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...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

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 ...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Just wanted to stop in and say thank you all that helped out. I just finished a rough stretch Friday/Saturday/Sunday at work and now asking to test for C-19 in NJ... so it's been difficult. Not sure I've been this frustrated or exhausted, but enough about me! I hope all of you are doing well and sta...

Re: PP in a Pink Murex?

I have no explanation or advice....just wanted to say what a cutie he is in those funny pants! Haha thanks!

PP in a Pink Murex?

I adopted a PP last year and had some aggression with shells even though there are plenty of appropriate preferred shells to the point that this crab was rocking another in a turbo shell. Finally decided to add some more, even if unpopular, and my adopted PP is and has been in a pink murex since (wh...

Re: Finally Upgraded! (55gal)

Just got a chance to look at your pics here. Take a look at my reply in "Miscellaneous". After seeing your picture and setup, I'm leaning back towards purchasing a 55G early next week. Although a free tank with stand and lights is still tempting and is larger than my 20G long. I also have 4 and they...

Re: Adopted (2) Crabs - Need help with Substrate

As noted, purchase the playsand for children that says "screened/washed" as there are many different playsands available. I use the Quikrete brand, but they also have different sands available depending on use (unscreened and unwashed more for mixing with concrete). A 50lb bag is <$5 here in NJ at H...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

I totally understand! Thank you for putting yourself out there to help others during these crazy times. Just make sure you take care of yourself too! Our Petco and Home Depot stores are open too, but the hours are cut short (both are only open til 6pm). I'm also in one of the PA counties ordered to...
