Re: Possible fight after a new molter comes up

Hi! thanks for the response! Yes I know I am at my limit with them. Lol I was toying with the idea of getting another one and my friend said she knew someone trying to get rid of hers and there were 3 in a small tote carrier and I couldn’t leave them like that. I completely understand your take on i...

Possible fight after a new molter comes up

Hello! I’ve had my hermits for about 2 1/2 months. I went from a 5 gal to a 10 and now 29. I got 2 from petsmart thinking they would be easy pets... no lol anyways so Scuttle molted almost immediately in the 10 gal. After he finished molting I moved them over into the 29 only a few days after that. ...

Oh okay! Do you go out and just get sand from the ocean or do you order it?

I thought I’ve read that too. But thought maybe I read
somewhere else it being too high is damaging as well.

Question about humidity.

Hello! Hope y’all are doing good today!! My humidity hangs around 85-97% and my temps around 75. Is that too high humidity for my hermits? I do not have any condensation issues or anything. I just got some heaters from a friend of mine and have the small one on for right now hoping maybe it can help...

That is funny!! My one crab who is up isn’t overly interested in mine. He crawls all through it and stops for a second but not for long. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Re: Why is my hermit crab laying upside down

My hermit crab has been laying on his back for a couple of days and today is curled up in his shell. I am concerned about him, but dont want to move him. He did seem to move a little when I turned the light on, but still laying on his back. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190913/4a7472ec8257b293...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

He is becoming more and more outgoing and he lovvves to climb things. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190912/8827bd10557a0cf96a58e6f6a542bc92.jpg I checked the camera when I got up to use the bathroom and I heard a bunch of noise.

Re: Cholla wood moldy

I always put a small fan in the tank (a little plastic "personal desk" fan, I've usually found them at Walgreens), on a timer so there's a "breeze" on a regular basis. The crabs love it--they would often sit on a high place in front of the fan and just wave their feelers around in the breeze--and o...

Cholla wood moldy

Hey all! I got some cholla wood from cholla queen on Etsy and I soaked them and let them dry out as much a possible. I will say that I was pretty eager to get them in my tank and didn’t let it dry ALL the way out and now it’s molded 😔 any way to avoid that for the future? I am soaking it again and m...
