Free Horseshoe Crabs

If you have a deep sandy bed, horseshoe crabs are great. Great for cleaning, and they swim too. Crabs are harvested from June - November and are 1-4 inches across. Larger crabs available upon request. Small crabs will shed once a month or so, larger crabs will shed less.

How big do they get? Are they reef safe? Sorry.. don't know anything about horseshoe crabs, besides finding them on the beach, but those guys are like 10"+ in size. Probably not a typical size for a home aquarium, right?

WOW!!! Requests!!!

May have spoke too soon, crabs are starting to bury in for winter. I got lucky today and have horseshoes and quahogs. Both need 4-5" sand beds.
Anyone with kids, save the sheds, dry, then spray with poly- U.
All interested send your number via a private reply.
