Just to clarify, your humidity is 80-85 or your temperature?

Re: Crabbies not eating

The humidity is pretty good, around 80 to 85 degrees F. You can feel it when opening the lid to feed them. I do have the Ultratherm wrap in foil and then cardboard box, I followed one of the post in here. The Ultratherm is even bigger than my tank on the side and it fits perfect from above the subst...

Re: Crabbies not eating

It is probably around 75, I have an Ultratherm on the back and another on the side and it havent been able to hit 80, unless I turn the AC on the house off.

I checked on them again and the little one is out and about, the other 2 are still hanging in the moss

So I checked their hideout, none of them there, than the moss and all of them were there alive. Not sure why they havent been eating or being a...

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 ...
