A few people have encouraged me to build a thread for my maritime lobster Larry! He came to me after I rescued him from some kids that had bought him from a grocery store and werent being so nice! After I "convinced" them to give him to me i kept him at my restaurants tank until my tank was ready to go! I put different colored bands on him so everyone knew he wasnt for dinner and now hes been home for almost 2 weeks! Ill share some pictures and progress on how he's doing and any info or advice is always welcome!!! Cheers!!

Following along , Larry is a whole vibe. I love that you were able to save him and give him a home , not a lot of people would do that, I wish him years of living the good life. Larry 4L
He better be around a long time! After all he has been through he deserves it! I have a 75 gallon tank for him but hope to get a bigger one in a year or 2 when i buy a house!!! Larry 4 Life!!! Lol! Love it

He’s been through it , but to have survived for so long I think you got one tough Larry. If you ever want to build him a cave that he can fully hide himself I would recommend buying one of those plastic black pots like from lowes and cutting it in half and weighing down with rocks / covering it in sand I’m sure Larry would accept, of course just my suggestion! I used to do this for snakes and they really appreciated having a spot to fully hide , it would make them feel secure and encourage running around more - I have no experience with lobsters though so lol
