Re: What's wrong with my crabs?

No idea that's strange looking. I took the vines out and they started wandering around. I guess that was it?

Re: What's wrong with my crabs?

I put egg shells in there and they do eat them, I also give them shrimp and a dried mix of oatmeal nuts seaweed coconut chia seeds flax seed... I can't remember I think that's it. I'll also toss some random things in like fruit or spinach whatever I have in the fridge. I don't know how to get the em...

What's wrong with my crabs?

I have 2 crabs and have only observed one of them molt in the almost 2 years I've had them. I was worried it wasn't warm enough, etc so I upgraded to a bigger tank, and added things. Now they are just huddled under some artificial vines. Is it possible they are still scared from the tank change from...

Re: Acting weird

Thanks! I know he hasn't molted yet, but it has been a long time since he has, maybe he's getting ready to? He got up and moved around after I moved him so I guess he's fine. Lol

Acting weird

One of my crabs came out about 2 hours or so ago, and has been in the same spot suspended between two coconut shells just kinda hanging out of his shell. He looks a little lighter than normal, but when I opened the top he popped back in his shell like he normally does. I don't think he was stuck or ...

Heat

I'm updating my 10 gallon to a 29 gallon tank, and I want to know what you use to heat the tank? In my current tank I have 1 heat pad that keeps the temp at about 80 on average. I feel like the sand is colder than the air though. I have the heat pad half into the sand like recommend. But the crabs a...

It looks like this devils coach horse, except really small and doesn't have pinchers. I can't figure out what it is.

Bugs in sand

I found 4 bugs in the sand this morning. I recently put a peice of moss in there and I'm sure that's where they came from. 3 of them are black beetle like things, and one looked more like a teeny worm. They were all under the water bowl. I'm planning to change out all the sand now, but in the meanti...

Re: Molting above ground, i may have killed him

Just an update if anyone is curious, he made it. He finished molting under the cup and came out when he was finished. I gave him egg shells, fish, and a fruit and grain mix. He is doing great, running all over the aquarium. Now the other guy is hiding. Maybe he is molting too!
