Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Thanks so much, everyone! It's really hard keeping up the daily news, but today, Day 24, I have a MEGALOPA!! So adorable. All gangly legs and claws--doesn't know whether to walk or swim. I started crying and shaking when I saw him, hardly dared to believe it. I have a video up on YouTube, but my hom...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Thank you, GB! I'm riddled with doubts today, but such is the hermit crab roller coaster. Ha!

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pitzYWf8PxM Day Twenty-one. Three weeks. If nothing else, I’ve done that. Today was deep-clean day and I had a semi-emergency. Took almost five hours to complete because I realized (after completely wiping clean and drying it) that the left kreisel had sprung a leak....

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Thank you, @naalide! Yes, of course it's fine to link to your German forum. I've been poring over the info on Curlz website and YouTube, so it goes both ways. :D I'm at Day Seventeen now. The larvae seem fine. Minimal losses still. More sheds today but just late bloomers to Stage Four, I think. I'm ...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Today is Day Seven. They are one week old. I'm barely keeping up with everything else in my life, but the larval hermits seem to be doing well. I haven't had time to do daily updates in here(sorry!), but I have been doing my best to keep info going up on my website, at least. If you want to catch up...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Day Two: The double kreisel is working well. The hardest part about it is going to be keeping it clean. I fed three times today, small amounts, but they could (and should) have been smaller amounts even. Overfeeding is a problem I have to keep in check. Even if it seems like super small amounts, th...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

And this is a somewhat blurry slo-mo, but if you are patient, you can see a couple of zoea swim by, furiously using their legs and swimmerets, which surprised me. I didn't think they were active swimmers until later stages, but this is Day One. :)

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Not out of season for Caribbean crabs. Mine have been pretty consistent mating on or around the July /August full moon. Here they are "migrating" yesterday. All is quiet in the tat today.

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Not sure if I should start a new thread or not, but as of today I'm waiting on four females with eggs to drop any time now and I plan to give rearing them another go. I've been gearing up for this ever since last summer's failed attempt--I've been selling crab dishes and dehydrated foods to help fun...
