Marmokreb observed catching/eating young

Most of the time, lucy will just wave her claws and scare her babies off but just a few minutes ago I've watched her capture and eat one of them. I may not have a Marmokreb population problem after all.

Long time later, lots of krebs

Lucy seems to be better by herself. I now have many that are almost community amongst themselves. I have seen them climb over each other, and one time, grab onto another's leg just to get in the right position. Then they sat like that. However, I put one of the larger ones in with Lucy, and she killed her in a couple weeks. So, she is in solitary now.
Here is a picture of her after molting.
