Re: Glass Shell

Plus, they often retract into their shells to hide, so if they retract and still feel like they can be seen they may not be too happy.

Same. I know location data is available in their profiles if they choose to share it, but I still feel like a creep looking at it.

Re: Hermits eating dog food?

I also agree with curlysister, I did some research not too long ago and it turns out they aren’t required to list ethoxyquin in the ingredients of the dog food if the ethoxyquin is in a component already. I’m just pulling this off the top of my head, but I believe that current U.S. regulations allo...

Re: How can I tell my females have eggs?

Sometimes you may notice guarding behavior, where a male follows a female around to keep other males away and entice her to mate.

Re: chicken or beef broth?

Broth should be fine if it’s just meat/bones/organs and water. Beef and chicken are perfectly safe.

Cornstarch should be fine. I see no reason why it wouldn’t be.

Where did you get these numbers from? Prime stops binding to ammonia after forty-eight hours, but other compounds should be just fine.

Re: Mystery Butterfly?

It’s not an anise swallowtail, is it? I’ve seen similar colourations online.

Have you tried a reverse image search?

Re: Help Cuddles had eggs in sand

When my eggs were smeared last year, I tried hatching them myself. Out of over a hundred eggs, only three were still alive, and they died within hours. You can give it a shot, but as soon as they’re dropped outside water their chances to survive plummet to zero real fast (assuming the eggs are any g...

Re: Cuttlebone question

I also leave mine on or in the substrate. There’s not much in there for it to mold.

Re: condensation

A bit of condensation won’t hurt them. In a humid environment it’s bound to happen from time to time.

Re: From fair crab to hermit habitat

They’ll get their food and water when they need it. Are you sure they aren’t just eating or drinking when you’re not watching, such as late at night?

Re: Prime and Instant Ocean ratios?

People on another place I visit once in awhile treat their actual water dishes, not their stored water bc prime wears off after 48 hours. So if you treat a 16oz bottle just use 1 drop. You can’t really overdose on prime but don’t go crazy with it either. Prime stops bonding to ammonia after forty-e...
