Re: Unsure if Ariel is molting or dying after a power outage?

Their humidity is at 70% and I struggle to get it above that which is why I'm gonna use coco earth and waiting for a mister in the mail. We mist throughout the day and have moss and coconut huts in there so I always thought it was okay for the time being while I work on improvements. It used to stay...

Re: Unsure if Ariel is molting or dying after a power outage?

Also, I was wrong I got a better look at Sabastian today and he looks so good. He's bright colored and I found a piece of his exoskeleton. He's eating and drinking a lot of climbing and exploring like he always has. Ariel is half his size and shes a PP. Sabastian is an Ecuadorian.

Re: Unsure if Ariel is molting or dying after a power outage?

My temp stays at 80 and the humidity is around 65-70 relative humidity. She was walking around a tiny bit yesterday and I got her to eat some egg shells and saw her drinking some water. Last night she crawled into a hut and is just hanging out of her shell about half way. She was so active a few day...

Unsure if Ariel is molting or dying after a power outage?

Alright so about a month ago my area got hit with a really bad snow storm and our power went out for about a week. I had multiple blankets on our tank but it was very cold. I kept the humidity up but we were trapped so I had nothing at my disposal that could help make them warmer. We knew they were ...

Re: Two sudden deaths, why? And is my surviving crab in dang

So after researching I've discovered the errors of my ways. In the panic of cleaning their tank and getting them new sand, I did not moisten the sand to sand castle consistency. I believe since I interrupted their molting process and did not provide them with adequate moisture to dig their tunnels, ...

Two sudden deaths, why? And is my surviving crab in danger?

Okay, so I'm very new to this forum but don't know what else to do. I noticed that two of my crabs were dead in their tank today. One was completely out of his shell in the pool of water. His shell was upside down as if he crawled out, and I'm 100% positive he's dead. In panic we looked for the othe...
