Press n seal works better than saran wrap. You could also use gallon sized ziploc bags and duct tape them together. That might work better also. :)

Re: Leaf Litter?

Ask VickieG if she still has some goodies left. She's only charging shipping for her leaf litter: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ehermitcrabassociation%2Ecom%2FphpBB%2Fviewtopic%2Ephp%3Ft%3D123765&share_tid=123765&share_fid=28566&share_type=t&link_source=app I collect ...

I second everything that CrabbyLover77 said. Your hermit crab is not fine.

Re: Leaf Litter?

I don't know of those trees being safe. You could check out this page that has shops listed: viewtopic.php?f=122&t=119315

Edit: to prepare leaves, you wash leaves in dechlorinated water, and then I bake them to kill bugs.

Re: Hermit crab needing new home Frankfort, KY

HERE AT THE HCA we have asked people not to ship due to the delays in shipping that the post office is currently experiencing. In addition to that, it may be unsafe due to temperatures in some areas.

Re: Crab move

I agree with Joe Hermits. Are you using marine salt? Unfortunately most products marketed for hermit crabs are not safe. (Bottled hermit crab saltwater and Zoomed hermit crab saltwater are not sufficient products for them). A lot of us use a product called Instant Ocean which is what aquarium hobbyi...

Re: Crabs not fully in substrate?

#1 rule in crabbing....NEVER DIG 1) What does your substrate consist of? IMO, for purple pinchers substrate, (playsand mixed with eco earth 5:1 ratio), should be 6 inches or 3 times the height of your largest crab (whichever is deeper). If you have Es substrate should be at least 10-12”. Substrate s...
