Re: Pre-Mixed Saltwater Solution?

$7 for that is insane! As CrabbyLover already mentioned they generally aren't ideal for hermit crabs even though it's sold for them. It's an easy ploy for stores to cash in on people who don't do their research. Your best bet is to purchase a small box of Instant Ocean and a small bottle of Seachems...

Re: Tiny Crab Care

Everyone that adopted captive bred babies last year are part of a research group. Every quarter we measure their leg spans, check their sex, note color shell preferences along with general observations and tank conditions. So far in a year we have done this we noticed a lot of size difference betwee...

Re: Tiny Crab Care

Yes and no. With a super tiny crab they can actually climb the silicone at the corners of the tank. Also be sure that if you have a glass lid the gap isn't large enough for them to crawl out. With tiny crabs you should be sure you always offer them additional calciums. A small crab may molt monthly ...

Re: Red Bell Pepper Seeds

You're welcome! Nothing really happens with the seeds when you dry them. They don't shrink or anything. I diced the peppers and dried them like that and didn't powder them. I think our purple pincher picked the pepper pieces more than the powdered peppers! [emoji16] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapata...

Re: Red Bell Pepper Seeds

I dehydrate the seeds and all with peppers. I honestly think my goofballs prefer the seeds and white inside areas over the "good" part we would eat! Crabs are weird!

Re: I got started on my HC tattoo

Tattoos are funny! After a while you kind of forget you have them. They sort of become like a mole, freckle, or birthmark, you know it's there but see it as a part of you! I go in for more coloring on mine in November. Xenocrab started on her HC tattoo of Friday! It's as realistic as mine is cartoon...

Re: new heater

Be sure you have an UTH that can be insulated since some run the risk of overheating if insulated and can cause a fire. There are a million and one ways to insulate a UTH. Doth mentioned two of the easiest DIY methods with stuff you can find around the house. You can even use car window shades from ...

Re: Hermies Kitchen

We last time we ordered from Hermies Kitchen was over a year ago. I believe that order took 3 weeks to arrive. We never had any issues with their foods. Some things were a hit and others weren't touched. I don't blame the shop for that since crabs can be picky. If you are looking for other options c...

Re: Fruit jelly question

I would probably avoid giving that to your gecko too. Geckos are more advanced than hermit crabs with their anatomy. Like Curly mentioned it wouldn't have much if any nutritional value for the gecko or any other animal.

Re: Dehydrator

6-8 hours doesn't seem like enough time to dehydrate most juicy or thick items like apples, pears and berries. Stuff like peppers, and corn and leaves may only take a few hours. You can Google dehydrating times and temperature for most things. I add the coconut oil onto the parchment paper. The coco...

Re: Dehydrator

Update: Tried dehydrating bananas last night, but it didn't work out so well. I think it was user error lol. The bananas were on their way to going bad, so they were super mushy. I pureed them, and spread them over wax paper. I let them sit in the dehydrator for 6 hrs. After that, they were still a...

Re: Shipping overseas?

No. Plain and simple. The only way it would be feasible would be to do it as a business to fill out paperwork and pay for all of the licenses. Then you would also need to cover the import and export information for each country. In the US we can't even take a crab on a plane traveling between states.

Re: New Hermit Crab owner with questions and concerns

I'm glad you are reading the care guides! A majority of questions are answered in them. Once you learn the care guides it makes adjusting things to your specific requirements. As for adding more substrate I think there's a guide for that! :D You can normally safely add about 1 inch of substrate even...
