Laying down

Is it normal for a crab to lay on it's side? Or is this guy in trouble? He's not been as active lately (think week), moving only a couple inches a day. He's been in the food bowl for like 2 days so I haven't changed the food to avoid bothering him https://image.ibb.co/dcfBPv/20170810_191832.jpg Also...

Re: Crab Seriously Smelly - But Still Alive

Is it possible that he got rotten food stuck in his shell somehow?

sand sinking, losing an inch

hi, so I'm new to crabbing and when I set up the substrate which is maybe 50% playsand and 50% coco fiber and made it sandcastle, it was about 5-5.5 inches. a month later, it looks like it's shrunk down by 1/2 to 3/4 inch. is this from water loss? should I spray it down? I hadn't been doing that bec...

Re: Difficulty Maintaining Heat/Humidity?

@Undercrablife, does spraying the moss with saltwater kill it?

Is there something specifically to take out the ammonia that...

Re: Crab burried since we got them

similar thing with mine. I got one a couple of weeks ago from the pet store and for 3-4 days it seemed not to move from a spot where he dug himself and all I could see was the shell. When he is not moving, I find it helps to smooth out the sand or substrate between him and the food so I can tell if ...
