Re: Naples and Deltona orders

I've ordered from both places several times and have loved my order. One of the few places on line that you can get the larger turbo's for larger crabs.

Re: Crab de-stress questions

Just offer lots of special foods like scrambled eggs and other smelly goodies. If he is stressed, food temptations is a good way to get them to settle in. If it doesn't work, he may just need to molt or veg for a while.

Re: Dehydrating/Making your own hermie food??

I've been dehydrating hermit crab food for 5 years. If you are looking for a dehydrator I would pay more as my cheaper ones were a pain! Most of the cheaper ones have the fan on the top and it doesn't dry through all the racks as nice as the more expensive ones with the fan in the back. I use Excali...

Re: cleaning old shells

Set it in bucket, put half water and half vinegar, let it set few minutes, if it doesn't come off add more vinegar...best and safest way I know.....rinse and air dry

Re: "Communication" with my crabs!

I've done this for years with my crabs and they come right to the glass. Sometimes after a molt they are bashful again, but I just continue to do it each night and talk to them and sure enough it doesn't take long to get them back to coming to see me. Working with my Viola's now, and one is really m...

Re: Really? Can't they just behave?!

Re: Straws & E's so excited

:crabbigsmile: Yes I think that two equals a GANG in strawberry land. When my male was up the two of them literally rearranged the tank every night; I could not wait to get up and see which large objects they had decided to relocate. Now that he is down (3 weeks and counting) the Female is still act...

One year I just let grandkids draw on it (: It works good. when I put it on the back where I have heater I cut 2 strips about an inch wide and put on back corners, then when I p...

Re: Straws & E's so excited

I'd like to hear more about your strawberry's behavior. I am new to them, only had my two for about 6 weeks. One went under about a week after they came home. The other who is the female is so unlike any other crab I have or have heard described. She literally hates to hide; will not go under anyth...
