Re: Ready to go back into gen pop.

This is the crab that I posted about last week with the shallow, interrupted molt. He was out and about in the ISO this evening so he got a bath and back into the general population he went! http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/07/28/39702e58d5ab1ba32b405910e6b17d6e.jpg http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/...

Re: My CL post worked!!

Doesn't he? [emoji7] he's been shell shopping for like 30 minutes now...literally going one shell to the next as he can reach one from on top of the last lol he's switched to a magpie and back but seems to be paying the magpies the most attention so far. http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/07/29/b59a...

Re: HCP isn't as wonderful as everyone thinks

The green turbo family is a mess - there are four species that are sold under that name and the sellers all swap the latin names around between them. Only way to know what you're getting is to see the particular shell you're getting. Brunneus are supposed to be the ones with the severely defined sp...

Boxes to hide and seek in might prove difficult to seek back out an exit lol The freak out from being lost omg! The lip guides aren't a bad idea. And climbing is the best exercise.

Re: Humidity Concerns!

Your humidity can be up to 99% and not harm the crabs. Be sure to calibrate the gauge as well. I will link that info as well. http://www.hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=92540 Sent from my LG-D850 using Tapatalk It just might aid in mold growth since crabs are notorious for burying n...

Re: HCP isn't as wonderful as everyone thinks

Not that I didn't see it coming, but I am surprised about the species being affected. Many of the shells that our hermits like are the same species that are being farmed for humans to eat. The companies seem to be choosing to harvest sooner at a smaller size these days. Or they're not harvesting th...

Re: Complete newbie, KIND OF FREAKING OUT

http://shadlescrabs.tumblr.com/ that's where my photos are! I couldn't get them to post here Offer them natural unpainted shells once you figure out their sizes and places to buy them. Take the painted shells out of the crabitat the moment they change out of it on their own. Same with painted decor...

Re: HCP isn't as wonderful as everyone thinks

I've never had any issues with them either, fortunately. I feed a lot of their foods plus their mineral supplement, and place orders fairly regularly. I always joke that if I stop feeding their foods, my crabs will riot. The few times I've contacted them they've replied quickly and are super helpfu...

Re: HCP isn't as wonderful as everyone thinks

Honestly surprised at how low their stock of shells are every time I check. Wish I could get away with the worm castings w/out insane postage because I don't/can't spend $75+ to make shipping worth it.

Re: Desert Crabby Mixes N More Review

Just yesterday I received my order of hibiscus flowers, seaweed and moss. I got some neato freebies, also. Even after filling the bowl I caught Matty and Baby running to the new moss pit. Earlier, at about 1am, there was Toby, Baby, Sid and maybe a small one or two stuffed and stuffing their faces i...
