Re: I have no idea

I don't think it's bad at all. I mean, what difference does it really make? I mean, we don't do anything differently when they are getting ready to molt, right? I just keep all the conditions as optimal as possible, and feed from the food pyramid.

Re: Not moving out of the moss

Do you have a thermometer and hygrometer? What do they read?

Re: MOVING MOLTING CRABS

Crabs should not molt on the surface - if they are, it is because something is not right in their surroundings, not because they are trusting. I agree with trying to remove a little of the substrate only, and not digging up the crabs. It would be helpful for you to fill in the 'emergency template' s...

Re: Day & Night Cycle?

I don't have any added light source, just the light from the window in the room. Of course if I am in that room when it's dark, they have the room lights too.

Re: Food questions

"If they're alive, they're eating". This was how I guaged my feeding success for many years while they were smaller! LOL! Now that Sonny is so big, I can actually see that some food disappears, but seriously the only way I knew they were eating and drinking when they were smaller was that they were ...

Re: Why are our crabs not eating or moving around?

Please do not assume that just because there is a photo of a hermit crab or that the product , the product is not deadly - it definately can be. Calcium sand can kill hermit crabs, from my understanding, and should be removed from the tank. Sea salt may not kill hermit crabs quickly, but it lacks al...

Re: Why are our crabs not eating or moving around?

I believe that All Living Things sand is actually calcium sand, which is NOT good for crabs. Definately want to use play sand, mixed with EE, and 'sand castle' consistency, at least 6 inches (or three times as deep as your larges crab, whichvever is deeper). I am also not sure if the All Living Thin...

Re: And now it's a bottle baby kitten...

I have a brain damaged cat too! She is a perma-kitten, her personality is so kitten like, and will never change. The brain damage makes her that much more endearing.

What about Solange? It means solemn or dignified!

Re: Food questions

I have used a lot of different foods from the HCP. If I put those dry foods in, I leave them for 3 days or so. If I put fresh foods in, I only leave them for 24hrs (unless I forget for an extra day, but then they are pretty gross and fuzzy, bleh). I honestly don't pay as much attention to which food...

I have only ever given egg shells from cooked eggs, so no worry of smell.

Like Stella said, they won't get stuck under shells. I presume you don't have them stacked ten deep or anything!

Re: WHY did they suddenly die ??!?

Just an FYI about Wardley's hermit crab food - in Canada it is sold as Wardley Turtle Delight. It's the same thing, 100% dried shrimp, just a different name.
