Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

This isn't your every day business, this is a live animal business with no one else providing the same service, and probably because of what she's going through now. If she had competition, she would need to tighten up shop a bit, but for now, she knows most of the people waiting on their order wil...

After all I've heard about this seller I'm really glad I canceled my order and got a refund.I probably have a better chance of success with the 3 E's I got at Petco.

Re: More Activity Because of No Fake Lighting?

Strangely, I've seen the opposite. My smaller hermies definitely started getting more active when I added a UVB light. I cannot say the same for my larger hermies, though.

Re: Wandering crab

Most of my small PPs are active during the day. I don't get to see them do much but they do move from spot to spot, branch to branch.

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

And I just checked the phone number listed with the Paypal account. It's the information number for area code 631 (555-1212).

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

It's odd that the shipping delay is due to a holiday in the supplier's country, given that E's come from Ecuador and Peru.

Re: How long does de-stressing take?

Any time a crab is inactive I think it's a worrisome situation. "Healthy" destressing usually involves digging or hiding. Sitting in corners is not what I like to see a new crab doing as it's usually a sign that something isn't right - either with them or their enclosure. Make sure to double check ...

Re: OMG!

I picked a hermie off the underside of the tank lid this morning. He was holding on to the hinge and had somehow managed to climb all the way to the other end of the hinge from the only thing he could have used to climb up.

I got them Friday, and I've spent all weekend getting advice from old post on this form. Based on the suggestions from the food subforum I replaced the c...
