Porcelain Crab babies?

I just caught a couple of my porcelains crabs holding each other belly to belly. It didnít look aggressive and they amicably left after a few minutes and just hung out next to each other.

So does that mean there will be some babies soon? Is it at all possible that any will survive?

Iíve had the limpets I got with my package reproduce a few times now, but never a crab. Lol

Very possible.....with the stable natural environment the Package gives....I have had reports of the same propagation many times over the years! Good job Mama!
