I have found phytoplankton in one of the pet stores, so now I have some proper food to them! :D I've also bought sea salt, since I've used up all the salt I had in all water changes I've done for the little ones. :lol:

I just want to tell you all that they are still alive. :D I check them at least once every hour, and change most of their water at least 3-4 times a day. And I still haven't gotten any answers from THCP, so I hope they see my email soon. :) This is how I keep them for now: http://uploads.ifokus.se/u...

LOL! You tell us!! :hlol: [smilie=tongue.gif] Wow, that's interesting to hear. I know (on the old nature documentaries) male fiddler crabs do take their mates underground when the tides come. And the Christmas Island Red Land Crabs do so supposedly as well...so it may be the case here. It may expla...

I just have to tell you all that mommy and daddy crab has resurfaced. :P I saw the food dish starting to bump up and down, and then the female stuck her head up under it. :hlol: The male came up right after, so they were buried together at the same place. Is it possible that hermit crabs mate underg...

Ooohhh I love your tank! Where did you get the cork bark and the plant with the tiny round leaves? Thank you so much! :D I bought them at one of our local pet stores. The fake plant with the round leaves is a "Fluval Chi"-decoration, so it should be sold in your pet stores too. :) http://www.aquari...

I am so excited for you! And I love seeing the pics (and the vid) of all the cute little crab babies. It's weird to think that all our crabs used to be that tiny and fragile. :) Makes you wonder what their mothers and fathers looked like or if any of their siblings survived to adulthood. hehe Anywa...

I usually hear back by the next day when I’ve emailed them, so maybe you'll hear from them soon. By the way, do you have bubblers in your water dish? Also, can you post pics of your whole tank, it would be fun to see it! No, I don't have any bubblers in any of my water dishes. :) Of course, but it ...

Did you hear from Tammy or Kurt yet at THCP? You can call them if it doesn't cost too much (see website), it may be worth the conversation! I’m glad you still have some alive! My son shared your news with his great grandma and I made my husband see your photos, I think we’re just as excited as you!...

I just have to show you some more pics and even a very blurry video. :lol: The dead eggs wasn't so dead after all. :shock: I got some more out of the crabitat, and when I sprayed them with water, the eggs burst and out swam little hermit crab bab...

I hope when you have the time you can sit down and tell us all about how you keep your hermits. I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure this is the first documented case of a hermit crab being able to reproduce in solid captivity. (As opposed to sitting outside half the year in an enclosure.) You hav...

WOW! How incredible! Maybe you could team up with a local fish store and talk them into letting you use one of their salt water tanks to help with the process. Please keep us posted! I've never seen anything like that before :) It's only one fish store here in my town that really keeps salt water f...
