Re: Need Advice From Australian Crabbers

thanks for the offer, but I still don't think I'd be able to have it Australia is very strict about shipping in natural substances and I'm not too sure if they'll let it through customs if I'm going to order something from online, I'm going to be ordering it through Australian websites so that I kno...

Re: New Stuff For The Tank

well, Sparkle's shell was fine, it isn't really that chipped and it's actually quite big. It was Fritz that I wanted to change shell. His shell is very chipped around the opening and is way too small for him, he can't get his pincers fully in the shell. It was very unexpected that Sparkle was the on...

New Stuff For The Tank

Hey Guys, There a story behind me going down to the pet store, skip it as it isn't that relevant to this post, but it's a fun little story. So I just got my shells yesterday, I boiled them and put them in the tank. 3 of them are nerite shells that are about the same size as the nerite shells they're...

Re: This Is So Cute!!! <3

lol I went to the pet store to pick up my crabs and I decided which ones I wanted by how they climbed If you put them in your hand and let them climb up your hands you can tell if they're enjoying it or if they're scared by you the two crabs that I had seemed to enjoy climbing on me and that's why I...

This Is So Cute!!! <3

Hey Guys, So I measured my house and during the day it's 80 degrees with 75% humidity upstairs, so I've been taking my crabs up there every couple days so that they can get used to me. Also not that my crabs are still extremely scared of me, I just walk past the tank and they instantly climb into th...

Re: Lego Buildings

The lego building that I've made is pretty much impossible to pull apart, even I have difficulty doing it when I want to change something :P I'm a sub-genius with proficiency in logic, trust me, this thing won't come apart. The only problem that I'm encountering is how do I clean the lego? When you ...

Re: My Crabs Are Scared Of Me :(

lol, that's good to know. It just felt bad for me, as if I wasn't being a good owner. I'll make an effort to sit by the tank as often as I can so that they can get used to me and after a while I'll start holding them once a week.

Re: Need Advice From Australian Crabbers

Thanks for the advice, I have some more money and I'm thinking of using this to buy some more shells. I already bought some nerite and babylonias for the pet shop but I might go back and get a couple whale eyes if they'll wear them :)

Re: My Crabs Are Scared Of Me :(

Thanks for the advice, I guess over time they'll just get used to me being there. By what you meant by "letting them observe you", would a good idea be to just sit relatively close to their tank 5-10 minutes a day so that they get used to seeing me? And you suggested giving them food, would this inc...

My Crabs Are Scared Of Me :(

Hey Guys, I know that this might be pretty normal, but my hermit crabs are scared of me. They've settled into their new crabitat and are climbing, eating, drinking and doing other crab-like things. But then whenever I walk past, they run to the other side of the tank and/or hide in their shells. I'v...

Re: Need Advice From Australian Crabbers

Okay, thanks for the advice. I read online that you should buy a few shells too small, a few shells the same size their in and some shells bigger for them to grow into. So I've bought some nerites which are a little smaller and their size and I've also bought a couple babylonia shells that are a lit...

Lego Buildings

Hey Guys, I saw yesterday on google images people using lego to build huts, platforms and staircases in their crabitat and thought that it was a really good idea. As you all know, my tank doesn't really have much in it, it looks pretty empty, my idea was building a large lego platform/hut. I was goi...
