Re: Land crabs: Do they all need to be kept in colonies?

I did look into that, thanks soilentgringa. :) If anyone was lurking and curious about the answer: Found more information, still limited, pertaining to Halloween and Rainbow crabs(the most common type to keep it seems).

Re: Land crabs: Do they all need to be kept in colonies?

I've been looking at Rainbow and Halloween care the most(as they are most commonly kept as pets), and from what I can tell a lot of them are kept solo as they are more territorial than Hermit Crabs.

Re: Mixing Species- possible issues

I only have E's and PP's (From what I know) but the only aggression I've seen is PPs going after other PPs. :? never seen any other kind of aggression. the crabs getting stuck in exo makes so much sense though, i've had that happen a few times. come across them during a deep clean, help them out of ...

Minimum tank size for MHC?

My dad is thinking of expanding the pond (AGAIN!!) but he wants to make a 'Tadpole' section, where just a little bit of water trick...

Plexi glass?

so I've been looking at different lid types and I thought I'd get a plexi glass lid but I read on a couple of places that you need to cut holes for the lamps. is that true? If it is, I think I'll be going with a different type of lid.. haha


anyway, Any feedback is appreciated.
