Nice! Both Sonny and Cher are under right now, which honestly has happened only a few times over the years!
I'm wondering if this was a first and only time or if they would follow suit each time.

All my crabbies molted at the same time!

I got 3 little ones and all three decided to be samesies and go under. My littlest one, Freddie, took about 2 weeks to join the others but he did his thing. It was a lonely few weeks without seeing my little ones until a few days ago Scooby submerged, and tonight all of them are out and about. Fredd...

Those are handmade by a member here on this forum, and I believe mlakers is the one who makes them.

You can also go to their online Etsy shop, which is called EarthWaterFireStudio :)
Thank you so much! Checking right now and I see those cute divided dishes :)

Hermit food plate

I have seen some pics of different members with a flower like plate for their hermies. It looks like a flower with petals and each "petal" you can add different foods. Where can I get something like that? I tried googling but no help. The plate I have is small so if I put a banana and it gets liquid...

Re: Hamster wheel, yes or no?

Thanks y'all. I only have a 10 gal for now, and I keep wondering if I can add a wheel. We have a drill so my boyfriend can do the handy work :)

I really want one for my little ones

Re: Hamster wheel, yes or no?

For the wheels are you guys making holes on it? To add the zip ties? If so how? A drill?

Nope, you want to measure the inside of the shell, from end to end, like this. Image

Re: Loss when it comes to shells, pics included.

I'd buy .75 (3/4) inch and 1" shells. Your readings look accurate. There's no saying how much your crabbies will grow during their molt, so give them options for shells. Also, after your receive your shells, boil them and soak them in salt water. They will go crazy for that! But make sure the shell...

Re: Loss when it comes to shells, pics included.

.5 is half an inch. .75 is 3/4 inch. Does that help at all? You can look on a measuring tape as well for a better visual reference. I give 5 shells per crab. If they are the same size, they may fight over a shell. It has happened! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk I tried measurement tape before ...

Re: Loss when it comes to shells, pics included.

Yes, I believe you are measuring them right. Just order the next sizes up from that. When ordering, look at the shell opening size and not the size of the total shell. Are you asking what sizes to order? Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk Yes, honestly I have no idea how to incorporate these numbe...

Re: Do hermies hide shells?

Yeah, mine bury shells sometimes. I'm not sure if they purposefully bury them, or if when they are digging, shells just get covered up with substrate. Do you have lots of shells for them to choose from? They could be swapping so much because they aren't happy with what they have on - or of course t...

Do hermies hide shells?

A little back story: Scooby is my shell swapper, he loves changing shells. After I got him he changed to a better shell, a brown one. Then he changed to a green one, I guess that wasn't good so he went back to the brown one. 2 days ago, Daphne finally changed from her arrival shell to another brown ...
