Re: There’s mites crawling on my Halloween crab and he’s suffering help

Were you able to read through the care sheet re- mites? I read stuff on mites but honestly hermit crabs are a lot different than Halloween crabs and also I’m pretty sure these mites are getting inside the mouth of my crab so idk how I would get rid of that. It doesn’t say anything about that becaus...

Re: There’s mites crawling on my Halloween crab and he’s suffering help

How do you know what kind of mites they are? If they cam from a stick, they are probably not a harmful type. Here's the HCA info about mites: http://www.hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=67&t=92530 Yea I’m pretty sure they came from the stick and it was only on one crab, but they’re g...

Re: There’s mites crawling on my Halloween crab and he’s suffering help

I did a search on here for mites and found this. I copied just part of the post. The best way I've found to get rid of mitesis... wait for it... more mites. Predator mitesare species of mites that eat other mites(and other tiny insects) but not your crabs. They've been used in gardening to control ...

Is there any way you can borrow a phone with a good camera and post a photo?
I already know what kind of mites they are and that they’re harmful. Nobody has an actual camera that is meant for taking really detailed photos, just basic phone cams

Re: My Halloween crabs lethargic and can’t balance or get off his back

One thing I want to note is that this crab died only about a month after I got her and she came from a really stressful and possibly terrible environment. She was springing back to life towards the end and I was almost sure she would be completely better the next day, only to find out I was complete...

Re: My Halloween crabs lethargic and can’t balance or get off his back

Are these the same crabs that you had in October, or new ones? Or some of each? If new, do you know what kind of conditions they were in before you got them? When did you get the 55 gallon up and running? Did the crab surface molt? From what I have read, they should bury just like hermit crabs. Als...

What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? coconut fiber and it’s 4 inches plus m...

Dropping limbs usually suggest they are weak and stressed. Try to cut down on stressors, or even separating the crabs? As long as tank conditions are good, I'll just monitor and hope that she pulls through.

Re: MY HALLOWEEN CRAB IS BUBBLING AND HER LEG FELL OFF

I was asking because you asked why your crab was still dropping limbs. if your crab is dropping limbs due to environmental stress, which seems to be the general hypothesis, then its health/condition isn’t likely to improve unless/until environmental conditions are improved. I feel very terrible abo...

Right now the 50 ml bottle is the same price as the 100 ml bottle, so you can double the size for no extra cost. It might change, but hopefully you can grab it up before they raise the price. [emoji106]
