Re: Hands-off or hands-on? I'd like to bring a thought to the table

Kind of on this topic, occasionally I will get my crabbies out and put them in a small dish tub with a little treat for them to snack on and my female, Shallan, is a complete treat hog! I just watched her with her treat in both claws, tucked under her body, walk the entire length of the tub just to...

Re: Hands-off or hands-on? I'd like to bring a thought to the table

I stay kind of hands off, as I will get them out occasionally to let them explore a bucket with a climbing surface while I shower and I will occasionally let my female walk on my hands but not my male. My female is generally more chill when it comes to handling whereas the male freaks out. I have al...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

Oh nothing, just being little piggy crabs, that's all! I put a few bits of cinnamon cheerios in the food bowl this afternoon to see if they would have any interest and almost immediately they were both at the food bowl! One carried a whole cheerio away to snack on it elsewhere and the other plopped ...

Re: Crab needing home in St. Louis Missouri

Here are some pictures that I have taken over the past few months to show you how much I care about these little guys and what their tank looks like. I have made a few changes since the most pictures were taken and I am more than happy to show you pictures of the most recent setup if you would like ...

Re: Crab needing home in St. Louis Missouri

I am in St. Louis and I would love to adopt your crab! I have 2 others, a male and a female named Kaladin and Shallan. They are both mediums and I just upgraded them to a 20 gallon aquarium so I was actually thinking that I could probably get another friend for them! I have had them for 2 years now ...

Re: Confused by this behavior

Also, both of them appear to be eating the eco earth that I just added. Is that OK?

Confused by this behavior

Does anyone know what my hermit crab is doing here? She just got out of the saltwater pool for context and immediately started turning herself over onto her back and rubbing her claws together and stuff like you see here! I am very confused.

Re: From a 10 gallon to a 20L!

I love upgrades! A digital therm/hygrometer is much more acurate than the dial one. Many people use the Ultratherm uth. A size that will cover the entire back of the tank from the top of the substrate to top of tank. Are the pools deep enough for them to completely submerge, with a safe way in and ...

A few, yes. I have had these two little guys for about two years now.

Re: From a 10 gallon to a 20L!

The uth is resting on the left side and back side of the tank. Yes I have a combination thermometer and hygrometer stuck on the back of the tank. If I got a glass lid, how would I provide heat? As far as play sand goes, no. I never have before and they both just came up from a molt and didn't seem t...

From a 10 gallon to a 20L!

As it says in the title, I upgraded my hermits from a 10 to a 20L tank tonight and they have so much more antenna space now! I just have a couple of quick questions though. I bought the 20L on Facebook Marketplace and gave it a thorough cleaning and switched them over to it but it did not come with ...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

Well, now that they've both molted, I decided to add a bit more substrate and a few more shells as well and tonight is apparently shell swap night! I have been going in to look at them every hour or so to see how they like the new arrangement and every time I go in, they are in different shells! Sha...

Ok, is the one shown a diy or a different type of wheel?

Hermit wheel!

Shallan found the running wheel tonight that I put in the tank a few weeks ago! I think that I may have scared her taking a picture but I was so happy that I had to share! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191102/4fff23ffdcc6140fb382a9d053cd0cd6.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191102/cb30b0e...
