Goodbye, Pinchy

At 30 months, she either died from old age (average life span 3 - 5 years); a lack of iodine in the water (I only add iodine during quarterly water changes. Some experts recommend a drop per 10 US gallons per week.); an infection brought on by a broken leg 2 months back; a bad molt, or, most likely, a combination of two or more possibilities.

Yeah, I miss that critter too.
When she's cranky, she'll swat the fish around with her armored claws. They learned to steer clear of her when she's in one of her moods.

I still haven't decided what to do with her tank. The fish are still in it.
