Re: Condensation

I leave it unless i want a really good picture. It helps keep the humidity up as it evaporates.

Re: Our crabs don't seem very happy in their crabitat

I noticed you mentioned you have a heater on the bottom. You should move it to the back or side even if its called an "under tank heater" thats for reptiles for little to no substrate. Since hermit crabs have so much, it can become a fire hazard from the reflected heat and possibly cook hermit crabs...

Re: How much to feed?

I just feed more than they could eat in a day. I have 8 crabs right now and i usually give them i guess 2-3 tablespoons, but they don't eat most of it. It would probably last them a week if i didn't take it out. Just experiment and adjust to get it right, and remember too much is always better than ...

Re: Determination

Maybe he sees something intriguing in that direction, he could sense darkness or smell something yummy over there. I'm curious if any of them follow each other like ants.

Re: any more pics

I have one in a shell that i don't even know what its called, but its not a turbo which is strange enough for me. Especially, since this guy has worn turbos for the past 2 years before I bought that shell on a whim. I wish i could send pics but, i'm away at college now. ill ask my dad for pics tonig...

Re: Crab On the Run!

I've had one crab since he was a small in my first 10 gal. I came home one day from school and he was sitting on top of the tank as if to greet me "Hi! welcome back from school!" :crabbigsmile: After that i started duck taping the lid shut. A few months later i got my 45 gallon and moved him in and ...

Re: ~*Snuggling Straws*~

Cool tank! its so cute to see them snuggled. btw i have that same rabbit hide thing in my tank, but i cut off the wooden hearts and stars because i'm pretty sure their made of pine. I'm not positive, but its better safe than sorry.

Re: How long are crabs safe out of habitat?

I'll take mine outside with me on really hot and humid days, but i also keep them in a hamster ball that i've misted just in case my outside humidity gauge is off(i never learned how to calibrate it) they will run around on my driveway for a bit. I make sure there aren't any ants or anything that ca...

Re: Tips for Instant Ocean storage?

I just keep mine in the box. Sometimes it gets a little hard, but i just chop it up with a plastic spoon before adding it to the water.

Re: need tank opinions

I would go for the 20 long personally.

I've had a crab change shells 9 times in the first day i got him, and that was just while i was watching him. I think he jumped at the chance everytime he saw a shell and at that point i probably had 70 shells in my tank.
