Re: Pre-Mixed Substrate from HCP

Yeah, and I can’t churn the sand either because I have a molter right up next to the glass. I have a book covering his “window”. He’s been there for almost 5 weeks now and I don’t want to collapse his cave. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I remember when we had 1 like that...I taped an old schoo...

Re: Pre-Mixed Substrate from HCP

I have considered ordering a bag to make it even because my sand mix has settled and it’s under 4” in some places. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Mine is terrible along the back like that because they are always hiding in shallow holes there. My sand is VERY uneven these days because of all the...

Re: Pre-Mixed Substrate from HCP

I ordered several bags from there to mix in along with play sand and I use it to top off when my sand settles...I did it for convenience :wink:

Re: Fleming is worse - death is near - its so serious-

So very sorry for your loss......don’t blame yourself. We all make mistakes and crabs go through so much before they ever even get to us so even with perfect conditions many don’t survive long. It’s not like you did anything on purpose so don’t beat yourself up! We are all here for you...

Re: Moss pit question

I have a bath caddy with no lining, it dries out pretty quickly, maybe with the lining it will help keep the moisture. Rod used to sleep up there but she is down now, Salty has taken her spot and every now and then Squirt will sleep up there too. How often should I change the moss? I’ve been meanin...

Cuttlebone (found in the bird section) is awesome! Many put it in the substrate so it resembles a surfboard in the sand haha...I did this as well but have since given up doing that because somebody keeps pulling it out or knocking it over haha...my crabs have taken large chunks out of it at a time :...

Re: Post molting concern

I am not very experienced but I’d say it was normal. They use so much energy during a molt....hopefully someone with more knowledge replies soon but if it was me, I’d make sure calcium and proteins were available....I’d also give some organic honey (regular if u don’t have it right now) in a little ...
