Tall or long tank?

I saw some people who had the tall hexagon/just plain tall tanks. They look interesting. I want to get a new tank for the tank at my mom's house when I have more money, right now it's just a 10 gallon. I either want to get a 20 gal or a tall tank- not sure what sizes they come in. What do you all th...

I had him in Iso for 3 days with a bunch of shells larger smaller and the same size, put him with shells in a small area, and I've tried putting him in some. I understand i may be causing stress but I'm getting fr...

Little grey mites

I looked on the mite page and they didn't match any. They aren't food mites because I already have those.

How long can a crab live?

I know it will be quite impossible unless they get hundreds of babies, record their babies, and wait like 50 years to see the average years they lived, but how long do we think? Carol Ann Ormes had her crabs Jon and Cate, Cate lived 32 years but I don't know about Jon. She got them in 1978. They're ...

How do I find a deceased crab?

The "smell" is in the tank but all my hermies that are currently up aren't dead.

I have 6 down and any of them could be molting.

Crossing my fingers its not Shelby (sorry other crabs...)

I didn't know where else to put this. If it's wrong feel feel to move it

Re: Taking shells from the beach

I went down to Hilton head, (It's like 45 minutes ahead, it's a shoe shapes island really easy to spot on a map of SC) and there were a bunch of shells but I decided against it because there were hundreds of marine hermies all over and there weren't a lot of shells

Re: ANT INFESTATION HELP ASAP PLEASE

I get ants popping in this time of year too. I always clean up their scent trails (vinegar water) and then put a new coat of vaseline around the bottom rim of the tank (and on any wires leading in) to keep them out. If I remember, I do this before they become a problem. If you're not careful the an...
