Re: What size Ultratherm for a 75G?

I have the 6x47 on a 55. Insulated entire back and sides plus I have to keep a blanket on top and hanging over the front which helps reduce condensation as well. Although I just had a flood due to condensation build up over time. Unless I have a small leak in a pool that I didn’t catch. I’m looking ...

Re: Can crabs have cornflowers?

As far as I know they are safe. I have bought one of those reptile flower toppers before.

Re: Koda is being... weird.

I’ve had almost the same thing happen. Over a year later he has grown into his “too big” shell. But it actually seemed like he grew into it rather quickly. It’s just been over a year at this point.

Re: HELP! Hermit crab lethargic after molting!

My experience with lethargic crabs are minimal but I’ll share in case it helps. The two crabs I got as friends for our original crab were not too active at first. They spent a lot of time visiting the pools. Almost like they had been deprived of water. One of them dug down not long after purchase. S...

Re: Lonely crab

Lately I’ve seen some adopting happening on Facebook hermit crab groups. I even saw one close to me but 10 other people already commented on wanting them. I really don’t have room for more anyway. Just thought I’d mention Facebook if you haven’t already looked there.

Re: Blackberry is STILL down.

I’ve left crabs that died under the sub with no ill effects. My other crabs finally exposed the shell and there was nothing left but the shell. My opinion is to never disturb them unless you absolutely have to.

Re: Dried Insects Smell Off

I have some dried insects that seem fine after a year but my little container of dried bloodworms got invaded by some kind of tiny Caterpillars. They move extremely slow and are smaller than a grain of rice. They seem to be eating the blood worms and breaking them down into almost a powder. I don’t ...

This is why it is important that crabs have at least 3 to 5 extra shells per crab, which are of the appropriate size and type. I don't really think it is a good thing to see, it means that resources are scarce. This make sense, and has caused me to think on it further. Because if there were more sh...

Re: Lola is naked!!!!!!

I know it’s tough but don’t go blaming yourself. She probably endured too much before you got her. You gave her the best chance.
