worried about a hermit crab...

a few days ago I lost my hermit crab, Hazel. I found her dead, but my hermit crab Spiderman was eating her. i did not see any signs of molting and it would have taken her a few days at minimum, but i saw her almost everyday. There's the possibility that she was stressed, causing her to streak, but i...

Re: Petco Getting Out of the Hermit Crab & Reptile Business?

My PETCO is not really even looking at them. In the "fancy" hermit crab tank there is usually a lot of crabs. I went there days ago and saw that there we're barely any and one was dead! There are technically none is the native crab tank. Sorry about Tara :( Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

1 hermit still up, another crab?

angel is the only hermit crab stil up. Last time i checked, bobby was half buried. Will angel get lonely? I dont want my little baby to feel depressed. I have 5 hermies in a 25 gallon but all are pretty small. If none of themm come up in the next week or so, should i consider getting another friend?...

Re: i hate petsmart!

Hermit crabs get stressed out when moving from one place to another. It might not have been their fault. Going from bad conditions to fairly well conditions is one heck of a ride! Your crabs either died from PPS or illness. The crab missing two legs was stressed out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A us...

Re: Spiderman being a crab lol

I saw videos on YouTube about the waterfalls and I'm in love with them, they are expensive where I go. Being a billionaire would be cool.

Chia seeds and mites

I was looking at old threads because I find it fun. I read that someone had chia plant growing in the tank. I would love to have a real plant in the tank. I use fake because: I read something a while back that you should avoid live plants because they attract mites quicker? I have chia seeds and wou...

Re: Spiderman being a crab lol

Their bowls are deep so that they can submerge. From the top it looks shallow but it is not I promise. I would never give them bowls that they can not submerge (I have in the past and I regret that) I so normally give them big and deep dishes but for the time being I am giving them small but deep di...
