Re: My Crab Clan and Tat

I know it's been like 2 months since I've been on, but my clan is doing great. My smaller E had a 3rd molt and finally changed shells. Now my 2 Es are both in tapestry shells. (I haven't collected the E and PP from my mom yet.) I see 4 of my crabs regularly now. Woody and Jessie changed shells. Jess...

Was it Calla who stacked an exoterra on top of a 40B?

Re: My Crab Clan and Tat

So Rex (now called Jessie) switched shells to a smaller Jade turbo and Woody took up Jessie's larger banded jade turbo. Woody pulls way back into the shell. It's funny to me. I'd say Woody is 1/2 the size of Jessie.

Re: article on 3-D printed shells

I saw these on pinterest but didn't realize that they were made on a 3D printer and not made of glass. I want one for my HCs.

Re: Getting started - cleaning the tank?

Just a word of caution on lids, make sure the lid you're buying is the one meant for your tank (Aqueon, marineland, aga etc) or double check that the actual dimensions actually match those of your tank. Different manufacturers have slightly different measurements for the same "size" tank. Crabby sin...

Re: How much fresh air?

I concur crabs love bubblers. I never caught crabs in the pools or saw much evidence that they were being used until I added them. My original pools with bubblers were dollar store food containers, about 2x3x2" and I had no issues. I use one air pump and a splitter. Whole set up came in under $10. (...

Re: Getting started - cleaning the tank?

I'm not sure which brand aquarium you have but Petsmart has some nice Aqueon Versa 20 gal (24") glass kids for $20. If you belong to their rewards system there are coupons that come out from time to time. For water pools I use dollar store bins with canvas ramps. I think they were 4/$1. I have mine ...

Re: My Crab Clan and Tat

Well the 2 PPs are great. Buzz disappeared so I'm thinking molting again. He was checking out the shell shop and shells plus hanging out in the salt pool.

Re: My Crab Clan and Tat

My temps are finally getting over 80 (they haven't been under 75 but the tank is taking a while to warm up) and I noticed my 2 larger PPs out all afternoon. So fun! My son decided Rex is Jessie 2 since the crab is female. We named Mom's crabs Bo Peep (the female E) and Rex (the PP who seemed not to ...

And Buzz shucked his old shell but I don't know which shell he took since I didnt count or pay attention to exactly which shells are out. Thinking maybe a Japanese Land Snail shell? (I don't see him anywhere right now. Never mind, it's just an extra shell....panic over. Crabby since 8/13/14 Es Buzz ...

They must love it. I never see them anymore, too many places to hide BUT in the morning the pools are full of Poo and the food's been trampled and decimated.
