Upgrading!

So I’m picking up a 150 gallon tank this Saturday. I’m going to combine all the crabs from my 75 gallon and my 40 gallon and get rid of both of this tanks. I’m basically going all out on this tank because I want it to be the last one I ever have to set up. I’m building a false bottom, upgrading pool...

Re: Heating pad or heat lamp?

An under the tank heater is what is recommended. With hermit crabs, do not place the heater under the tank. Place it on the back of the tank above the substrate. You want to heat the air, not the sand. Heat lamps aren’t recommended because they zap the humidity. Crabs have modified gills and need hi...

Re: Crab safe?

I used the tortoise one. It’s all safe and the crabs love it. I’ve never seen the lizard one though!

Re: Hermies kitchen best all around foods?

She has mason jar meals that hit every aspect of the food pyramid and you get to choose the protein that goes into it! I bought one for when I’m busy and don’t have time to pick out food, I just give a scoop or two from the mason jar and know they’re covered for a night. I also like her half diet mi...

Our Crazy Crabby Caravan Caper 1/12/19

I’m so glad you two are adopting all these crabs. They’re going to such a great home. [emoji24] Happy they’re all looking in good shape! I’m also glad the snow storm hasn’t hit over there yet! I figured it was going to snow in PA and VA today! We’ve gotten 5.5” so far and at least another 12-16 hour...

Re: Store Review- ChollaQueen (Etsy)

I ordered a few items from her based off this review and they just came in today! I ordered an 18” piece of cholla wood. I love it, but it was kind of pricey. I really need like 4 more pieces for what I’m wanting to do. I also ordered a color boosting tropical flavor pack, purple sweet potato powder...

Re: Recommendation for amount of substrate

When I started out I used just 6 inches in both of my tanks, but once it settled it ended up only being 3 1/2”-4”. Personally, I like my tanks to have at least 10” once they settle, so I usually fill it up about half of the tank with substrate.

New Ultratherm design?

Yep! I’ve ordered from both reptile basics and the bean farm. My one for my 40 gallon from reptile basics looks just like that, while my 75 gallon from the bean farm is striped. They’re both great and I don’t notice a difference.

Re: Molting Again?

This is perfectly normally! A lot of crabs that come from not so great conditions will often pull back to back molts [emoji846] and depending on the size of the crabs, they may molt more often. I have 2 Ecuadorians that I adopted in October that molted for a month or so and they went down again the ...

Re: Isopods Devouring Crabs Food!

My isopods carry off puffed rice from my food dish and they always seem to devour minnows before the crabs get to them. I don’t worry about it, there’s always plenty of food in the tank. [emoji1743]‍[emoji3601] I don’t know if raising the food dish would actually help either! I have a second level s...
