Re: About my Crabitat

Here are some pictures from the new crabitat! It's a 20gal, with Quikrete play sand as substrate, and two humidity houses with cocofiber. :) The overhead view: https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t34.0-0/p280x280/26943588_10215333629514384_2016609055_n.jpg?oh=b08111f82ca0c70dde34e71ad7bede23&oe=5...

Re: Questions About Feeding

Okay, thank you for all the help! :D Yes, I'm definitely looking at getting some cuttlebone the next time I go to the petstore - definitely within the next few weeks. I was definitely considering the Hermit Crab Patch. The prices look good, but my mother and I are concerned about the shipping costs....

Share some pictures!

I'd love to see everyone's crabbies! :D Here are some pictures of mine. Peanut is the smaller one, and Sheldon is in the blue shell. (Not anymore!) Peanut is camera shy, so only one of him for now. https://i.imgur.com/PrTpo3B.jpg https://i.imgur.com/p91ygdz.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ThKvrNx.jpg https:...

Re: Questions About Feeding

Yes, I read that honey should be given sparingly, so I won't feed it to them as often. :) We never use pesticides on or around our trees, so the leaves and acorns should all be safe.

Re: What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

My crabs seem to be very picky - they're all about the sweets. Freeze-dried shrimp, carrots, lettuce, apples and bananas have all been ignored, from what I can tell. Blueberries, oatmeal and cranberries have had a little more success. But honey is what they really like. I'm not sure what to give the...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

My Sheldon just changed out of his painted shell - our first shell change! :D We were so happy to see him ditch that shell. His new shell seems quite large for him, but maybe I'm just used to seeing his smaller one. https://i.imgur.com/RTvAbtn.jpg Hopefully that image works. :) If it does, that's hi...

Re: About my Crabitat

Also, I'm looking into getting them some deeper water dishes. I have some plastic containers, one of which is big enough for my larger crab to get in and move around a bit, but not too much. Would it be too small? It's wide enough to fit a tennis ball in, I think. The second water dish is much large...

Questions About Feeding

I've been feeding my two PPs, Sheldon and Peanut, FMR Hermit Crab food, which I desperately want to change. I'm in the market for a new, better commercial food, one with no chemicals or preservatives. I'd like to feed them more (safe) human food than commercial food, but I'd like to have a pre-made ...

About my Crabitat

Hello! I'm a new member here and looking for some advice/help with my crabitat. :) I'm the happy owner of two Purple Pinchers (I believe), and I like to think they're happy too. I will be upgrading them to a 20gal tank within the next week or so, so the information below is what their current living...
