Re: Questions for those who use UVB (or know about it)

If you go on Amazon, you used to be able to purchase the hood and it came with the light. Then from there you purchase new bulbs every 6 months :) The light will still work, but the UVB won't be any good

Edit: Thank you :)

Re: How hot is too hot?

I just wanted to state not too move the tank. If your substrate is deep enough they can dig down to cool off. I don't let my tanks get above 86, but that is me.

Re: Questions for those who use UVB (or know about it)

I have UVB on all of my crabitats, I use Reptisun T5-HO bulbs on mine. I swear by increased activity, and happy healthy crabs. My crabs breed also. :) The reason I originally purchased UVB was to replicate their natural environment. Straws have to have it though :)

Re: New to forums!!

Hello, and welcome to the HCA! :)

I personally recommend dipping them in the freshwater of the tank, but to each's own :)

Re: Crab looks dead, out of shell

I agree with Curlysister. Please fill out the emergency template. One thing I noticed is what you are feeding. Hermit crabs need a variety in their diet - and they especially need calcium eg: cuttlebone )purchase at the petstore), eggshells, coral, oystershell, They really need protein also eg: bugs...

Re: Mites during a molt??

I honestly couldn't see anything, but then again, it's late - and my eyes are bugged out from looking at my zoeae. If they are white then they would be food mites. Is your crab alive?
