Re: 5 Months

Update: After 8 months of waiting and the opportunity to finally churn the sub with both of my crabs up from their recent molts, I dug down. Unfortunately Mona passed. I found her shell at the bottom of the tank buried and completely encased in sand along with a few ashy hollow leg segments. I'm not...

Re: Venus in the garden

I have to say, Venus intrigues me the most. Such a stunning crab!

Re: 5 Months

Hi, thanks for the reply! I am very positive that she hasn't been coming up at all. I monitor my other two misfits very closely and all activity is from them. (they are such creatures of habit, I find them doing routine tunnel maintenance every morning, LOL!) Plus, Mona is significantly larger than...

Re: Length of Time for Molting???

Does anyone know what's the longest amount of time crabs molt? 2 of my Hermit Crabs have been underground since October. Yes, October. I'm worried they might be dead. I won't dig them up, just in case. The tank doesn't smell like anything's dead. They're both 4 years old. They have never molted for...

Re: when to start searching

I'm honestly in the same position. I have one crab that has now been under for 6 months, and I'm positive that there hasn't been any sneaking up to the surface and that she's actually molting. My heart says "don't dig!" but my brain says "there's no chance :( "

Re: Deeper bowls, golden vine, second level & more

That vine is huge!!! And I second the moss pit- once you make it, your crabs will probably be stuck to it like glue. Mine are always in and out of their moss pit (the little suckers always make such a mess..) You could also weave some leafy vines or plants within the holes of the second level or aro...

Re: Pools

My pools aren't the deepest, but I think they're deep enough, though. Sheldon is molting, so I don't know for sure, but I'm pretty sure he could submerge in them, or very close to it. The only problem is Peanut. He's little and the pools are too deep for him. I have the bottom lined with rocks, but...

Re: Shell searching.....

I had a lot of success with the variety of turbos (that are smaller in size) from Naples as well. I got my larger turbos from Etsy. You can also get lucky with some shells sold in craft stores. Usually they're sold in bunches containing decorative shells with a few acceptable turbos. Sent from my iP...

Re: Fresh Market + more questions

Regarding your first question- have you heard of Lucky's Market? There's a Fresh Market close to where I live, but I've never been. I have been to Lucky's though, I go there all the time. While their bulk selection isn't extensive like Whole Foods, I like it, and so do the crabs. They have organic ...

5 Months

Hello everyone! :D I have a molter down right now- Mona. She's been under the sub since 9/16/17. So...as of today, she's been down for five months!! She's medium-ish in size, maybe a little larger than a golf ball. I'm starting to get worried since we're on month 5 now, and the other crabs have been...
