i have 4 tables and i live in louisiana right on the gulf of mexico. i still was busting out 2-3 softshells a week up until the cold weather hit a week or two ago. my tanks have been turned off for about 1 month now, but should be back on in about 1-2 months.

Eljapon, sorry, I can't help you out with any info on coatings to use on shedding tanks.  I'm sure that someone on this forum can, but the forum is very slow right now because were in the middle of winter in the central Atlantic area of the U.S. east coast.  Discussions should pick up in another couple of months.

Damian, take a look a the following link.

http://www.blue-crab.org/

It is about the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab and should answer your questions.
