Crab Found His Way to Netting

Heard some strange noises as I was trying to fall asleep so I decoded to check on my crabs. Seacil has found his way to the top of the crabitat and is hanging onto the netting for dear life. Ive tried nudging him to see if he'd let go but it looks like this guy is staying put. The only way I can ass...

I just introduced a new crab into my crabitat since one of my first 2 crabs passed away. The new crab and old one are close in size. I placed old crab in the drinking water followed by new crab. They're both now in the corner of the tank. How would I know if the crabs are getting along fine? What si...

Cuttlebone and food q's

Hello, I know that cuttlebone is good for crabs so I'm planning on getting one for mine, but I need a link to one that's safe for hermit crabs since the ones I find are for birds and such. Also, is there a way to not make food mold in the tank or no? Do I need to treat the cuttlebone before I put in...

Re: Crab Shell Found Empty

Sometimes crabs hide really deep in shells. You might want to check them again. I would recommend to get a water conditioner for tap or spring water called prime or aqueon tap water solution, and instant ocean salt for saltwater. I’ve seen premixed waters and I don’t think they are recommended.- yo...

One is very active, I hear him every night and I know he eats because there's less food in the morning. My second is buried so I believe he's preparing to molt. Do crabs not defecate ofte...

Re: Crabs Not Moving

Do you have a specific heater that you recommend? The reason I chose a lamp was cause I couldn't find a heater with good reviews.

For about the past week, both have been hiding in their shells in the same spot of the tank. They dont seem to move, but I do know they are alive. I've tried moving them to ...
