Re: Does anyone have photos or videos of crabs "ka-noodling"

Thanks, the second thread i already saw, but I'm still not sure if my crabs were doing anything or if one was just taking a ride on the other's back. Its definitely not a behavior i've ever seen before and they stopped before i could get my camera.

Does anyone have photos or videos of crabs "ka-noodling"?

I think i might have caught my 2 of my crabs doing the hanky-panky, but I'm not positive because i've never seen it before. If anyone has photos or videos of their crabs doing it please let me know!

Re: Really long surface molt?

I don't really want to pick him up and disturb him again to see if he feels light, just in case. The substrate inside the crabitat started out smooth, and it is still perfectly smooth so he definitely hasn't moved out from underneath the little coconut hide i put him under. :'(

It's treated with dechlorinated brackish water. in the main tank there is 9 inches and in the critter keeper there is about 3 2. Do you have gauges in the tank to measure temperature and humidity? If ...

Re: Plastic Tote Crabitat?

I haven't personally, but a close friend of mine kept her 3 apps in a 30 gallon tote for 4 years, she drilled some small holes in the lid for airflow, besides that she used it as a regular tank with UTH's stuck on the side.

I found this while on youtube, its a video of a guy learning from natives, how to catch a coconut crab. He finds a juvenile bigger than any crab that i've seen. I never realized they were so blue!

Re: Help! My Hermit crab is naked and lost his big claw

He can re=grow his pincher during his next few molts, but you really need to get him re-shelled as quickly as possible. Look inside his old shell and see if there is anything sharp that fell in like small rocks or bits of sand that would make it uncomfortable. Rinse it out and and try to GENTLY curl...

Re: No Sounds At All

3 of mine, i adopted from a friend who said they Chirped ALL THE TIME. She even sent me recordings of them, but as soon as i added them to my tank, they never made a peep. I've never heard a crab chirp in real life.

Re: Second chances all around

looks alright but theres a few things i would change. 1. ditch the colored sand, its likely "hermit crab sand" which is just pure calcium carbonate which will harden into a solid if it gets wet, and it can trap crabs below. You can use regular play sand from places like home depot or lower, its a lo...
