Re: Clearing some confusion [LONG!]

I think we have all ‘abandoned’ some of our threads once we got what we needed from them before! That said, it is sweet that you wanted to be sure we knew the whole story, and I agree, there’s probably no easier way to do it than make it it’s own thread! No worries, I’m sure your crabs are doing gre...

Can I have a crabitat without lid/cover?

Lids are pretty much a necessity with these humidity loving climbers! I keep some of mine in a couple of totes, complete with lid- but I make sure I get the clear sided ones and that they get enough light etc during the day. If you think they need to be separated, this is a cheap and easy way to go....

Re: Chickens! And a bunny

Here’s the ‘and a bunny!’ Kind of a long one but here’s the full story of why we had a wild bunny in our care at all cause we normally would not keep one- even overnight! So, we have deep window wells and live semi-rurally; big field behind the house etc. There are a LOT of rabbits, which I always l...

Chickens! And a bunny

Edit here: we got 4/8 that are roosters. Quack, Chip, and both other of the black Australorps. Those last two are being rehomed today. (Sunday 21st- or tomorrow at worst.) Awww thanks y’all! Chip is rotten lol. I am having a custom chicken diaper made for him, as well as a tiny harness and leash. (A...

Chickens! And a bunny

Ok y’all! Firstly- THANK YOU! We really have been loving every bit of having them. They’re hilarious too. They kinda remind me of crabs sometimes in their curious clumsiness.... maybe that’s weird but they do! Hehehe I’m gonna try again here!! So you did get to see the two black Australorps we have ...

Re: I Think I Accidentally Hurt My Crab!

Y’all, I’ll be honest, and I know all of us has done this, too. You walk up to the tank, and either just that does it, or you reach for something to clean or move and someone inevitably pulls in too fast, forgetting to hold on, and goes rolling backwards off a log, a shelf, another crab, you know- a...

Excellent! I need to get more plankton, blood worms, and silkworm pupae! I found a good one for the silkworms just haven’t ordered yet. Gotta get on that for sure! Thanks everyone!

Re: I Think I Accidentally Hurt My Crab!

Oh yes- we have all done things like this and gone OMG!!! I have had a crab punch me in a tender spot between my fingers while I was not looking at her, and my auto reaction was to kinda jump and shake- she came off, thankfully the carpeted floor was only like a foot down - maybe. That was a year ag...

Chickens! And a bunny

Ok so obviously I’m far from the first or only person to keep chickens. However, I sure do love my little chickens! I have learned ever so much about them recently, read several books etc- bc in this regard they’re a lot like crabs and I have no vet to take them to. All I can do is learn as much as ...

Re: Climbing wall

What about the rubber bands I used to tie the mesh together? Is that safe for them? They won’t try to eat it right? I assumed thy wouldn’t since they don’t try to eat their plastic plants and stuff, but I wanted to make sure. I won’t use tape if they don’t mind it being wobbly. I am dying to catch ...

Re: Bioactive crabitat dream

I use a small ET as an iso tank (for any except my jumbos it will work anyway!) and while my sub isn’t as deep as yours, and the surface area of my pools aren’t huge, I have to tape the cracks around the front in addition to sealing the top. So, proportionally its not quite the same either, I’m no m...

I know that [mention]RiNiKy506 [/mention]’s go through a mound of fresh bloodworms. They’re protein machines, so pretty much anything you want to offer them they will probably love!

Substrate confusion

Most people on here will use just the general ‘playsand’ offered at Lowe’s or Home Depot- sometimes one is a lighter color so watch for that if it’s important to you. (Not I, but some do.) I also use the (approximate) 5:1, and the sand itself has not yet caused any issues for me, I do mix with the d...
