A crab should never leave their shell unless they are trying on another one.

Re: Molting E in Bacterial Bloom & Lost Limbs

I’ve never been in your position, but IMO if something isn’t broke, don’t fix it. What you were doing was working. Perhaps everything new stressed him out? Perhaps try moving to a new shell, then try moving back into the critter keeper. That is what I would do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: Molting E in Bacterial Bloom & Lost Limbs

Just out of curiosity, don’t you think you would do better making him food mixes? You could do that with all of your crabs really.

Re: Molting E in Bacterial Bloom & Lost Limbs

Awesome updates! Try giving organic extra virgin olive oil, and the organic extra virgin coconut oil. He will need those fats for molting [emoji4] have you given any leaf litter? You can grind it up. My Es go bonkers for their leaf litter!!!! [emoji6]

Re: What could this be?

The crabs should be fine without a sitter (how long will you be gone?) Leave lots of leaf litter, seeds, dried bugs, calcium, snake skin, bubblers in water. [emoji4] Sometimes they don’t finish all of their exo. Might be better to keep separate while you aren’t there to monitor though. [emoji4] Sent...

please post an emergency template or PM me so i can help.
Please do not offer for members to PM you when you are new to crabbing. I know that you are trying to help, but it is better for them to post to the forum to allow everyone, and potentially more experienced crabbers to help. Thank you.

Re: toys

Our Hobby Lobby doesn’t accept competitors coupons so that is the downside here... Plus our hobby Lobby does have a lot of “painted” plants which aren’t good.

Re: Anyone with multiple jumbos in one tank?

[emoji2322] I do. Sigh...one of these days I’ll get to upgrade the tank to the 150 gallon I purchased. I’ll try to take a picture when they are all out eating- probably tomorrow- Son has a baseball game tonight.
