Re: Favorite Online Shops for Hermit Crab Food

We have a list of recommended vendors, I'll find the link. We are working on updating. Hermies Kitchen, Claw of the Wild, Happy Hermies, Crabotanicals are all good stores. It looks like two of the sites you mention are no longer active. We could really use that updated list. @NatetheGreat Right now...

Re: Favorite Online Shops for Hermit Crab Food

Mine LOVE everything from hermies kitchen! I got 30 samples to weed out favorites... I cant even tell what their favorites are because they scarf everything in the tank! Everything was packaged very nicely you can tell they put effort into every phase of the product... Any was here is what they sen...

Favorite Online Shops for Hermit Crab Food

Hey everyone! So I have run into a little dilemma... I have been ordering from the Etsy shop, DeliciouslyCrabby. My crabs have loved their food, and it has been what I have been feeding them for quite sometime now. The issue is that I can no longer find this Etsy store, I believe it shut down. :cry:...

Re: Gutter Hood Light D.I.Y.

I think it's an awesome idea for non-heat lights! I would not recommend it for use with any kind of heating bulb or any type of bulb that produces excess heat for fear of the plastic melting. If your lights are hot to the touch, don't run them while they're sitting directly on the glass - it can ca...

Re: Gutter Hood Light D.I.Y.

Can't wait to see the finished project!!! How do you maintain humidity in your tank? I haven't had a problem with humidity yet since I just recently set up this tank and the substrate has kept moisture which helps with that. If it does get low, I occasionally mist the substrate and the moss pit I h...

Re: Gutter Hood Light D.I.Y.

I'm glad you guys like it! Here is more of how I did this. I was able to finish it today! First I started off with a plastic gutter from Lowes, which I think was around $10-$15. Then I cut it to the size of my tank. Along with the gutter, you want to get two end caps to go on the ends, which I think...

Gutter Hood Light D.I.Y.

Hey everyone! So a while back ago I was trying to find a good D.I.Y. on lighting for my crabitat. I found something that I was hesitant to try at first, but I am very satisfied with it! It is a hood light for your aquarium made out of a plastic gutter. I don't have time to post the tutorial and what...

Re: I got my hands on a 55 gallon tank!

OK, thanks! :) I have had my hermies for 10 years, but now I am down to just 1 and I'm trying to decide if I should get more or not. I feel bad for the little guy because he is alone for the first time in so many years. So, I'm looking at different set ups to figure out what to do with mine if & wh...

Re: I got my hands on a 55 gallon tank!

Your set up is amazing!! I LOVE it! I have a question though, how do you clean your pools? I see that they are in the sand, do you just pull them out to clean them and change the water, or ?? Thank you! And yes, every two to three days I have to pull each pool out, empty it and rinse the container ...

Re: I got my hands on a 55 gallon tank!

Wow! That was worth the wait as it turned out beautifully. Really nice use of color. Love the crabs and their shell choices...always so refreshing to see crabs choosing something other than good old green turbos! That last shot of Harold napping wedged between the cholla and a plant is a hoot! I lo...

Re: I got my hands on a 55 gallon tank!

Alright, here are the pics! Again, I haven't had too much time so I don't think I am finished with all the arrangements of the tank yet, but this is what I have. Filling up the tank with sand and eco earth. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160222/c7163e24dc7c806c3790c20c492bc016.jpg http://uploads....

Hello world! I know this is a pretty old topic, and I've finally got time to finish my 55 gallon tank! I have filled it up with substrate, added all the decorations and essentials, and of course added my crabby family to the tank, and it looks like everything is great so far! I have planned to finis...

Re: My poor thing dropped a limb! Help!

Hey everyone! Merry Christmas first of all, but I wanted to update you on my hermit crab situation. I did consider for a little bit to stop the crabbing adventures, but I have decided to keep going at it. I especially decided this when my family got me two more hermit crabs for Christmas! I want to ...
