OMG i can only imagine it would be awesome and you can keep lobsters together.They form a cute little chain gang and walk backwards, always watching thier back! Do you have room for this? i'll be back in 30minutes.

Lupin, please don't reply again if you are going to sa I should kill an innocint creature, I do not beleive in this at all, and I wish that ppl would stop thinking like that... I am sorry that get so offensive about this subject, but I just errr get angry when people abuse animals. Sorry. but again DON'T reply if you are gonna say to freakin kill this poor creature. I just want to get one lobster. I could feel that atleast thta one lobster can be happy. I'm not usually this defensive, just havin a bad day, so if anone has advice on keeping a lobster and nursing it back to health please tell me!!
Veganchick, do what you will but I stated my opinion enough. Each of us is entitled to our own opinion. There is no need for you to tell me what I can or cannot say. If you are willing to go through all this process for a lobster, then it's your choice. I'm done henceforth from this thread as you wish.

Well, they are tasty...

You may want to do a very low light tank for the benefit. You would need it in a very low traffic area as well.

And do you have any plans for filtration, stocking, setup, etc? It sounds like you know almost nothing and need some more research. Remember, only bad things happen fast.

And no offense, but I still don't get why you would want a Main Lobster. Purples or the like are much prettier, and the Mains are ugly and way too common.

I have actually done quite alot of research. and I have already said this a billion times, IDC if its ugly! I am doin it to find a lobster at a store (that would live a super sucky life) and give him a chance. I <3 all animals, and i really don't care too much what this lobster looks like, or how many there are. I just reaally wanna do this. Ok?

Id say the toughest part would be affording the stuff. The lobster will most likley have its spirit crushed and will no longer want to Walk around.

They put rubber bands on their claws cause when they dont have enough room the will fight. They only walk together when they Migrate in the Wild.

What do Maine Lobsters eat?
Mussels, clams, urchins and flounder. They may also eat other lobsters of their own kind...that is the reason why you may see rubber bands around their claws.



You Need a Good Relible Chiller which is Not going to be Quite. From what i learned on the TV is that lobsters live deep in the Ocean. So i dont know how well they are going to survive in an aquarium because I think they need a certain amount of PRESSURE to live.
Lobsters have compound eyes, that is, their eyes are made up of thousands of tiny eyes that are very sensitive to light.

What type of habitat do these lobsters prefer?
Rocky bottoms or dense seaweed.
