I'll give you all extra shells, marine salt, and food. (If you want me to ship them, I will only do 1 day shipping, and you will be responsible for the co...

Re: Found dead crab mystery

I dug up Amythyst (sorry girl) and she was still there. I went ahead And buried this mystery crab too. I boiled the shell before I put it in the enclosure so I'm unsure if it's possible one could have hid in there.

Found dead crab mystery

A few months ago, my biggest PP, Amythyst, passed away due to pps (I think). I found out because when I picked her up by the shell, her entire body fell out, and she stayed like that all night. I took her body and placed it inside a shroud and buried her. I have a gravestone and everything. Yesterda...

I just put my new crab in my tank after soaking him and I saw the new guy on top of my old one, and trying to get inside his shell. I immediately separated them and my old one literally RAN AWAY and is currently soaking. New one is looking at other shells. I tried getting the new guy to change shell...

Re: Mixing crabs?

Is it possible the new crab could attack the others or carry a disease or mites?

Mixing crabs?

Hi, I'm currently the proud owner of 2 hermies from the pet store. I'm on vacation right now, and sadly I've seen countless hermit crabs for sale. I want to buy one so it's removed from those horrible conditions, but I'm nervous that the new crab can cause my others to get sick or die. I do not have...

Crab not eating or bathing itself/drinking?

I supply my crabbies with salt and fresh water, and because of my Ecoearth substrate I can tell if they go into the food or water dishes as they leave a little trail. I change out the food every 2-3 days and I change the water either when it's dirty or every 4 days. I've had my hermit crabs for 2 mo...

Cause of crab death?

Tank stuff: I have a 10g class tank with a hoodlight that I keep on during the day and turn off at night. It's slightly purple so I assume it's UVB. I had 1 big guy and 2 little guys (1 little guy was new, the other was living with him since I got them both) I feed them All Living Things food pellet...
