New to hermit crabs

You can also give them organic baby food as long as the fruits/veggies are on the safe foods list. My hermit crabs are not a big fan of fresh food besides baby food, but they love dried shrimp, fruits (especially coconut), and worm castings. Your crabs may not like certain food, so be sure to try an...

Safe Water

So I've been using distilled water for my hermit crabs, up until about 2 1/2 months ago when I found out it wasn't good for hermits. I have since switched to spring water, but I'm not sure if that's any safer than distilled water. Anyone know about this?

Indie

Indie died on Wednesday 9/11/13. I had only had him for 2 short months but he was honestly the best little crab I had ever owned.I had a lot of firsts with Indie; he was the first crab that I picked out for my new bunch of crabs (the first bunch where I actually knew what I was doing), he was the fi...

Growing Crab Family

I was in PetSmart the other day because I finally had to get a UTH and as usual, I wandered over to look at the hermit crabs. I saw one that was missing a HUGE piece of his shell right on top of his abdomen. I went back today and looked for that crab, I didn't see the one with the cracked shell, pro...

Uncovered Molter

I covered his cage with a towel because I knew he needed darkness. I'm just really concerned as this is my first molter and he's also my favorite crab so I don't want anything to happen to him, or my other crabs for that matter!

Uncovered Molter

So I had to move some things around in my crab tank today, and I accidentally uncovered a molter. I moved him into an ISO tank and grabbed all the pieces of his exoskeleton too. I put some local organic honey in with him, because I know it can give him some energy, along with the usual saltwater, fr...

Oopsie... 10 more teenies!

If you need shells for teenies check Joann, I bought a bag of shells for $12.99 and it had TONS of tiny turbo shells. Unfortunately I can't use them cause my crabs are bigger

Safe commercial food

I gave them fresh food for about a week and a half and it remained untouched, I'm thinking they didn't like the foods I gave them so when I get back I'm going to try different foods

Who's your favorite bands?

No, I totally agree. I'm only 16 and I honestly hate my generation. The things they do is absolutely absurd. I like old school pop but that's about it. I don't understand how people can stand music like Nicki Minaj or other pop artists. Music is a huge part of my life and I'm saddened at how bad it ...

Who's your favorite bands?

@Crabber85 definitely. I find it amusing when the kids my age are now like "oh my gosh I love country!" but it's not even real country anymore, it's pop country

@Crabber85 I totally agree country has turned really pop lately. I usually listen to older stuff or find the most country songs I can get

Safe commercial food

I try to switch it up as much as possible. My little guys aren't too big on fresh food, except they do really like dried coconut. I'm trying to find fresh foods that they do like, but I'm going out of town so I needed to know if the dry foods I had were safe for them. Luckily my crabbies didn't like...

Safe commercial food

I was wondering if my hermit crab food was safe; I have the Zoo Med hermit crab food as well as the All Living Things hermit crab food. I know that the All Living Things food is safe but I'm not sure about the Zoo Med food
