Re: Hermit crab sitting in same position for days??

How can you know that you’re avoiding any like bug eggs and stuff- do you do anything else to the leaf litter? Sorry to jump in, but I’ve been wanting to do this too but it freaked me out about bugs!

Re: 2 Crabs from Boardwalk... Temp Tank... 1 Molting... Thoughts/Advice Appreciated!

It’s partially personal preference, but there are some issues to be aware of with the EE that happen less with some sand mixed in. Nothing beats sand for a sandcastle- there’s a reason they’re still made out of sand! [emoji39] Kidding. Point is, we do recommend the 5:1 sand bc it does hold its shape...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

Meet part of the newest of my crew- one Jumbo and 2 XL; Princess and Mr. S are Pp, and the third is an Indo who is unnamed at the moment. (Mr. S hides in the log a lot.) Enjoy! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190816/bfd611bbb519854746d8c08f207ca187.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190816/e5...

Re: Tank to Crab Ratio

Personally I would go with as many gallons as you can afford for them at that size. Many say that a 55 is the minimum size for them just to have space to move freely! However, it’s safe to bet your crabs are a large to extra large size. My jumbo has at least a 6” span, prob a little more! In summary...

Re: Questions for those who use UVB (or know about it)

You can't, unless you have an expensive (around $225) meter to check for UVB output. That's why the bulbs need replaced on a set schedule for safety, as testing has shown 6 months to be a good period for normal brands, and 12 months for Arcadia. In hermits, it's not deadly for them not to have it t...

Re: Covers for your Tank.

I have a screen lid, and covering that is a double layer of cardboard, wrapped in foil, wrapped in a beach pattern fabric so it looks pretty, and then wrapped in thick clear plastic to protect from moisture and my cats. Helps to hold both heat and humidity in the tank, and it's a little puffy so it...

What is that white climbing grid called?

Hi, I’m beginning a tank upgrade. I love that whit e plastic grid I see in the background of so many tanks. What is that stuff called? I have “crafting mesh” but that’s not as sturdy. Also, how do you attach the sturdy white grid to the tank? Thanks for the input! It’s called egg crate light diffus...

Here you go- I hope I did this right, but here’s the vid of my E having a fit over being messed with this day. Funny how mad he is but a great example of a chirp I think!
