Re: Ecuadorian Carotenes

I can't speak to non-Coenobita species, but I've combed through a lot of the scientific literature specific to Coenobita and havent run across any studies pertaining to carotene (or indeed colouration of exo at all) for compressus or perlatus. If I had to guess, I'd bet this was extrapolated from so...

Re: New tank and needs to be cleaned

I used the half lemon on the calcium scale in my 90 & was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked (though the glass wasn't at all pitted, so I can't say if it would do the trick in that instance.)

Re: Minnows

Some petstores/fish pet stores have a fridge with frozen goodies. I've often seen frozen packs of little minnow-y type fish. (You can also get frozen bloodworms, mysis shrimp, daphnia... lots of crab friendly foods.) Just check the ingredients list, as always when buying fish food for any invertebra...

Re: Airtight

I so relate. Organizing crab food can feel like such a chore sometimes. I have little sealed containers (glass flip top jars or smaller plastic tubes for storing craft stuff, like beads and such, for things I have in very small volumes) on a hanging spice rack at this point. But no system is perfect...

Re: Crabitote

Hi :) I am starting up my very own tote! I want to rescue hermit crabs from my store, and track down some Ecuadorians. I am going to Home Depot in a few days, so I can get sand, and possibly look for a container, otherwise I want a 30 - 40 gallon clear tote that is higher. I only want really high t...

Re: Molting and Other Questions

Just seconding wode... and adding that it's totally worth the wait when they do finally come up! :D As for mixing in the old sub in the new tank, totally - go for it. Unless it's developed stinky patches it should still be useable. (And I don't mean just earthy smelling, I mean eggy, foul smelling d...

Re: exciting news!

I'm just waiting for them to molt now. I am assuming they haven't yet because i haven't had any old skin to clean out, and when they dig into the sand they only stay under for 5 days at most. Can they molt that fast? They will actually eat their shed exoskeleton after a moult, so you won't need to ...

Re: Hermit Crab Shells

And in case you hadn't seen it yet, I'll just add the link to the preffered shell page - it covers PP shell preferences & has pictures & names of shells to make finding them easier. :)

Re: Do I need to be worried?

I'd add a protein too, if there isn't any. Something nice & fatty (for example, something like salmon or herring) if you have it - building back up energy reserves after a moult takes a variety of foods. Insects (dead of course) are a good addition too.

Re: Timers & Nightlights

I just bought the cheapest timer I could find at the hardware store (usually in the lighting section).

If you want one with multiple outlets (for multiple plugs) its probably cheaper to get one timer with two outlets vrs. two timers - but price check.
