Re: Changing food dishes

I don't normally come across a crab eating when I go to change the bowls, but in a situation like this I personally would allow it to continue and come back later to change it out :)

Re: Floaters in the water dish[emoji848]

The white things are definitely springtails, and they are harmless, but what concerns me a bit is your water dish in general. That appears to be one of the repti-rock dishes that are only 1/4" deep, do you provide water for the crabs where the can completely submerge?

Re: Almost emptied the salt water dish!

The fact that they are hiding is due to them being new and needing to settle in, there’s not much you can do to prevent that, but they will eventually come out soon enough and be as active as you would expect them to be :)

Re: Water pools

They won't have any issues climbing up the mesh no matter how you put it, as long as there is enough to grab onto they'll be fine.

I have my mesh zip tied into each end of the pool and it goes vertically down the side, across the bottom, and up the other side :)

Crushed red pepper?

Can I offer this type of pepper seasoning to my crabs?

Re: Is this safe?

You aren't required to cook any meats for the crabs, it's actually better to offer it raw, but that's up to you :)

Re: Habitat Questions

Thank you! When feeding protein do you cook the meat as if you were eating it? And for moss pits do you have s good setup or resource I could view? I don't cook any meat, the crabs like it better when raw, but cooking it is fine too. I like to keep my moss on the substrate, but it dries out faster ...

do you have to boil the branches in order to sterilize them before you put them in the tank?
No, you can also freeze them to kill off bugs, or you could bake them in the oven. This is what I do with my branches :)

Re: Cinnamon: Unsafe?

Cinnamon should ideally be avoided, it is used as an insect repellent in some cases, and I haven't heard of anyone feeding it to their crabs either.

Re: 20 Gallon Topper Changes!

No questions. Just jealous. Lol I didn't intend for jealousy, but I am glad you like it! :) The photo itself is a bit dark, there is a piece of driftwood connecting the two platforms together to the dish with earthworm castings. I am still working on quite a bit for the topper, so I definitely will...
