Re: What is it.. strange tumor?

If he is ever a willing subject, more photos if how that thing attaches to his carapace would be amazing! I mean.. Well.. Yeah. It could be a tumour. It's definitely an abnormal growth!! There are a few possibilities though as to how it formed, and I would not go panicking just yet. He needs to mou...

Re: The "TAT MAHAL" awesome crabitat

Very cool, I would like to know what kind of tank it is as well. Where did you get it? I've never seen one like it. Of course the interior is super awesome as well! Can we see some more of your crabs?

I love seeing the big guys [emoji7]

Re: In need of expert advice on Humidity in the tank

Bubblers help a lot! They've been a crabby life saver in my case, you just have to be careful of flooding. In most crab tanks people have much smaller water bowls than the smallest water bubbler is made for (1-5 gallons) which creates a lot of splash back. One way to minimalize this is to use Tupper...

Re: Ms. Rug, back from molting, and a beachy tank rescape

Oooh very nice. I love that curly wood piece. What kind of wood is it? Where'd you get it? Ms. Rug is beautiful as well. All in all 10/10 [emoji16]

Etsy store that sells beaded hermit crab

I just wanted to share this Etsy store that makes super cute beaded hermit crabs that I've personally bought from. I'm always looking for crab trinkets and display items to add to my "crab shrine" and I'm super glad I came across this store.

Re: Happy Adoption Day!

Thanks so much! The crabbies love sitting in the upper shell shops. I either see them there or find poop there all the time lol. And I must say, as far as pigging out goes, I'm putting your Chicken Fajita Night in the tank at least 2x/week. And it's always gone by morning! Your popcorn in olive oil...

Re: I've been told I should post my crabs here!

Wow! So impressive, everythings so beautiful, crabs included! You must have a lot of experience in building tanks, no? Do you have any more pics of deeper in the tank, or close ups of what all you've put into it? I love that the 2 unidentified crabs are in shells that match them, how'd you make that...

Re: Crush force!

Looks like they used a bite force thing. There has GOT to be a relatively simple way we can measure this. Maybe if we get some sticks or something that we know the tensile strength of, and we see what pieces they can snap, that might work? I'm also wondering if we could rig something mechanical tha...

Re: Tank Size

I had a 30 gallon on that same stand for a few months and I can't recommend it in good conscience. It's not listed to hold the weight of the tank with 6in or more sand in it but also my tank had a leak in it I didn't know about, until I upgraded to a new tank and stand and saw the back and bottom wa...

Re: Climbing material help!

Ah, I was not aware that there are metal/screen type fly swatters! I've only seen plastic where I live! Apparently, there are metal swatters as well! My bad! Therefore, I cannot say if a metal swatter is good or bad for a crabitat, other than to watch for rust. Even so, I wouldn't boil it. Anything...
