Hey! Im interested in 2 of the medium sized PP and the E. I live pretty close to Santa Monica so picking up wouldn't be a problem. Let me know if that works!
Hi, are you still interested?

About 8 PP and 1 E need home/s in Los Angeles

Hi all, my large crab tank recently broke in a move, and I am headed off to college next year with no one to look after my crabs, so I figured now would be a good time to start looking for a home or several homes for them. They currently are crammed into a 30 gal aquarium, I am happy to provide that...

Wound in BP

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181216/30b3a7028ea6b2cdf17e4d24c78b29c9.jpg My biggest hermit Rocky had his tunnel collapse just after a molt, so I moved him to an iso container so he could recover and eat his exo. Yesterday I saw him kind of resting up on the container but I didn’t think much o...

Re: I messed up

It happens to all of us. If there were leg tips around him he likely has already molted, sometimes they won’t eat that part.

Re: Almost immediate molt upon purchase?

Totally normal for them to molt after purchase, could also be simply de-stressing under the sand. How deep is your substrate?

Re: Overcrowded?

Even with the most generous spacing rule of 5 gallons per crab you end up at 65 gallons. Subtract some for the tiny’s also. You sound fine to me!

Re: Sand in Shell.

Do you have a shell shop? A shower caddy mounted on the glass keeps the shells clean and together.

Re: Missing hermit crab

Strawberrys are very fragile so it is possible that he went down to moot and didn’t make it through. He also could still be molting- 3 months isn’t untypical!

Re: VERY WORRIED- No signs of crabs for nearly a week

Sounds like normal behavior to me! Try not to stress (I know it’s hard). But they may be molting or just distressing with the new tote. They will come up!

Re: Dead or Surface Molt?

Make sure that the spare shells in your tank are not painted and take this out when he changes.
