Re: Water Conditioner Brands

I personally don't use any water conditioner that has that slime/shine coat additive in it because crabs don't need that, and I'm not sure it's safe for them. I've been using this one for years. I also buy bottled water for my crabs though, and add this as a precaution. I never give them tap water. ...

I wish I had some vendor like that where I live. I'm almost out of my oak and maples leaves.

Re: New 90 gallon with vines and netting

Thanks for the compliments guys! The substrate I use is pure Eco Earth, and I have about 11 inches in there right now. I want to add more but then everything in my tank would become more crammed at the top. I love using pure EE because the tunnels hold better, the humidity holds better, and pure EE ...

New 90 gallon with vines and netting

Hey guys, I thought I post some pics of my 90 gallon with some renovations I did recently. I added the netting over the weekend. You can get a large recycled genuine fish net at Michael's crafts store, which is where I got mine. This tank also as three large vines and two moss pits in it. One moss p...

Re: Tall vs. Long Tanks

Ideally you will want to go with a tank that is both tall and long. Tall so that you can have deep sub for them to bury in, and long so that they can have ample amount of room to move around. Plus, you'll be able to put more decor in the tank without overcrowding the crabs. I started with a 40 gal b...

Re: HELP: Can large loud bubblers disturb/scare crabs?

My crabs were scarred of the bubblers at first but once they got use to it they would go into the pools and sit in the bubbles. You could attach an air flow control valve to turn down the bubbles a bit if you wanted to. I have valves on both of my pools. They're pretty cheap and you can find them at...

They will want her name as well. Report every sing of neglect and animal abuse that you've seen. That em...

Re: Substrate

I use pure EE aka coco fiber. I did switch to using a mixture of sand and EE but the sand dries the substrate out super fast and there was a huge risk of tunnel collapse, so I switched back to pure EE. Do you make the ee moist?

Re: Need advice ASAP please

They are most likely molting which is perfectly natural. This process can take months depending on the crab size. The best thing you can do is to leave them alone. Do not disturb them, and definitely do not go digging around looking for them. Here is the link to the section about molting. http://www...

Re: Petco employee stupidity

I had a bad experience with a Petco a few years ago. The tank conditions were terrible and they refused to listen to my advice so I called the corporate number and reported the store, as well as the clueless, negligent employees. I constantly checked up on that store to make sure things would change...
