Re: Why Won't They Molt

Wheel mistake

I was cleaning some items, and unwisely put the hamster wheel into boiling water. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking. Anyways, the plastic bent some, and the wheel *sort of* spins. Harry lives walking in the wheel, can I still put it in there? Once I can afford it I will be buying a new one t...

Amount

Right now I have just one large crab(the other passed away). I have a 40 gallon tank, and I most likely will not be able to upgrade in the next decade. How many crabs could I safely adopt.

Ramp

Right now, both of my water dishes are useable and the Harry can completely submerge, but I was thinking of building a ramp for ease of access. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks!

Re: Tough Situation

Thank you! The guilt of not adopting is awful. The crab I have now was from a store and I was able to keep him alive so if I do have to buy hopefully I can save the bought crabs.

Tough Situation

Hello! A couple weeks ago, one of my crabs passed, leaving my other crab alone in the tank. I am going to try to adopt another crab or two as a friend for him, but if I can't find any to adopt, is it better to but from a store or keep him alone? I don't like buying, but will I need to? Thanks!

Re: Lethargy Concerns

Sounds like your conditions are good. You just need to raise your humidity to a minimum of 80%. They have modified gills and need humidity to breathe. Cover your lid with saran wrap rather than a towel. As for the lethargy, it's possible he's getting ready to molt. Someone with more experience can ...
