Hermit Crab Experiment

there are some variables that you can not control or have as constants.... the age of hermit crabs is not really known as each species grows at different rates and the size of each species is different as well. While a crab that is roughly 3 years old in one species may be about the size of a quarte...

can't get rid of white mites

I think that is what I am going to do... just set up the temp and trash most of whats in my tank and boil the rest a few times before re-adding it. bleach the tank and air dry it outside that way I can spray it with the water hose.

can't get rid of white mites

Kuza, the problem that I have with the predatory mites is that right now I don't have the 20-30 bucks to spend on buying mites. if you'll read my thread in clicks and chirps you'll see what all i'm going through right now and have been going through lately. I don't have any spare money laying around...

can't get rid of white mites

I'll try that CA I don't know what else to do... I hosed out the entire thing...and trying to move a 66 gallon long by yourself is a chore. but to be honest I don't know where they came from but they are only on and in the tank. I'm at a loss as to what to do next.

baby coons and ignorant people

I hate to say it but you can also call animal control (you don't have to give them your name and they won't reveal it) or a similar agency and they will confiscate them and take them to a rehab to raise and release. She may possibly get a fine as well since you have to have special training and a li...

can't get rid of white mites

Nah...these things are everywhere. Literally... they are crawling up the sides of my tanks and congregating on the outside edges and corners...I'm telling you these little things are freaky. They aren't travelling down the tank because I can't see them on the stand and they are not traveling down th...

Or where did I go wrong? This is the first time in the 3 years that I have been crabbing that I have h...

Velcro to hold up second levels?

I use the command hooks...they do great holding up my second levels. I use the corner shower caddys and the hooks easily hold it up. I had 2 hooks that have been in the tank for over a year and I just recently took it down to move it somewhere else. So i recommend using them if you can. My crabs lea...
