So discouraged... :(

In the last couple of weeks we've lost two hermies... Spike wasn't looking healthy and then died. Olaf, looked like he wanted to molt for awhile and I found him completely out of his shell and sitting lifeless next to it. He had the death smell. We got a new crab yesterday that looked healthy. I bou...

Do fruits and veggies have to be organic?

I know it's best to feed the crabs all organic produce but it's not readily available where I live. And if it is available, it is almost double the price of regular produce. So far when feeding my crabs produce, I've made sure to scrub the outside of the fruits and veggies very thoroughly. If it's a...

Re: Just rescued some crabs and need help!

Thank you so much! Phew! I ended up bathing them and putting in my 29 gallon with my three other crabs. I realized that the shower has chlorinated water, so I hope it wasn't damaging for them to breathe the steam for that hour or so. :( So far they seem to be loving their new tank! They're eating, d...

Just rescued some crabs and need help!

Hello, I just rescued five crabs from a family who didn't want them anymore. When I went to get them they were in a ten gallon tank with dry substrate. We hurried to get them home but the moisture our van dipped to around 40. :( I also noticed in their bag-o-hermit crab stuff was commercial crab foo...

Re: Two possible surface molters? Crabber Newbie needs help

Sadly, Spike died. :'( Olaf, on the other hand has come out of his mossy hide out. I think this guy is just super laid back. I'm adding another couple inches of substrate.

Re: Two possible surface molters? Crabber Newbie needs help

Olaf has broken tips. He was in gravel as substrate with no moisture. Spike's conditions were better but still not great. He doesn't have any broken tips. I saw both of them eat and drink a couple of days ago but their activity seems to have plummeted since then. They used to at least walk around at...

Two possible surface molters? Crabber Newbie needs help!

I posted a couple days ago about Olaf, my larges PP we adopted 2 weeks ago. He was in bad conditions at the pet store but and has been slow moving since home but has seemed generally healthy. I've witnessed him eating, drinking and bathing himself but he sits in one spot for hours on end even at nig...

Re: Hermit Crab leg is getting white stripes?? Is he sick?!

Thank you! Yeah, I'm pretty sure he didn't have the markings before. I looked him over pretty thoroughly in the pet store and have held him and looked him over since. Poor guy practically jumped into my hand from his shell in the pet store. He hasn't really tried to change shells since he's gotten h...
