Re: Wanting to expand my 20 gallon long tank

Since I've been crabbing I've seen it like once a month. Maybe call your local Petco and see when the last one was and if they can tell you when the next one is.

Re: Wanting to expand my 20 gallon long tank

What you need to do is watch out for the $1.00 pet gallon sale at Petco and maybe buy a taller tank. I was in the same situation as you a few months back but ran across this display model price to clear at PetSmart that is 65g tall and now I have 3 levels. It was a huge ordeal but so glad I did it. ...

Re: I feel bad

Welcome to the I hate the pet store advice club! It is awful what these pet stores do, sell and tell people. If it wasn't for this forum mine would have had the same outcome. If he's losing limbs I'm sorry to say he's probably not going to make it. The best thing for him now is to leave him be. The ...

Re: Did Not Resurface..?

It's okay some crabs will bury to de stress for a few days up to a few weeks. And some crabs will stay active for the first week and then go and de stress. As long as you are not smelling that "death" smell then he's doing fine. Maybe write down the day he went down so you will know exactly how many...

Re: Ideas for 75G

I have not. I've got a 65 gallon with 13 crabs with 8 hidey huts and not a lot of room to grow more. Usually what happens is I grow the chia and they will mow it down within about 3 weeks so then I get in and churn it up pull out the top layer, add more EE if I need to, clean the shells & water dish...

Re: First time crab owner

Hi and welcome! It is normal for him to be down that long. Some crabs will de stress for a couple of weeks before they molt. He might also be coming up at night while you are asleep and going back down before you wake up. Depending on the size of the crab he could molt for a few months. The best thi...

Re: HERMIT CRAB EATING IT'S OWN SHELL

That is normal. They are known to eat the shell to make more room. Nothing to worry about. Do you have more shells for him to change into?
