Re: Hermit crab found after WEEKS missing. White spots on legs.

1. What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? Sterilized sand, 6-10” Curly - Is this at least 3 times as deep as your largest crab? If your crabs is jumbo, you may need deeper sub. 2. Do you have gauges in the tank to measure temperature and humidity? If so, where are they locat...

Re: Molting not sure how long

Why is your sand so dry? Are your temp and humidity good? You can add water along the edges, it will go down and eventually be absorbed into the rest of the substrate. You can put a straw or chopstick or similar down the front of the tank right along the glass, then you can see if there is any water...

Re: Nutrional yeast

Huh. I have been a vegetarian for 30 years, and have never heard of it. But then, I am in Canada. I have definitely heard of nutritional yeast, maybe just different brands. I am in the US this week tho. Where would I find Nooch?

Re: Gnats and Molters

I can't help with the gnats problem, so hopefully someone with experience in that area will chime in! I do have a few suggestions for improving your crabitat. I am not familiar with 'aquarium sand', but wonder if it is safe or not. Substrate needs to be at least 6 inches or 3x as deep as your larges...

Re: Hermit Crab Molting in Water Dish

This means that something is very wrong in your tank. A crab out of it's shell will die.

Do you have gauges in the tank to measure temperature and humidity? If so, where are they located and what temperature and humidity do the...

Re: Has anyone else had issues ordering from Hermie's Kitchen?

LOL, I giggle when I read about people in the US and mail. Here in Canada, it would not be anything abnormal for a package to take two weeks. Fellow Canadians, I am sure that you can relate!

Re: Where to move crabs?

I have just put something extra for them to hide under (even a washed out plastic yogurt container or something like that with a hole cut as a 'door') on one side, and just worked on the other side of the tank.

Re: Crab not moving outside of shell

I am sorry to hear that. If you do decide to get more crabs, there are some improvements that you can make to the tank. Check out the shell guide for information about shells, as there are proper and improper ones to buy.
