Re: Shell fights and a Twitching Hermit Crab?

Did the spasms kinda look like he was snapping his shell on and off quickly and hard or was it something else entirely?

Re: crabs lethargic and hiding, or just growing?

Even if all your current crabs were jumbos, you'd still have room for more crabs in a 55. Some crabs grow quickly and some grow extremely slow so I wouldn't worry about having a tank full of jumbos anytime soon. There's no reason to be concerned about your heater setup. I switched to the new tank in...

Re: crabs lethargic and hiding, or just growing?

I understand your concerns but I think there's a good chance nothing is really wrong. Your setup and conditions look great to me. Losing one crab to a bad molt over an extended period of time happens even under the best of conditions. Unless there is a reason you'd prefer not to have more, I would d...

Re: keeping violas and indos in same tank

I have a viola in a tank with PP. He's way more aggressive then the others and is a bigger protein eater. I've had to separate him before when he's tried to pull other crabs out of their shells, usually before he molts. Since he's the only one I think I'm going to rehome now with some other violas ...

Re: keeping violas and indos in same tank

I've been keeping violas and indos together for five years. They get along well and there's never been any friction between the species.

Re: Pale blue E

With Es, it may actually be UVB related. I think it was sugarselections who had an E stay blue through several molts, and the only difference was she was using UVB lighting. As adults though they will turn into tans and reds. I've pretty much given up on determining why crabs display certain colors...

Re: Sugar Glider: good pets?

They actually do tend to smell a little sweet. Most of the staple diets developed for sugar gliders include a significant amount of honey to approximate the nectar they eat in the wild. I think they often have a tiny bit of a honey smell. Also, gliders are pretty fanatical groomers of themselves and...

Re: Sugar Glider: good pets?

I just sent you a very long email about gliders and will be happy to help in any way I can. I've owned gliders for over 9 years and love them but they are a huge commitment. My avatar is my 9 y/o old boy, Nocturne. He's a dollbaby but also a major brat. The term "sugar bears" is used by certain mill...

Re: DIY second levels + nets

If you're near a Hobby Lobby or Michaels, both carry fish nets (about 3'x5') for $6. These are genuine used fish nets, are therefore smelly and have a bit of debris on them so a good boil is in order. I crocheted a small climbing net but love the large fish net as it can be cut into pieces to drape...

Re: Crabitat inspiration

Yep, that was my old 90 gallon. I find pictures of my crabitats all over the place by accident. A lot of them on Pinterest. I also find pictures of my sugar glider enclosure and my gliders all over. I've always gotten lots of inspiration from looking at other people's builds and decor so I'm always ...
