Owe okay! Sorry about that Yep I waited as long as I could for most of them to come up but the digging was inevitable. I have good news and bad, the good is that my wonky PP is alive and ate most of her exo. The bad news is she's completely naked, the 2 E's that were in the tote with her are no whe...
If you haven't, please make sure to keep the ones you dug up separate from other crabs until you know for sure they are active and eating and okay. They can molt or remolt even if they seem okay at this moment, and if they are weak they are easy prey for the others. I have had crabs that I dug up (...
Lol that's a great pic Calla. Out of the 7 I dug up those were the only two in mid molt. The other 5 look like they just finished or were just about to, one looked pretty ashy. I think I had a loss, found parts but no shell. I will have to do a recount when I get to the new location and get everyone...
So sorry about your crabbie. I would leave her ISO'd with her remaining exo until she's up and about acting normally. Perhaps we should move this last posting over to the Molting section where it would get more notice from crabbers with more advice? Yep I was going to start another thread there, bu...
So I started digging today and found my first mid molt crab. :/ No fish smell but absolutely no movement at all and legs are a bit wonky, probably my fault with all the digging I did. Also doesn't look like any exo was eaten yet. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/01/11/62c9d1c692d8944b63eaa8e0961...

Get him in an ISO with ideal conditions and feed plenty of protein, calcium, and honey. That will give him the nutrients needed to prepare for a molt.

The meat and exoskeleton are safe after you boil them. The snails and grass are more likely to contain pollutants because snails are grazers and consume everything in their path. If you find a lot around your house and you don't use any pesticides they might be safe.

A small amount of calci sand is fine. But to use it as a primary substrate is what's really harmful. I have some in a dish and the crabs sit in it and eat it for hours. They also manage to kick it out and empty the whole dish too sometimes. I don't worry about it, there's 10in of regular play sand, ...

I've been in Barbados for the past 2 weeks, I leave tomorrow can't wait to see what my tank looks like. I hope I don't have any losses :/ I had the lamp and humidifier on a timer and filled their leaf and flower pits up and planted some beans and chia seeds. Also filled their food dish to the brim w...
