Re: Test Run: Garlic?

As much as I love garlic, I don't think I could handle my reptile room smelling like it :) It would be interesting to know if the crabs enjoyed it. Minced garlic is a little stronger smelling than powdered or fresh.

Re: Bridge made of Sticks

yeah i’m a little sad... i thought it looked good but it’s unsafe. but safety comes before looks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk You could probably make something like that if your yard isn't sprayed with pesticides or fertilizers. Check to make sure your city/county doesn't spray for mosquitoes...

Re: What if molting hermits see light

I cover spots on my tanks when windows show.

Edit: I use a piece of cardboard box and tape it on

Re: looking for new crabitat

You could always purchase a used larger aquarium on Craigslist, OfferUp, Letgo, Facebook Marketplace, etc (if that is an option). If that isn't an option, you just kind of have to get creative. Or, you could opt to go for the 20 gallon tall. One more option would be to add a topper. :)

Re: Bridge made of Sticks

The wood bridge you have is a Willow bridge. It isn't recommended to use Willow with hermit crabs. Petsmart sells Willow wooden things for rodents. Here is the HCA link on Willow: viewtopic.php?t=104911

Re: HERMIES HAVE NOT MOLTED!!!

I personally recommend that your temperature and humidity are a minimum of 80. I know your case isn't an emergency, but if you would like for us to check out your tank specs, please fill out the following: http://hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=46102 Edit: Once you have filled i...

Re: My first bacteria bloom

Look on OfferUp and LetGo - they will tell you how long ads are up. That is how I scored my 150 for cheap. The tank had been for sale for awhile. I told them I would come get it that day if they would let me have it for cheaper. :)

Re: Injured Leg from Fall

Hi there :) I second all of the recommendations that Curlysister mentioned. You also want to make sure that your substrate is mixed with dechlorinated marine saltwater or dechlorinated freshwater to make it sandcastle consistency. I also wanted to mention that a vast majority of products marketed fo...

Thanks! I washed the net/house in the laundry at the end of the season last year. Do you think I should give it a soak in bleach too before I use it this year? [emoji7]

If you did the bleach wash last year it will be fine.

Re: My first bacteria bloom

I love you GB! I've never been an energy gal. My sister had lupus. I get checked every now and then. It's like letting someone else fill the dishwasher. It has to be done right. Lol Yes!

Re: New here! Hygrometer calibration question

I've been fortunate enough to have accurate ones. I use the Accurite ones. I don't use storage containers. I do a ziplock bag to check mine. Accurite does have several different kinds - I go for the cheap one. They used to be $8 - Now they are $11 https://smile.amazon.com/AcuRite-00325-Comfort-Monit...

Re: Abit too big for him, but still a super pretty and perfect growth shell!

I also have a few, but nobody ever chooses to wear them. We had one member that had a strawberry crab wear it - and boy was that GORGEOUS!
