Re: My CL post worked!!

[emoji85] my CL post may be working a little too well. Got a text today from some guy wanting to rehome 6 crabs. I think 10 PPs in a 40 gallon should be ok, right? If not I can setup my empty 20 gallon but I'd prefer not to have 2 if I can avoid it. Zoo mom of 3 cats, a dog, a fish and 4 crabs (Ball...

Re: Moving with crabs

I'm going to be moving in about 2 months. I've got a 40gallon newly established and expect I'll have at least a few down when the time comes. My move is only about 2 hours and I'll be driving my own car. The tank will fit in the back seat and I'm wondering if anyone has just moved the whole tank. My...

[emoji115] Very true. Right now I'm having good luck with the crap shoot shopping but I can see how that won't last for long [emoji85]

Re: Cheap Shell find at Michaels

But a $20-$30 investment at your local craft stores should net a decent amount of useable shells, assuming your crabs aren't really big. Online has a better selection but seem more expensive.

Re: Cheap Shell find at Michaels

I got that same bag a couple of weeks ago and also got quite a few good shells for the price [emoji1] I've seen a few posts about pulverizing unwearable shells to make a calcium powder to sprinkle on their food. Suggestions have been to clean then first (salt water boil) and then crush. Zoo mom of 3...

Thanks [emoji5]️ I'm really enjoying them being more active and seeming more comfortable since I found HCA and got a better setup.

[emoji29] this new guy is a bit more destructive than I'm used to lol he's explored every nook and cranny of the tank, pulled down the temp and humidity gauges several times, upended the 2nd level moss pits (he digs under and walks along the bottom of the shower caddies whilst flinging moss out as h...

Tall tank layer ideas!

If you've got time, dig randomly through some of the forums on here...there are TONS of cool (and cheap!) things people have done to maximize space in their tanks [emoji1] I spent like 3 hours one morning bopping around and came out with my head spinning.
