Re: Dug up Molters

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...

Re: Dug up Molters

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 (...

Re: Dug up Molters

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...

Re: General update on me and my crabs

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...

Dug up Molters

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...

Re: dropped limbs... What do i do?

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.

Re: beachcombing

Yes beach combing is bad especially because people already take shells off the beach and clean them to sell so they are already scarce.

Re: Foods Collected Outside - Safe/Preparation?

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.

Re: General crabitat help needed

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, ...

Yup he should be fine just feed some protein and extra calcium in case he goes for a back to back molt.

Re: Glass Sand

I'd go with the regular play sand. I know glass is made from sand but i think the crabs would be accustomed to something more natural.

Re: Scratched Exo after a molt?

He probably just hurt himself underground. The molting cave could have collapsed before he hardened completely.
