Re: Worried that crabs might be attacking each other under substrate

And then there were a few suggestions from me to add to Curlysister's! GB for GotButterflies :) 2. Temperature gauge usually reads 70- 75°f and humidity is 70-80% they are both located in the upper right hand corner of the tank GB: I personally recommend digital gauges if you don't have one. You ca...

Re: New setup / substrate

Sand should be moistened to sandcastle consistency. IMO, glass lids help the best when it comes to keeping the humidity in. Substrate should be at least 6" or three times the height of your largest crab. Whichever is deeper wins. I have found that the 5:1 ratio of sand to EE helps with the moisture....

Re: Cheating a little bit

I just wanted to say your list looks great except you really need some fruit and leaf litter :) Also, nobody cooks for them in the wild, so try some raw stuff too! :) GB: Make sure you cover all aspects of food pyramid :) Foods should be organic when possible.

Looks like Overmountain1 covered everything :) They only need a drop of honey - so it won't be that messy :)

Re: Thermostat question

For my ultratherms, I place them on the back of my tanks, even with the substrate. My thermostats are to the front of my tanks. Do the pencil/chopstick test on your substrate. Stick one of those down the front of your tank so that you can see it (up against the glass). When you remove the pencil or ...

Re: Crab Stuck In Fish Net

I'm glad that everything worked out for you. I have always used netting in my tank. I've never had any issues. However, like odelayheehoo mentioned, I never layer it.

Re: Crabs are chowing down their hut

Nothing is wrong with them eating their hut... The problem consists mainly with them not having a more variety in their diet, and having pellets as food. Hermits can be really fun to feed! They can pretty much eat what you eat, and don't eat much! Check out these links: GB: Make sure you cover all a...

Re: Zoo med water conditioner

Unfortunately the zoo med salt water conditioner is NOT a sufficient saltwater supply for hermit crabs. A lot of products marketed for hermit crabs are not safe for them. Hermit crabs actually need marine saltwater, as in making a saltwater fish tank. A lot of us use a product called Instant Ocean. ...
