Re: Crabs Molting, Not Enough Substrate

I can’t answer the question about bathing him. I’m not sure it would be terrible if you do but just using all EE has mixed opinions on it and that it is not good. I personally wouldn’t use all EE. It’s best mixed with play sand. Is there no where close to be able to get play sand at?

Re: Found possible molting crab under water dish

Right. I understand and that makes sense. The other 2 already molted and are back up but I’m sure could potentially go down again anytime. I could do at least the one that I know she is not around. Thanks for the advice!!

Re: Found possible molting crab under water dish

Yes! Once everyone is up and not molting I am going to change them out to something like that. She dug a lot deeper to where I couldn’t see her anymore so I did just put the water dish back on there for them. Thanks y’all!

Re: Found possible molting crab under water dish

I did not see any exo and my substrate is about 6 inches deep. It settled some and I didn’t account for that when I set the tank up.

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.

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. ...

Re: Question about humidity.

I thought I’ve read that too. But thought maybe I read
