Re: Crab molting problems?

I would leave her be and make sure the conditioners are just right. Also I would put her close to the food so if she is struggling she has close access to it.

Molting, PICTURES!!!

Over the time period that the HCA was down for maintenance, I've had a lot, and I mean A LOT, of molts. Twinkie has been molting like crazy and now is GIANT. Ahh! Little Nugget is not so little anymore and now fits perfectly into Bumbi's old shell. And SQUIDGY!!!! He decided to molt right beside the...

Re: How long to destress?

I would give him a couple more weeks. I didn't see my 3 hermit crabs for almost two months and then two of the came back up. After there were holes in the sand, I got a bad scent coming up and decided to dig. I found Tweedles dead under ground 2 weeks ago. I would consider waiting for some time. Pro...

Re: Well Water safe?

You should treat it with some water conditioner first. Or a simpler option, in my opinion, is just to get a big jug of bottled water at the dollar store. It lasts pretty long and is safe for the crabs.

Re: A shell-less molt?

I agree. It's not unusual for them to switch into a too large (or sometimes even too small) shell just before digging down to molt. I've had crabs put on ridiculously too big shells only to dig down a few days later. They come up fitting in that shell really well. So the too big shell may be in pre...

A shell-less molt?

Today when I came up to go to bed I was going to measure the size of whatever hermie was above ground. When I went to look in, I realized that one of my tinies, Nugget, had dug down without the shell he was in earlier. I don't know if he has dug down naked to molt or he chose a shell much too big fo...

Re: How to calibrate a thermometer??

There is no way to calibrate an air thermometer - the best thing you can do is place it next to another thermometer and see if they read the same. If you don't have one outside or in your home, most modern furnace thermostats have one built in. The tank shouldn't be reading lower than the surroundi...
