Re: Little Crabby

Aw so tiny and cute!
But please stop handling the little one, it stresses them out. Most of us on here recommend a hands-off approach.

Re: Preservatives & what to watch out for?

If you look at the food section, there is a care sheet about commercial food - it lists some preservatives to watch for.

Re: I impulse bought 1 hermit crab, got more info, and fixed everything...I think. How does it look?

Just a couple of things to add to the already good advice given. Dechlorinated salt water can be used to mix the substrate originally, but then if you add more water later you should use dechlor fresh water. I mixed my sub with fresh, because I didn't know any different at the time. I have never had...

Re: Vacation

I have left mine for a week without problems. Filled up the bowls, and left dry food. Last time, I put different foods in different bowls - calcium in one, leaf litter in another, etc. Of course the food will be moldy by the time you get back, but the crabs don't mind. LOL.

Re: All my crabbies molted at the same time!

Sonny came up from his molt yesterday. I kept track this time, he went under on May long weekend. For such a big guy, he doesn't stay under for as long as Cher does. She went down the first week of July, so I don't expect her back up until October!

Re: Crab Attacks!

1. What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? 5:1 ratio of Playsand and EE. It’s between 5.5 and 6in deep but either way more than 3x deeper than my biggest crab. 2. Do you have gauges in the tank to measure temperature and humidity? If so, where are they located and what temper...

Re: Successful Molt, regrown limbs!

Isn't it amazing how they can do that! I was talking with the doctor I work with, and told him about how my Cher had regrown a leg. The doc wondered why nobody was studying the genes needed, so that it could be replicated in humans! LOL!
