Re: I Went a Little Shell Crazy

They love murex. And it's far more affordable than other, size-equivalent shell types that are available at that size.

Re: Enrichment Toy?

I have a bird treat ball that I got for my guinea pigs, but they never really got into it. This thread is making me realize it might be a great way to make the crabs work for some of their food. The treat toy: https://www.vbirdshop.com/foraging-toys/buffet-ball-foot-toy I also think of regularly swa...

Re: Crayfish...

fishlore's a good start. petshrimp.com and skfaquatics.com also have crayfish subforums, perhaps with a higher density of experienced keepers than fishlore.

Re: Best large/jumbo shell seller?

I've used Napels, and I've also liked U.S. Seashell co for bulk buys, now that most of my crabs are well beyond "jumbo."

Re: do your crabs seem to enjoy watching you?

Mine seem to enjoy watching the events in ApartmentLand. I think of it as environmental enrichment.

Re: Bioactive Terrarium

I’m on my phone, so I can’t use the emoji where the smiley face is slapping his arm up and down. That is NOT TRUE @jclee!! My isopods bred OUT OF CONTROL in all of my tanks. They were eating all of the crabs food, and at night when I would go in to look at the tanks it was all isopods. The crabs lo...

Re: Axolotls and Hermit Crabs in the same room?

A less expensive alternative to chillers, depending on your ambient temperature, is to hang fans above the tank. Increased evaporation cools down the temperature. Again, whether this works depends on how hot your apartment gets.

Re: Gecko Time!

I love all of your adoption stories, and congratulate you for taking such good care of reptiles in need. This is Roadtrip, so named for the distance that we drove to pick him up, after learning that he needed rehoming via Craigslist. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180331/8ddadeafc233326278ca3909...

Re: Bioactive Terrarium

Well...if you really want my input...be careful. With that kind of set up you might have a hard time controlling your isopods. They love leaf litter...I'm still battling catching isopods out of all of my crabitats. It's been a battle! An uphill one... I wouldn't use a fogger, or real soil...but tha...
