It is my understanding that rank peelers do not eat.

At what stage are you putting the crabs into the tanks?

That's my understanding also --- if they are in the 'red line' stage, you will only have them in the holding trap a day or two anyway.

Juan Carlos...

Do you know the proper way to tell if a crab is getting ready to molt?
Are your crabs eating each other, dying, or both?
What is your water temperature?
Is your water salty, brackish, or fresh?
Do you have a closed or open shedding system?

peelers  dont need to eat  thats why you should always put only ripe crabs in tank if you put realy green peelers in tank thell be to weak to shed or they can even be your eaters

The system is still in the planning fase. But it'll be a flow through system with brackish water. The temperatures I'm not sure exactly but they must be above 20 centigrades I think because the location is a tropical one (central mexico)

I've read that red sign-crabs don't eat but I'm not sure about pink or white line-crabs that's why I asked. Is it economically convinient to feed pinks and white before they shed?, will that make them heavier when they shed? what about those with no sign?

Thank you for your help and sorry i took too long to answer I don't have continuos access to internet right now ( soon I will).

  I think cw4340 is right . White sign crabs will get abrasions on their swim fins and die of infections before they shed. they cannot live in the tanks 3 or 4 weeks in a weaken state so no use to feed them. only keep red and pink sign crabs no use to load floats with others.

If you don't feed them they will loose a lot of weight won't they? or they would delay the shedding for lack of energy? I'm just guessing  anyone knows?
