Re: Molting in EE Only

Thank you for such a great answer! To be honest he could be just digging down to destress, that's a valid point. I'm not sure. As to the protein: I'm looking into giving them crickets and mealworms, but I'm not sure if I can give them freeze-dried or not. I believe Flukers sells them freeze-dried. ...

Re: Molting in EE Only

First off, is there anything specific that’s leading you to believe that the crab is moulting, rather than just digging down to de-stress or explore? It’s very common for crabs to tunnel immediately after being introduced to a new home in order to de-stress, so your little guy may just be doing that...

Re: Picky crabs

I’m starting to get a little concerned about the eating habits of my crabs (I have 5 PP). They don’t seem to eat anything I give them, except popcorn. And then they only ate a little bit. I literally have 40 different kinds of organic foods for them that I’ve bought off of the different recommended...

Re: Popcorn fanatics!

Mine are also popcorn fanatics - every few months or so I air pop a batch, grind it roughly in the food processor, and then divide out cup-sized amounts and mix those each up with different amendments (e.g., one batch gets mixed with kelp powder, bee pollen, coconut, powdered cuttlebone, and ground ...

Re: Fellow gardening nerds: on marigolds, echinacea, and other flowers

I used to dry and sell actual marigold flowers and everyone loved the mix for their hermits. It was a top seller for years and I never had a complaint. I would suggest shredding the blooms before drying as the cores retain moisture and take forever to dry, leading to mold if not left on long enough...

Fellow gardening nerds: on marigolds, echinacea, and other flowers

Hi folks! It’s that time of year when I start dehydrating some of the hermies’ summer garden favourites so they’ll have access during the (looooooong Canadian) winter.. Today’s herb, flower, foliage day, and I have all the usual suspects going: borage (flowers), calendula (flowers), basil (leaves, s...

Re: Looking through my tank

I really like the cork log you have in there. I use mainly EcoEarth and I know if I get one and put it in there, it will mold within like a week or less. I never had issues with molding, but a boil in saltwater always helps mold growth. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk I never have issues with mold...

Re: a few questions re: flowers vs fruit vs foliage

Ehh. The list has always been a headache. It's 25 years old, has rarely been edited, and staff kept forgetting to update it before deleting old topics. Generally, it is the whole plant unless otherwise stated. Even when otherwise stated, what is listed is only what was food trialed and does not mea...

Thanks!! It was a long time coming and there's a lot more to do, but so far the crew seems happy. And it's nice to know that when I'm able to make the space to replace the bottom tank with a 90G, the topper will transfer :D

a few questions re: flowers vs fruit vs foliage

Hiya. A few questions about the safe food list and the way certain foods are presented, which I never thought to ask before now, and apologies if I've overlooked something that would point me in the right direction. Specifically, I'm confused by some listings specifying the "safe" part of the plant ...

Re: Bell Pepper Seeds

coming late to the party (as always), but I've found that while my guys don't care for bell peppers (flesh or seeds, won't touch either), they go wild for chilis (fresh or dehydrated, both flesh and seeds) - the hotter the better, it seems.

Awesome! So you didn’t flip your exo terra upside down? I flipped all of mine upside down. I wanted to keep the humidity in.
