Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

All you can do, Nate, is send LiveHermitCrabs.com an email, cc-ing PayPal, officially canceling your order on the grounds of nonfulfillment after a reasonable amount of time. At least you'll have it on record that you've acted in good faith in case LHC.com tries to bill you at a later date. Oh, I k...

Re: How long can h-crabs survive in a partially sealed tank?

I leave my crabitat closed 100% of the time.

I don't have a bubbler.

I don't have a fan.

And I have not had any problem with oxygen deprivation.

It will turn to mud.
