Wow, I haven't been on here in so long...
Sandy has long since gotten better, and hopefully that other crab's pincher has too! :)

I have a lot of extra shells, and most of the time I just put them in a basket as a room decoration... it adds a nice touch. :wink:

The crabs will move out of them if they don't like them.
There isn't a guarantee that the hermit crabs will like them.
With pet hermit crabs, the crabs are probably a lot safer and feel a lot safer than in the wild- less sunlight, less predators, more humidity, hiding places, etc.

You are providing your hermit crabs with natural shells too, right?

Fiddler crabs need a slope-with-water landscape in their 'tat, and higher humidity than land hermit crabs.

Should I treat Sandy, or ISO her?
I have an extra KK and 10 gallon tank... should I put honey and salt water on her pincher, or is it not that bad?

Sandy is so small I don't know if I can do the treatments to her pincher, mainly because it is smaller than my finger & she is shy, do you think I should do anything?

That's good that he's looking better! :angel7:

That looks a little like Sandy's BP after a recent molt:

She's still acting normal, climbing and active and eating, but has that weird patch on her BP. She is a small/medium PP. Infection? :freak:

1. You can order it from the Hermit Crab Addiction Store, or for a better price Mountain Rose Herbs.
2. Yes, Spirulina is a type of seaweed.
3. Yes, several other types of seaweed are safe for hermit crabs, just check the Safe Food List. Or the Hermit Crab Addiction Store.

Dragonfly Exoskeletons?

I find a LOT of molted exoskeletons from dragonfly nymphs here. I am wondering if they are edible to hermit crabs? Thanks! [smilie=smile.gif]
