Re: Crab dominancy and rolling their shells in food

Hmm, the "food rolling" is new to me. I've never seen it before in my tank, definitely odd.
And with the pecking order, yes, I have an order in my tank too. Pine is most dominant and usually gets to the food first, claims shells first, ect. Dominancy can be normal.

Re: New Crab Owner!

Whenever your crab is done molting I'd suggest adding more substrate, like you said! If you can get your hands on some play sand, I'd also recommend that. It's at a lot of hardware stores!
You look to be good to go otherwise!

Re: I can’t find Tiny!

I have two teenies, Mango and Koda. It's quite easy to find Koda as she insists on living in a shell 3x her size. For Mango, though, even in my small 16gal tote it can be hard to find her! They find ways to hide. Don't worry, he's probably just hiding or buried.

Re: New Crab Owner!

Welcome to HCA! First off.. what size tank do you have? How deep of substrate and what kind? Is there heat and humidity? I personally recommend Etsy for hermit crab food although they can eat a lot of what we do. The commercial brands have bad things in there which can harm your crabs. HermitGrub or...

Cleaning Day

Every 3-4 weeks I replace the crab's water, move things around and make sure everything is top-top shape. So today I did just that! Currently 3 of 5 crabs are up, meaning Pumpkin and Mango are presumably molting. Pine said she was quite unhappy with being bothered, and Blackberry said she hated bein...

Lighting?

Hi there! My tank is in my bedroom which doesn't have a lot of light, so I'm wondering what are some good tank lighting ideas? The inside of the tank can get pretty dark, especially at night, and I'm trying to find something to get the tank more visible. In case you're wondering, I have a 16gal(appr...

Koda is being... weird.

Koda is the tiniest crab I've ever owned. about as big as my thumbnail. When I got her ( a few months ago) she was in a shell that fit her perfectly. She recently went down to molt (I assume?). Before she went down, she changed into a shell 3x her size. It's sooooo big. She goes wayyyyy into the bac...

Re: What do to about half surface molter

Does the tank smell bad? It's possible he did molt, and the thing you see is the exoskeleton. However, most crabs should dig down to molt if in the right conditions.

Re: Just showing off my crabs

Really odd question... is that a bunny in the cage, under the tank?
