Re: 2 of my crabs are too stubborn to molt!

Yep I did just that wodesorel :) UTH is a 22 wattage and it was the largest one that would fit my entire back. I've also placed a towel over it to keep the heat in. Half of my lid is also covered in foil. I've done the best as I can :( This is a 10 gallon tank only so a ceramic one isnt the best opt...

Re: 2 of my crabs are too stubborn to molt!

?? I don't understand the high and low 70 you're saying. It is 72 on good days. I have trouble getting the right conditions in my tank and have gone through a ton of questions and trials in here and in my tank. So far I have a UTH as my heater source. It wasn't supposed to be that way but since my b...

Re: 2 of my crabs are too stubborn to molt!

My temp and humidity fluctuates over time. On good days, my temp is 72F with humidity there as well. The two that have molted was during winter time so they also had to deal with these tough conditions...

Re: 2 of my crabs are too stubborn to molt!

1. What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? Sand and EE. Around 2.5 inches. 2. Do you have gauges in the tank to measure temperature and humidity? If so, where are they located and what temperature and humidity do they usually read? Have an accurite gauge now that's located in...

2 of my crabs are too stubborn to molt!

I've had Bunny and Chestnut since April (more or less). And during that time they haven't molted for me yet. I've bought two other ones n May and both of them have molted for me successfully. What I don't understand is how the other two are comfortable enough to molt for me and survive through the p...

Re: Chirping

For mine, I would have to say they chirp to communicate to each other and/or are calling out to each other. Came to this conclusion when I caught one of them chirping in front of another one. They weren't fighting or anything. He was just chirping at him... XD and since he was sitting on the cholla ...

Chirping

My crabs periodically make chirping sounds. I keep reading here that when they make those sounds it's not a good sign. But whenever I look in on them making those noises, they're nowhere near each other. Is it possible that they're just doing it for fun? XD
