There is some cursing b/c of a ludacris song "move out the way" I put in the middle lol We got these crabs from a guy who didn't know what breed they were and I was new to crabs.

one of my crabs bothered another while molting

I saw this ITTY bitty crab at petsmart and it only had one claw and all of it's legs were gone. It had a shell way too small on. I decided we needed to get it out of there. We've had him for a week and he started getting little gooey bits where his legs would be. Great, I thought. He would hopefully...

Two of the four have dug down right away and not come back up. They were living in a tank with substrate lower than the width of a pea, so never ...

Also, forget to say thank you so much for your help! One other thing...since I'm getting these crabs from a guy who doesn't want them anymore should I be looking for things like mites?

Re: New to crabbing. working on crabitat before adopting, check it out please

Okay that sounds perfect then(as far as the heating pad goes). My substrate is about 3.5 inches at the moment. I wanted to bring it up to about 5 inches with the extra bags coming from amazon this week. The crabs the guy has look very tiny from the pictures. I'm sure in the future I will have to upg...

New to crabbing. working on crabitat before adopting, check it out please

Hey everyone! My daughter is 9 and interested in getting a couple of hermit crabs. I've done some research and thought it would be a fun pet for both of us to take care of. I even found a guy in the area looking to get rid of a bunch of hermit crabs though we only are looking for 2-3. I started the ...
