Re: My tank

I think the setup is beautiful, I love front opening tanks and personally think they far superior than conventional glass aquariums.

Have you had much issue with flooding using a mister?

Re: Hermit Crab Vivarium w/ live plants, 101 gallons

I think it turned out awesome. I love the plants you have in there! :)

Cslatheas are such a pain, and hate tap water. Be interesting to sed how they'll turn out in the tank. They so finicky!


How many crabs do you have in there Sugar?

Re: New Tank Mates

Deoends on the tank size, can it support more crabs? What are the size of your current crabs? IMO, all species get along well, and generally require the same requirements. Exotics do better in higher temps, and more stable conditions (heat/humidity); and seem to live longer with UVB supplementation ...

Re: New - Water Questions

Prime is safe to be overdosed, and according to seachem (the manufacturer of prime) it can be overdosed by 5x. When overdosing, you're really just wasting product rather than harming the crabs. Prime does wear off in terms of binding to nitrogenous bases (like ammonia and chloramine) so its best dos...

Thats so strange! You’d think they’d hate being stepped on and such. Legs all in their eyes lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Yes, but at the same time no.

Re: Awwwww

In the wild, they naturally hunt out small spaces and cram themselves into there, like clowns in a car. I got some pics of them, but lost them when my hard drive fried - and lost all the pics I tool of wild caught aussies. Its why I made my 3d background with a tunnel and cave, as they love to cram ...

Re: My updated crabitat!

I think it looks awesome. The only thing I would suggest is getting some more levels in there and climbing stuffs, but yoy mentioned its a WIP. :) (A slate tile cut to size could balance on the ruler lip (fab idea btw) and could offer a nice level for them to hang out on.

Re: Clearing some confusion [LONG!]

I wouldn't stress too much, and I'm sure you're doing the best for your crabs. :) But in saying, I do understand the concern, as I often tried to make sure I was doing the right thing until I got my footing on the matter.

Re: What to do after a molt?

I just give a balanced diet, maybe at most some fragrant foods (both nice and not so nice) as they are usually drawn to the smells. :)

Re: I cant get the humidity to rise in my tank :(

What do you currently have as a lid? Do you use moss? Bubblers in the pools? Eco earth to create moisture?

Edit: http://hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/ ... hp?t=92544 this link may help and is worth a read if you haven't done so already. :)
