He Flips!

My big guy flips himself upright. I apologize for the quality, YT wouldn’t upload it in any higher quality than this

What do you use for substrate? How deep? How large and how many crabs do you have?
I use a mix of Play Sand and Eco Earth, 6.5” deep. I have 3 crabs now, two medium and one tiny.

Re: help a brother out

This is so sweet. Possibly even proof that crabs have emotions and care for the well-being of their tank mates?

I hope so. I just didn’t think it was natural or normal for two molters to come up above ground prematurely :(

Re: Another Molter Gone...

The others are perfectly fine, just for some reason molters keep appearing above ground before they are finished

Another Molter Gone...

Yep, again.. Another molter has been found above ground, dead. Conditions have been the same and the other guys are doing great, happy and healthy. I'm sure this guy is Chella.. I'm not sure why molters are appearing above ground before they are finished molting. I'm doing everything I can to keep m...

Sand Dollar Bits

Are Sand Dollars in any way useful nutrition wise for the crabs? I have some and I'm unsure if it's safe to use.

Re: Yes, good news for once!

Hooray! My guys have been under for a couple months, and I'll be returning home Sunday with new shells for my big guys, including him. Hopefully they'll all be up when I return so I can tell which crab I'm missing.

Re: Waiting for Friends to come back from molt

It depends on how large your tank is to tell if you can add another crab in or not. My guys are often times alone for a period of time while the others are down, and they're usually fine.

Re: Hand Picked Turbos and a Cute Crab Nic Nac

Cute crabby! As for the shells, boil them and soak/dip them in salt water before adding them to your tank. Personally, I don't trust what people say, but there is still the shipping and dust, among whatever else the shells may have collected before you bought them. I take no chances when it comes t...

Hand Picked Turbos and a Cute Crab Nic Nac

I am currently vacationing and I picked up some turbos and a cute little hermit crab figurine. The shop claims there are no harsh chemicals used in the process of polishing them. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190319/2a62219ba12108ca8bc8d9b2a75bbeee.jpg 5 PPs: Koa, Moja, Siam, Chella, and Ozark
