Adding Substrate with a Surface Molter?

Can this be safely done? After putting Ann through the stress of molting just after moving (literally the day after), i don't want to accidentally kill her adding more sub. When i was cleaning out the tank, it turns out i didn't wring out the sub enough, and it smelled horrible for the bottom 4-5". ...

Re: adding more substrate w/ molting crab

Does this change at all if a crab is surface molting? I just moved, and it turned out the bottom half of my old sub was going bad. However, before i could get more new sub, she she'd her exo. Can i add sub around the bottle until she's surface ready, or just wait to add any at all?

Re: Is my crab dying?

Thank you, the trick is just making sure to have a bowl that the pitch of the walls is steep enough to stop anyone from leaving. If i put a 1 gallon tank inside the full setup for holding, and start catching crabs tonight or tomorrow night, would that cause excess emotional trauma and fighting? That...

Re: Is my crab dying?

I can potentially keep the temp right, but i don't have a closed tank that i can keep the humidity up. How big does the bowl have to be? I have cereal bowls that are 6 inches across and 2 inches deep or so with a45 degree incline, or bowls that are almost vertical on the side, among other sizes

Is my crab dying?

I have a straw that's being rather sluggish it seems. Any time i check out the tat, she's in the salt water dish. I took her out of the water to change it, and she barely moved more than turning a bit. This morning i put her right next to the coconut oil so she can eat, but she just sat there. I hav...

How sensitive are crabs to noise?

Specifically, a piano. I'm moving soon, and already am planning out my room. The biggest trick is that one wall has 2 vents and 4 of my crabs are straws, so i can't put them on that wall. Moving counter clockwise, it's a wall up against the exterior. Moving to the next wall is where the crabs may go...

Sexing Straws

Does anyone have a good picture of the gonopores on straws? I tried looking at one that was climbing that i could see the underside, but from what i saw, the base of the third legs is smaller than on pps, so i couldn't really tell their sexes

Re: Shell fight or just swapping shells?

That's what perplexes me: all the available shells are various kinds of turbo, other than the magpies two are wearing and the unknown kind the small came in Edit: it appears Courage (new guy) went shell shopping and found something. Bro moved into his shell, but may be moving back. At least now i ca...
