Well Water

Is well water treated with prime safe? We've never had any issues with our water quality, and prime should get all the heavy metals etc. out right?

Re: Updated Pictures Of My Three Crabitats ~ Picture Heavy

Your tanks are so beautiful! The perfect combination of pretty and functional. How many crabs do you have in each? I would love to add a topper to one of my tanks one day, and these pictures are total goals.

Absolutely beautiful!
Where did you get all of those branches? What did you do to season them so they wouldn't mold?

Re: Rust

In my option, rust isnt that harmful. Is it desired, no, but will it kill them, most likely not. https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ehermitcrabassociation%2Ecom%2FphpBB%2Fviewtopic%2Ephp%3Ft%3D79277&share_tid=79277&share_fid=28566&share_type=t&link_source=app Sent from my ...

Rust

One of my tanks is a small 10 gallon that has 3 itty bitty crabs occupying it. However, due to laziness on my part, the lid has started to rust a little bit. It is the kind that is metal wire, and my crabs do like to climb on it occasionally. Is the rust dangerous? Do I need to get a new lid? I can'...

Gimmicky or necessary?

I've seen some foods for sale on etsy and stuff marketed for hermit crabs and was just wondering if they actually are good for the crab, or if there are better/other, common household foods with the same nutrients?: Green sand (what even is this?) Astazanthin (is this just to help boost color or is ...

local snake skin

A HUGE snake decided to shed in our garage and leave us with 3-4 feet of skin.... shudder..... I hope I never come across it (it's probably just a harmless black snake but still). Back to the main question, is it safe to give a little to my crabbies? I seem to remember seeing it advertised on etsy o...

reptile vines

I'm sure somebody has asked this question before, but can reptile vines be used in crabitats? Are they toxic, do they grow mold easily, etc.?

Reptile Basics

Not sure if this is the right forum But does anyone know if there are any sales or like free shipping discounts that happen annually or randomly at all on reptile basics? Mainly wondering if it is worthwhile to wait for a sale to purchase some (not direly needed) supplies or if they don't do that so...

Re: Prime and other questions

How much prime would I add to an 8oz water bottle? I've heard that prime "disappears" after 48 hours and so it would be pointless to add it to the gallon of water I purchase and keep adding it every two days... what do you guys like to do? Also, is it normal for my PPs to not really swim in the wat...

Tank to Crab Ratio

I got confused looking at the topic of tank size to hermit crab size. In the chart it says "extra large [crab]: minimum gallons required" but what are the measurements for an extra large crab? It doesn't give a measurement, it just skips from large to jumbo. Right now 3 of my pp are just a smidge be...

Thermometer Hygrometer Question

So I've been having difficulties finding a thermometer/hygrometer that works for any period of time, I've tried 3 different models amd they all end up breaking within a year or less. What do you guys use (not too big or expensive please)?
