Re: Humidity Issues, broken gauge?

What do you have over the mesh top? It needs to be wrapped in plastic wrap or covered with damp towel, with just a corner open for air.

Re: Water dish mystery!

Funny you posted this! I recently had the same issue in my deep fw pool! I kept filling it...And filling it...And filling it! But not the sw. I took it out (it is a kritter keeper, so not easy to do!) And put a brand new one in...And same thing happened! This is my thoughts: dechlorinated water evap...

Re: How is my bubbler?

Mine love strong bubbles. My pump is adjustable and I cranked it up last night, and they have all been in it, using it like a Jacuzzi!

Re: I don't understand.

A quarter inch gap around the edges equals a half inch of crab escape space! I can see it happening, amazing as it is! A suggestion for rescuing her when she is ready, and I don't know if it will work but may be worth a try: straighten a coat hanger and put a small hook on one end. Slide it down alo...

Re: How long for gel limbs to form?

Thank you! I think I can see them now, and it has been a week. She stopped eating and drinking but can't dig so I made her a cave and covered her up! Here is hoping she molts!

Re: Setting up a New crabitat

For second level, I silicone L-shaped plastic corner guards to the glass, with holes punched in so I can moved stuff around at will. You have to do it at least a week before the crabs go in. I got so frustrated with suction cups! In my pools, I have a large aquarium rock in one end, a plant and a pl...

Re: New hermit crab seems to be dying

Your conditions sounds good. It is most likely pps and there isn't a whole lot you can do. Once they start dropping limbs, they are pretty much done. I have tried both leaving them alone and trying to nurse them through but they never make it. I am sorry you have to go through this, but if you are i...

Re: Crab found under food bowl(uncovered hole)

Put the food bowl back over him. He is either digging down to molt but more likely just chilling out. All but 3 of my crabs dig down every day to sleep, then come up at night. When they dig to sleep, it is shallow. When they molt, they are just GONE!

Re: Put a space heater in front of the tank...see what happe

It is in front of the dresser that the tank is on, set at half strength. I should have said that!

I was surprised that they were eating down there! No wonder my food lasts so long!

Put a space heater in front of the tank...see what happens!

I put a large space heater in front of the tank. I usually move it around the room a bit but decided to keep it in front for extra heat for my inured one who is an iso kritter keeper inside the main tank. I saw movement this morning down below, and found 3 crabs kicking back underground, right by th...

Excellent quality, price and packaging, and recieved it in one day! And my big Snoopy E had to be the first in! http://i624.photobucket.com/albums/tt321/horse_lady...

Cave making observation last night!

My littlest E has been going down lately, then coming back up, etc. Last night, while checking on my attacked molter (who was eating moss by rubbing it between his broken outside leg and his front leg, then eating it!), I heard scratching on glass below ground. I have a finished molter just hanging ...
