2014 Report Share Posted December 21, 2014 I noticed that the males in my CRS tank were swimming around like crazy, so I decided to see if I could spot the molt. To my surprise, I saw a female pinned on her side with males picking at her AND trying to mate. I have never seen that kind of aggression for the chitin. I netted the female, and put her in a breeder box. I feel so bad for the female. The males were so aggressive they ate a segment from two of her legs. She laid on her side for a while, and can now stand (albeit lopsided). She is even eating! Here's hoping she makes a full recovery. Has anyone seen that kind of aggression for the chitin? Is this a result of not enough food? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
