Just take your time and work on correct tank conditions and proper nutrition, that’s the best place to start. Oh! The correct shells for crabby will be a good first thing to have ...

Re: hermit crab not eating or moving much

I am curious too, what is the hydrogel? I’m not trying to be negative, I’ve just never heard of it, just wondering what it is. I don’t think I’ve heard of any other hermit owners using it so it may not be safe.

Re: In Need of Opinion on Misting/Humidity and Lid Selection

Agree with above posts, a lot of great advice above, getting a glass lid will really help your humidity. Setting up following our recommended guidelines will make it so much easier for you. Sealed lid, 5:1 ratio of play sand to coco fiber, sandcastle consistency, with a good brand heat mat covering ...

Don’t know what to do with heat mats?

I have an 11x35 that I use on my 40gallon that may work for you, winter months you may need to add an extra heat mat on the side, depending on how cold your house gets. I added a smaller one(can’t remember exact size right now) just to make sure I had the heat if I needed it and it ended up working ...

Water Quality tester.

I know I looked into this when I started my pools, I think both the freshwater and saltwater kits are the same testing stuff, just the cards are different. Like Wode said the ammonia, nitrate, and nitrite are most important. I have a terrible memory but it was cheaper to just get the three separate ...

Using Prime Dechlorinator in Small Amounts

My opinion prime is the best, a lot of people use it. It is two drops per gallon.

Edit to add: I get the smaller 50ml/1.7floz bottles bc of the way the top is, you can do the drops easier. Image

Strawberry Hermit Crab (Coenobita perlatus)

Yes you make such a good point. I’m definitely gonna be adopting some pp’s on Thursday. But yeah the plan was to get those and raise them and gain experience because like you said I would be absolutely devastated if I got a strawberry and something happened [emoji31] and I’m sorry to hear about you...

Strawberry Hermit Crab (Coenobita perlatus)

The suspected baby violas came form my crabs, Mary and I met up so she could raise them, I knew their best possible chance would be with her. We haven’t really figured out what we’re doing with them and how many we get for number of actual crabs, I am leaving the bigger stuff to her decision bc she ...

More eggs!

Grats! Keep us posted! I keep wondering when I'll get a spawn. I have no idea how many of my crabs are males / females in my tank but with 7 crabs I figure it will probably happen eventually!
