Thank you :) It was very exciting indeed! I don't know when it will happen again, but I'll make sure to be properly prepared by then :D

Re: Photo shoot!

Beautiful crabs, and so big! Nova is really cool, those legs go on forever lol! A bit creepy though, he reminds me of a spider ( I have a bit of spider phobia )

Re: Baby hermit crabs or.. what??

I have to check the gender of the two small ones, but my guess is that Splinter here is the one that had the eggs.. Look how small she is! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170403/40b98c7b700ee3c6fb87921ef542874f.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170403/67f1f28f04e8a8e850c82ef3a6126036.jpg

Re: Baby hermit crabs or.. what??

In salt dish? Pretty good chance they're zoea. If your serious about breeding, check out curlz's blog... And if you pm me, I might have a viola paper about larval rearing, I dunno. If you want me to look, I can see what I got. Of course there's Renroc's fab thread too. :) Thanks! You'll get a pm, a...

Re: Baby hermit crabs or.. what??

Yes, they were in the salt dish. I discovered them too late, there wasn't any movement that I could see. Even if they'd been alive I wouldn't have been able to care for them right now, as I don't have the equipment and knowledge that would be needed... Anyways, I guess my setup is to their liking th...

Re: Baby hermit crabs or.. what??

Let more of an expert on here about zoea say for sure. Mine have never had any, although I'm pretty sure one had eggs once. But they sure look like it. Makes sense since it left them in saltwater. From what I'v read its insanely hard to breed hermit crabs and keep the young alive. I thought they lo...

Baby hermit crabs or.. what??

Hey guys! I have a mystery :shock: This morning when i went to freshen up my viola crabitat, I found (dead) zoea in the salt water. LOTS of zoea. The thing is, I have three violas in that crabitat, one is a medium male (from what I can see, I've checked him twice) and 2 are small (haven't checked if...

Re: Caught in the act

I love the way a coveted piece of food is snatched and taken away! To our crabs, there really is no difference in behavior living in a crabitat vs living in the wild -- if there is something desirable, they go all Mine! Mine! Mine! :lol: I both love It and hate it :D it's so cute, but I know that I...

Re: New ruggies!

Donatello, the middle ruggie, have changed into a lovely murex (?) shell :) http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/06/07/30afb33fc65aa64cfc6761319d80d6f4.jpg And little Ruby thinks he's the boss of the tank!

Re: HUGE lesson learned

Congrats on the molts! That is quite a long time for a small molt, lucky you didn't go digging :)

I've had 1 small/medium down since february, but I doubt that she will surface again... :/
