Re: New owner and very worried!

Here’s what I’ve gathered from what little knowledge and experience I have: It seems like it depends on what they endure before we get them. 12 years ago my son wanted two crabs from a beach store. We got them of course. My wife nor I didn’t have any interest so my mother in-law took care of them. W...

Re: Question about larger pools

Just so happens I have a 55 gallon tank and a 5 gallon tank my neighbor gave me that I’m not using yet. I’m currently using 1 gallon Tupperware pools. It might depend on how many crab you have in there because you are going to be taking up some molting space. My 55 gallon is 48 x 13 x 21. I think a ...

Re: Lonely Crabby got friends but aren’t so friendly and cool colors on the big guy.

Thanks GB for settling my nerves a bit. Things do seem to be settling a bit. I guess Crabby didn’t like the intruders at first. Funny CL77 , I’ll call him little T. Lol. And there’s no one smaller for him to pick on. Darn it! Now I feel like I need a bigger tank! At least a 75g but that’s only 5 inc...

Lonely Crabby got friends but aren’t so friendly and cool colors on the big guy.

So I’ve been restraining myself on getting Crabby some new friends from a pet store. I don’t want to support that. So I’ve been searching to adopt and turns out many of my daughters friends went to the gulf this summer. And they know about her “my” crabs lol. One of her friends decided to get three ...

Re: I got Hermit Crabs[emoji3590][emoji886][emoji3590]

Sounds like you’re on the right track to me. I try to keep my temp and humidity at or above 80. Sometimes at night it will fall below 80 especially during winter. I only have purple pinchers as well. Use salt that is used for saltwater aquariums like instant ocean for the saltwater pool. Offer plent...

Re: Air stones vs emitters

I was thinking the emitters might cause less splash out but I thought maybe someone here had tried them before

Re: Can I see your water pools?

It’s hard to tell in these pics but they are deep enough for the crabs to submerge. Although I will be getting something deeper sometime. As well as hopefully finding at least a 75 gallon tank. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200714/5d11943c5e38f7e419b6336cf14857c5.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cd...

Re: Kosher salt with anticaking agent. Ok to boil wood ?

So I guess there is kosher salt without the anticaking agent. I’m not familiar with ferrocyanides

Kosher salt with anticaking agent. Ok to boil wood ?

Is this safe to use to treat wood? It has yellow prussiate of soda. Image
