Re: Buried crab- but not in it's shell, do I dig to find it?

Thank you so much for the advice! I just dug a little in areas where I knew the other crabs weren't at. I uncovered the top of a buried shell. I'm thinking that may be our missing Mama crab- I may have miscounted my topside shells and didn't realize I had an extra one in there. I didn't fully dig i...

Re: MOLTING ISSUE?!?

Have mostly been lurking, but the saltwater used is important for molting; specifically in shedding old exo. I do not believe that the saltwater you are using is correct (marine saltwater). Most here, including myself, use 'Instant Ocean' brand. When I initially purchased my first 2 crabs from a boa...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Just to finish up here... my larger crab was STILL going in wheel at bed around 2AM last night. I woke up today to find my smaller crab actually sleeping in the wheel so have no idea what went on after 2AM. All of my four crabs are gone during the day whether in hides in small holes they dug or just...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Sorry... 1 more picture. I set the wyze cam on an upside down trash can temporarily to make sure all is well tonight. I previously setup a smaller sized hamster wheel for the crabs (smaller crabs and thought would fit in smaller tank, but I'm generous with the sub) so I just added that in while I fi...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Yep... I ended up setting it up on floor today... and wow... just finishing up trying not to stress the crabs too much so leaving it as is for now. Will make some changes as I have time. Pic from today posted below. After slowly emptying most out of the 20G long, I finally had just ran out of time a...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Hi! [emoji16] I hope your C-19 results came back negative. Sorry to hear things have been so crazy. [emoji33] You should be fine with the tank on the floor. After I moved, I had my 20 gal on the floor for a bit. The worst thing was having to bend over to change food and water, and to check on the c...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Quick question... with a 55G tank does it need to be on a stand? Didn't quite think about the weight with the 20L on the dresser and I'm not confident it'll hold the 55G. Was going to place 55G on carpeted area a few inches from wall on other side of room, but have been searching this forum nonstop ...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Thank you both for the tips/feedback! Sorry about that ear infection, but could have been much worse; hope that's all cleared up and you are feeling well!! People underestimate mental health in general and completely agree have to take care of yourself body/mind. This year just has been a rough one....

Re: Chlorella (Spirulina); safe/unsafe?

Chlorella is a type of microalgae. I see no reason why it wouldn’t be safe. Same goes for spirulina. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thank you! I did a bit more research and saw both for sale in powdered form as HC food. Wasn't sure about crushing the tablets, but that's the only 2 ingredients l...

Re: Chlorella (Spirulina); safe/unsafe?

OK... Assumed they'd be capsules so just was going to use a bottle cap for now depending on the replies here. They are tablets (says it on the first picture lol), solid green color so just crushed a few and put in a bottle cap as mentioned. Will leave outside of tank until I get some more direction....

Chlorella (Spirulina); safe/unsafe?

I have read on here a while ago that Spirulina is a favorite with some crabs. My mother somehow purchased vitamins that she gave to me a month or so ago, but just haven't had the time to check the safe food list or post about this. I will attach a picture; I have not opened yet, but as tablets I'm t...

You're welcome! I hope that method of adding water works well for you without causing any flooding. [emoji4] Good luck with grabbing the tank today. Stay safe too!

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

No problem. [emoji16] And I hope it comes through too. It would be super helpful right now. Sorry you didn't get the chance to grab the tank. Hope it works out for you this weekend. I remember you had the bacterial bloom problem, so I don't blame you for not over misting. I think someone on here (m...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Bless you for putting yourself out there to help us all! Please be careful and remember to take care of yourself too. The unemployment site says self employed people shouldn't sign up yet. I'm not sure how long we're supposed to wait. That's our livelihood. Fingers crossed they do something soon.[e...

Re: Finally Upgraded! (55gal)

Thanks so much!! Petunia thanks you too! It was a lot of work, but the good kind lol. I can't wait for the 2 other crabbies to come up so I can move them. Especially since Beau is separated from his best buddy now. I would def take the free tank and stand. You can always go out and grab the 55 gal ...
