Re: New crabs !

Sometimes they take a new shell and then go molt or sometimes they find one when they come back up, or they’ll just change bc they find one they like better. I had a little Ecuadorian that stayed down for 30 days for her first couple molts and her last one she stayed down for 2 months. I have crabs ...

Re: DIY Lid

I’m a heavy lid taper. Lol! I tape the crap out of my smaller tank lids. I use the strapping tape with the string stuff in it. I fold the end so I can grab it and re-use the same pieces of tape for quite awhile. It doesn’t look the greatest but I had one of our Es get out once and I said never again...

Re: Foods and Manipulating PP crab color

I’ve always wondered what affects their coloring. I know foods can make a difference and I had my largest male come up completely different color than he was when he went down. He was browns and now he’s like a dull reddish tones. I wondered if maybe just the drastic diet change from what I feed to ...

Re: Dead crab questions for future

I’ve dealt with both flooding where I had lost a crab and it started a bacterial bloom, which is absolutely awful, and I recently moved so had to tear my tanks down and suspected missing crabs and they were just gone, all I found was their shells. I’m not sure if it was from my isopods, other crabs,...

Re: The Shell Removal Experiment

Can I keep the smallest shells in until the 2 teeny ones change from painted? But I dunno where they are anymore. Maybe one is still in the entrance of a tunnel the small one made. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I would maybe wait until those guys change out of their painted shells. Getting the...

any fun things your hermies do?

Some of mine like to just sit and be cute for me all day, others only come out at night. ;) I have a ton of pictures of about half of them and the other half, hardly any. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/b40e95c34dab2263ccf948f556a61ae1.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/63d83327...

Re: Do I need to redirect Tiny away from underground Bleep?

Really? On this side there’s 7 inches. Deeper side is over 8? No one is bigger than a golf ball. (Might look like less because this is an old weird tank and the aquarium actually goes down past the decorative wood into the base, of that makes sense. There’s another inch+ behind the wood floorboard ...

Re: Do I need to redirect Tiny away from underground Bleep?

No, you don’t need to redirect Tiny. Hermit crab tunnels run in many directions and the chances of burrowing crabs interacting are low enough that we usually leave them be. Sent from my SAMSUNG Family Hub Refrigerator using Tapatalk I think he means he can actually see both of the crabs right there...
