Molting questions

So I have a hermie who is just a baby. No bigger than an inch. He has been buried for over a month and I just have a few questions and concerns. 1. For his size approximately how long will molting tanking? 2. My substrate is not moist enough to hold its shape at all so will he suffocate? 3. Is there...

Crab disappearance

So I have three hermit crabs and my smallest one has been hidden for about a week or more. I am unsure if he has gone under to molt but I am just worried because my substrate isn't moist enough right now and am worried about suffocation and if he will be able to get out. Should I search for him or j...

Re: Burying

Was he near the surface? How near? Depending on his location, you might of been better in leaving him be and not burying him... Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk Okay that was a false alarm but I really did find him today. I was fixing things up again and I brushed against his shell in the sand ...

Burying

So I haven't seen my little pp in a couple days and just now was fixing up their tank and I reached into the sand to fix it some and I brushed against his big claw. I didn't get a full look at him, I just saw a small bit of his claw and covered him back up. So I was wondering if he is just molting? ...

Re: Better Crabitat

That's awesome! Can I make a suggestion tho - lose the painted shells. You'll want a natural shell and their preferred type. Here is a shell guide: http://www.hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=92552 Edit: Sorry! I forgot the pics are down... It still has a lot of information just no p...

Better Crabitat

I have been on this forum for just about a week now and have had my two crabs for a week now as well and I finally got them a 10 gal tank today. They were in a plastic carrier, probably only 2 gal or so and they already seem happier with the new setup and little bit of things I have added for them. ...

Shell Changing

I am just curious as to if anyone else has any crabs that like to change shells a lot. I just got my two crabs about a week ago almost and my big guy immediately changed shells, into one good for his size, when we got him home, only to change into a shell too small a few days later and then changed ...

Crab care questions

So I recently bought two PPs, one big and another is small. I have had hermit crabs before but they were my mothers and so I never really learned too much about them so I wanted to ask some basic questions to help me out. 1. What is the best kind of substrate to use for them that most hermit crabs s...

Way to climb out of water bowl?

So I recently got two hermit crabs, one is large but another is still rather small. I understand that both their water bowls should be deep enough so they can submerge and was just wondering what are some good things to have in the bowls that make it easy for the crabs to be able to get out when the...

Hermit Crabs Hardly Moving.

So just a couple of days ago I bought two hermit crabs, one is a bigger one and one is a smaller one not very old. The first day or two they seemed okay, they were moving a bit, the bigger one was climbing. It is a plastic tank I have for now and isn't too big but I plan on purchasing a 10 gallon gl...
