Re: Lebanon, PA: 2 PP, Local Pickup Only

I just learned that at least one is up, just very shy and only coming up when I'm not there. The food I had out in a line was scattered when I came home. I put out 3 shrimp, so if in the next few days any vanish, there's definitely at least one up

Re: Lebanon, PA: 2 PP, Local Pickup Only

The remaining 2 PPs are still underground. I'm keeping track of food to be sure they aren't just hiding. They went underground in the middle of December, and are a hair under medium sized. When should I check their status by digging?

Lebanon, PA: 2 PP, Local Pickup Only

UPDATED ON 01/16/19: 2 PP STILL AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION - THE STRAW AND 1 PP HAVE BEEN ADOPTED :) After a change in circumstances, I'm no longer able to keep a stable climate for my crabs, so I'm looking to donate the crabs and food to a good home, and will negotiate for the equipment. Above ground ...

Re: Carpet in Crabs' Room Needs Cleaned

The tank is more or less a 40 gallon. Hopefully I can get some kind of blacklight tonight!

Carpet in Crabs' Room Needs Cleaned

One of our cats peed somewhere in my room, where I keep my crabs. However, it's been a wild goose chase finding where because the spot was dry till I found out about it. How much of a risk to my crabs' health would it be to move them right back after getting the carpet professionally cleaned if it c...

Surprise Power Outage

Due to high winds, I unexpectedly lost power while I was at work before leaving for the weekend. I figured it wouldn't be too bad since my sister would be present and could take care of things when the power came back on. However, if there time frame is accurate, power won't be restored until all bu...

Discolored hole in carapace

After being temperamental for at least a week, another of my straws has sadly passed on. Before its demise, it wouldn't stay in any shell I helped it into, and even had its original shell stolen. At first I thought it may have been going into the dreaded surface moult because its eyes were pale. How...

If you still have the emailed receipt, go to your bank. It's late, but they may be able to reverse the charges still. That's what I did and I got my money back

Re: What are your crabs up to?

My crabs love their wheel! If you get a wire one, i advise using aquarium silicone on any exposed edges so they don't rust

Re: Pest Control Dangerous to Crabs?

Sorry for the partial necrobump, but it seemed silly to make a new topic. If the exterminator does spray, how long should i keep my crabs out of the room? Or does press and seal do enough that i can just move them out of the way?

Re: What are your crabs up to?

Turns out two of my straws really like organic peanut butter. They're practically taking turns lording over the dish enjoying it

Re: Catching Nocturnal Behavior?

Would they all molt without showing any signs like looking dull or having cloudy eyes?

Catching Nocturnal Behavior?

So I'm getting a little concerned because, nearly 3 weeks after giving my crabs full sub, I've only seen 4 of 7. I'm wondering if part of that is just nocturnal activity, but it seems like quite the lucky strike to only make holes where they can't be seen, and leave no trace otherwise. Has anyone se...

Re: Is my crab dying?

She did indeed surface molt, but it went poorly. I posted a topic asking for help and got lots of advice that i heeded fully, but she passed. If you're interested, here is the topic
