Re: New Owner/Burrowing Question

Thanks! The temp and humidity seem fine now but I KNOW in the winter we will need heat. It gets cold here even in so cal!

So you think having two E's I should get more still? I better get a larger tank first!

I gave them tuna today since someone said they like protein!

Re: New Owner/Burrowing Question

Thank you. I think I will start looking in a community forum for a tank.

Also, is the orange one also an E or a PP?

I really think petsmart should read up on these things so you get the right tank to begin with!!

Re: New Owner/Burrowing Question

My husband used to have fish. So he can relate a bit at least LOL

Well, this guy sure likes to dig.

Also, yesterday he went up to another one and they had a little bit of feeler touching. No one pushed though. Just feelers going like a kitty fight. Hopefully they were just saying hi.

Re: New Owner/Burrowing Question

I can't get a picture of the larger one. I want to say he is similar in color as the lighter colored one. Gray/beige.

Is anyone able to identify if they are all same type? And not one that has to be in a very large tank?

Thanks :)

Re: New Owner/Burrowing Question

Thank you for your response. I bought the 10gal hermit crab starter kit and of course it came with the calcium sand. UGH! OK, the large one has buried himself again. I do not know what type of crabs these are and I read in another thread that one type needs a very large tank and also they do well al...

New Owner/Burrowing Question

Hi, My name is Tiffany. Yesterday, my daughter talked me into getting hermit crabs. Now I am in love with them! We only got the 10 gallon habitat for three crabs. I am pretty sure we need to make the substrate (coco fiber and sand) deeper. The largest crab just burrowed under the large feeding dish....
