My clan

It's been ages since I've posted over here! I can't even remember if I posted any pics of the 3 adoptees I got this summer. I finally named them and can identify them (for now, it's all based on their shells atm, so we'll see how it goes lol) All 4 are huge! I miss having little teeny crabs! But the...

Any experienced African Clawed Frog owners?

Anyone owned one? I have one that needs a tank upgrade and I have about a million and one questions, and the frog forum isn't helping me out...
I'm desperate for any help to say the least.

Re: Shell locked

Hermit crabs are generally very weird, and this could be his "normal" lol. I can't see an issue unless he stops moving and doesn't eat. Otherwise I agree with SG and if I were you I would focus on getting some more shells and a larger tank :)

Re: Shell locked

Hi there! First off, I'd like to suggest a larger aquarium. A tank that size with 5 crabs is very overcrowded. This can cause aggression and molting difficulties. You should also think about getting some more shells. 6 isn't that many, especially with 5 crabs. What kind of shells are you offering? T...

Re: Oreo snacking on a walnut!

When I had Es they loved walnuts! I'd find walnuts everywhere.

Getting back in the groove! (+ a question)

After thinking things over following two crab deaths, I've decided to get my tank back to par and hopefully get some new crabs here soon. I considered calling it quits but I've put so much time and money into the crabbies that I don't think I could bring myself to do it :) Plus I'd miss hearing then...

Re: Relocating tank

I know it's a pain to wait, but you could wait until they come up and then take a day to transfer everything to the new tank and keep the crabs in a small isolation until you have the sub and decorations in...

Re: Bad day...

Now that I think about it, I guess it's been quite a while longer than I had thought since the last tank clean up. It just slips my mind and I never get around to it. I was planning on doing water changes today. I guess I went a day too late (I'm assuming this was all recent because I haven't smelle...

Bad day...

It's been a bad day for crabbie land over here to say the least :( I've been gathering some things for a tank renovation, and I was about to head out to walmart to get the last few things. Then I peeked in the tank to see what the crabbies were up to. Well, as it turns out, only one was up to anythi...

Good point, I guess it's good I'm not planning on throwing them in the tank.

Pseudoscorpions?!

Only because I'm curious, not because I'm looking into... In light of finding a pseudoscorpion in the bathroom the other day (which I had NO idea were a thing, I didn't even know anything that looked like a scorpion existed in Ohio.), I'm curious if they'd be safe in crab tanks. They eat mites and o...

Re: Humidity Help

What kind of lid do you have? Is it mesh?
