Re: Rough couple weeks at the 'tat!

I do run the bubblers non stop, but the air flow is dampened so I minimize the bubbles. I think what happened is that I bought new stones so the bubbles were stronger and it made a bigger splash. That coupled with the breakdown of EE made a disgusting mess.

Rough couple weeks at the 'tat!

Two weeks ago, I decided to rework my Crabitat. My plants are getting pretty rough looking, so I removed most of them and just rearranged. This is what I ended up with. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/14/11/05/f78929a4e1cbf9374eac94ad97819420.jpg http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/14/11/05/31d9ce83...

I love the last pic. They probably think they're in paradise after that horrible home!

Anyone else have crabs with tunnel fever?

I'm wondering if this has something to do with the seasonal change. Our Indian summer seems to be over here in Pittsburgh, and for the past two weeks my crabs have been tearing the tank to pieces. I'm pretty sure my big girl Straw is preparing for a molt, but the rest are joining in too. It's defini...

Re: dumbest things people have said about your crabs/other p

I get questions all the time about how I make them live so long. The comment usually ends with, "I had them as a kid, and they lived about a week." I don't mind though, it's good to educate the masses!

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

My blues are still doing very well. I had 1/5 pass with this shipment. I wouldn't expect much better odds if I had purchased 5 PPs from a pet store. I've had very good luck with all the crabs I've bought from LHC, with the exception of 3 small Indos, which were really unhealthy last year. I've order...

Re: Blueberry Questions!!!

Still looks like a blue to me. It doesn't have the very pounced stitch marks that a ruggie has. It also has the eyeliner marks under eye like a blue. Ruggies are much more "angular" meaning pointier shield leg, almost pointier BP. Yours is rounded and chunky. Much like a blue. I think he just found ...

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

The straws are amazing compared to the last time I ordered them. They are bright red and gorgeous. The ruggies are amazing aswell. Their antennas are bright orange. One of the Viola's are amazingly purple... oooh I am in love. But the other viola is lacking some serious color. Im sort of questionin...

Re: Blueberry Questions!!!

One clear way to know a blue is the yellowish color in their joints, which yours have. They also have big ugly bodies to Kuza's point. The one in question doesn't look like a ruggie to me. The shield leg is not the right shape, and I don't think the BP is right for a rug, too. I can't really see the...

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

My blues all came in happy and healthy. My husband wasn't about to give them their baths, so they waited til I came home for that. All 5 seem to be doing well and are currently shell shopping. I overloaded them with choices. So all's well that ends well. I posted pics on a separate thread, and I'll ...

Ugh. Mine didn't come today, despite my tracking saying they would. The tracking did show that they were coming "Priority Mail Express-One Day" through usps. Now I'm really nervous! I have my iso set up for my husband tomorrow. He's not into the crabs, so I'm hoping that he does ok! http://img.tapat...
