just checking

My current hermit crab food I am using came from the Hermit Crab Patch. It came with a little sample of "worm castings." Has anyone used this or knows is it is safe? It says it is 100% worm castings.

Re: Saw this moss pit at Petsmart in Woodbury, MN

I've never been to a Petsmart that didn't use a plastic fish bowl for a moss pit. I wanted to do that but I cant find a plastic fish bowl, only glass.

Re: Hello! New (for the second time) crabber!

Yay! :) Welcome to the Hermit Crab Association, let us know if you need help with anything. Glad you were wise and gave your remaining crabs to your teacher, clearly you were smart enough to know they could be better off, you have good judgment :wink:

Re: Should I dig for the inevitable?

Leave them be. :) I know it's hard! But small crabs do this thing where they sneak up in the middle of the night for a few days to reload on food and water, and then bury again for weeks on end. Firefly was a micro when I got him, and during the first year I saw him all of four times, the following...

so confused!

Hey, Sorry if this is in the wrong place. So this morning I woke up and checked on my crabs as usual, but I realized the crab under the log wasn't Big bill like it usually is, it was Snap! Snap has been buried for a little over a month now. I was so excited! But I noticed he was digging a lot, like ...

Crabbers unite!!!
Big bill is a small crab, and little bill is a teeny I believe.

Right after I posted this they buried about an inch and a half away from each other, they will probably be up tomorrow morning, I'll keep an eye on them.

tension? fighting? need help ASAP

Hey, So my two hermit crabs big bill and little bill are best friends, or were. This morning I saw little bill push big bill over, and big bill's shell is heavy and it was hard to get up. Then Big Bill was on top of Little Bill, and I got worried. I picked up their log hide causing big bill to fall ...

Re: Hi I am a new crab owner

Hello!

I haven't read your emergency post, but I hope all goes well. I have had hermit crabs for about 4 months and I am still constantly worried.

I hope you find this site helpful and have a long and happy journey with your hermit crabs :)

Welcome to the HCA! :crabbigsmile:
