Re: Background ideas

Do you have a paper-type background on the outside of your tank? I find that that makes a tank look complete more than almost anything else.

Re: Straw (perlatus) over 5 years?

Any tips for large Straw? Truthfully, absolutely nothing special. I keep them in a community tank with all my other crabs and they get no special treatment. My substrate is 100% coco fiber and I prefer to feed mainly fresh food, not dried. Day/night temp is usually in the 85/75 range and my humidty...

Re: I don't know what just happened

I used to have a large blue that would abandon shell anytime I picked him up. Not much of a problem since I try not to handle my crabs, but it's good to keep yourself aware of who is prone to panicky behavior.

Re: Straw (perlatus) over 5 years?

I have a large straw that I've had for over four years, just a bit shy of five years. I got her from LHC and she was already a large when I got her. Since then she has grown bit by bit as she's molted. I have another straw who has been with me over three years and she was a medium/large when I got h...

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

Hi, I'm new here. We have 3 PP hermit crabs that I got from the the pet store for my kids. There's really not a lot of places that sell crabs around here and I had to go to a lot of pet stores just to find these three. We bought all three that they had. So, I decided to get my kids a couple of stra...

Re: 101 Gallon Exo Terra Crabitat Build w/ video

There are usually a lot more crabs in the moss pit at any given time but I had been running the fogger into the moss pit just before I took the video and a lot of them don't like it so they scattered and hid. The moss pit is the crabs' favorite place to be in the new crabitat and there's generally a...

Re: 101 Gallon Exo Terra Crabitat Build w/ video

It would be hard to get a good shot of what I did with the rock formation ornament because they have plants attached and they're attached to the open end of the horizontal log to hold it up. I'm including a Petsmart link to the decor piece I used because I think that would explain it better. I kind ...

Re: 101 Gallon Exo Terra Crabitat Build

I love it!!wish I was that crafty to put something like that together Perhaps wrongly, I tend not to think of myself as crafty. I do like designing, repurposing, modifying, and building things, but I'm no good with fiddle-y little stuff... as evidenced by my horrible silicone sealant work on this n...

Re: Maybe not a "Blueberry" After All?

My indos actually love my fogger more than any of my other crabs. They like to sit in the mist and groom.

Re: 101 Gallon Exo Terra Crabitat Build

For the shell shop I bought the repti rock water bowl which is a lighter-weight foam material. I trimmed the back and sides with a chop saw and jigsaw. Then I just drilled two holes through the side of the bowl and corresponding holes in the cork. I strung a zip tie through them all to connect. It t...
