New hermit crab seems to be dying

Hi! So, I got 4 PP:s three days ago. 3 small and one tiny. 2 of them seems to be doing very well, and two of them not so... I'm 98% sure the tiny one died the night we got them, but I'm not taking it out until I smell anything. The other one seemed quite healthy first, it walked around a bit and dec...

Re: My first hermit crabs have finally arrived!

I bought them on a reptile fair from a company from Czech. The pet stores here only have straws, indos and ruggies right now :/

Re: My first hermit crabs have finally arrived!

Actually, I don't think there's much more that I can do than wait and see, as it's most likely PPS. But I'll be sure to do that tomorrow anyways, thank you :)

Re: My first hermit crabs have finally arrived!

Well, now it seems like Jeff are dying too. He's limp and does'nt move much at all, and has not eaten anything. Poor guys :( It's so frustrating that I can't do anything for them. And on top of that, I won't be able to get more PP:s if they don't make it, as they are not sold in the pet shops here. ...

Re: My first hermit crabs have finally arrived!

Obisidan actually changed shell from a nice fitting green turbo into one of these shells... I was not sure they would be interested in them at all, but obviously they are :lol: They are D-shaped and apparently native to england and scandinavia. Marine hermit crabs here actually like to use them as s...

Re: My first hermit crabs have finally arrived!

Thanks guys :) I'm not sure he's moved tonight.. As I said I put some food in front of him, it's eaten but perl is lying on it's side (in the same place he was yesterday). I have suspicions that obsidian, who's been very active since we let them in the terrarium, has pushed himself into perls cocohi...

Re: My first hermit crabs have finally arrived!

Yeah, I've left them alone to do their stuff. I also put some pb and honey in front of the little one, if it's hard for her/him to get to the food. I really hope it will be alright, everyone except that one has moved around in the tank.

My first hermit crabs have finally arrived!

Today I got four cute PPs, and are already in love with them! I've decided to name my hermit crabs Obsidian and Perl, and my boyfriend names his Henke and Jeff. I know Henke is a female, she was very brave and energetic, but have'nt been able to check the rest of them. All seem to be well, though th...

Re: Second level ideas..

The risk with using wood in the tank is that you may get mold on it. You should be able to use it if you use some varnish on it, but make sure that it's safe for terrariums! And of course, I think the crabs may pick on it, so you may also need to repaint it regularly. I've done a second level with s...

Re: Meet Harold - my new little man

Such a cute crab! And awfully cute name too!

It's great that the pet stores are interested in their crabs health, I hope their conditions will improve :)

Re: Setting up a corner tank

So, the last couple of days I've been busy putting in all the substrate (that was some tough work!) and started decorating. I will probably rearrange quite a lot before I put the hermits in lol... The UTH I bought was kind of unneccesary, it's freaking hot in there! 86F under the lights, 83F by the ...
