Re: Zoomed Bearded Dragon diet (?)

I agree with Rawrgeous, as well as the others on here. Not sure where you got off on the personal attacks. But we do take pride in knowing what is good & proper for our crabs around here. So any "agenda" is just good ol knowledge of hermit crab tendencies from their natural habitats. Please take ca...

Re: Zoomed Bearded Dragon diet (?)

I did not post this question to give you a platform for your extremists' agenda.

I posted it to get a question answered.

I also wanted to get someone to add the foods to either the safe or unsafe list. Could someone please do so?

Zoomed Bearded Dragon diet (?)

Does anyone know if Zoomed's Bearded Dragon food is okay for hermies?

What about the one from T-Rex?

Re: House is being carpeted, need to move tank

Do they have to be moved downstairs? Can't you ask the carpet guys to shift them from one side of the room to the other?

A 20G is not terribly heavy; two husky guys can shift it.

Re: Cypress bedding safe?

No, unfortunately as the pieces can get caught in a shell and puncture the crab's abdomen. I'm going to link our substrate guide as it will list the most common materials/ brands used. http://hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=92542 Is there any evidence that this has actually hap...

I have E's !!!!!!!!!

After a wait of months and months I finally got Ecuadorian hermmit crabs. :banana: I was driving by an independent pet store and stopped in just to see if they had crabs. I wouldn't normally do business with them (they work with puppy mills and lock puppies in small cages) but this time they had E's...

Re: What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

Re: Crab obsessed with suction cups

I couldn't figure out why, every night, one particular suction cup holding up some netting kept coming off. A few days ago I figured it out. One of my crabs climbed up and started clawing at the suction cup until it, the netting and the crab fell to the ground. The crab made a pretty impressive thu...

Re: How to mix sub properly help

You need to expand the bricks first by letting them soak in a bucket of (treated) water. Once the bricks have grown in volume, dump some sand, and then some EE, in the aquarium and mix by hand. Repeat until you reach the desired depth. Don't went the sand; the EE will be wet enough and you can alway...

Re: Acceptable foods

None of these are worth keeping, Nate, as they all contain either copper sulfate or ethoxyquin, preservatives unsafe for hermit crabs. The All Living Things variety diet does not contain those ingredients, so far as I can tell from reading the tiny print on the label. It's also not on any of the li...

Acceptable foods

I need help identifying whether the food I have is safe and or good. I have taken in rescue hermies from a couple owners over the past couple weeks, and tonight I started clearing out the supplies that came with the crabs. I have 5 different types of commercial hermit crab food, and I need to know w...
