Re: Trying to manage substrate moisture... Clueless

Sand tends to dry out from the top down. You can control how much by lightly spraying, but be cautious of how much is sinking to the bottom!

😂 No. I suck at multiple windows on my phone. Sorry! There was another post from a bit back that also had some info.

Re: Leaving for a Week and a Half

The biggest problem I've seen over the years with people going on vacation is lack of water. They can go without food, but they need a constant water source.

Re: Is it eggs?

No, because they will come right back. The tank is a perfect environment for them, and in exchange they keep mold and rotting food away.

Re: Heat lamp on top of plexiglass?

Both. Plexi is very sensitive to heat, and plastic does release dangerous gasses when overheated.

Re: How long do you keep your heater on?

Once the heat gets turned off on a tank, it'll drop back to room temperature really quickly.

Re: Naked crab

Those shells all look to be too large for him, unless it's the camera angle. The one he is wearing is an extremely heavy shell. I'd try to find him some smaller lighter choices. Green turbos are a great choice for a small guy like this, I've found them at Walmart in the craft section (by the vases) ...

The basic hermit crab care sheet is the best starting point. It covers both set-up and daily care needed: http://www.hermitcrabassociation.com/ph ... 0&t=119273

Re: Calcium/food question

You can also find crushed calcium and oyster shell at any place that sells chicken supplies. Even our local Walmart carries bags. It's a few bucks for 5 lbs.

Re: Crabbing Smells: Is there anything I can do?

All an air purifier is, is a big quiet adjustable fan with a filter in front of it. You can make your own with a box fan and either specialty filter pads or a furnace filter! It's not as pretty and can be a little noisier, but it has the same effect. For deodorizing, make sure the filter has charcoa...

Re: Do hermies hide shells?

My Es did constantly. They would drag them into their tunnels never to be seen again. The PPs didnt seem to be so deliberate, but if they were on the ground they would get buried accidentally.

Re: C. rugosus video

Soj!!!!! Oh my gosh it's good to see you again. 😊 I've been wondering how you and your hermits and your snails were doing!

If he has his old exo off already (double limbs found) and hasn't moved by now, I dont think it's good news. Molting crabs often won't have an odor immediately post molt if they pass. I'm so sorry.

Re: Substrate issue can you help please?

Most people recommend more sand that ecoearth, since the ecoearth can absorb too much water. However, I think that probably saved you from having standing water in this case. Misting is rarely recommended anymore as it adds too much water into the substrate. Water droplets want to move with gravity,...
