Re: Awake during daytime?

Ok thank you! I think I’m just over-analyzing because I’m still worried about why my other 2 crabs died. I fear I’m missing something, but when we went through all my parameters etc on the emergency template it all looked good. The only thing we found was to offer meat / egg more often. I have and t...

Awake during daytime?

I’ve lost 2 crabs over the last few months, both got very lethargic and sick before dying. In the emergency forum I was told all my parameters looked good. I have 1 medium crab molting, and another medium crab who usually sleeps all day in the shell pit and then charged around making a mess of stuff...

Death smell

Can the death smell say in over only 1 day? SeeWee was weak, but alive yesterday morning. He didn’t smell. Last night when I checked on him he was still and had a very strong fishy smell (death smell)? He’s been sick for a while, I’m sad but it doesn’t surprise me, I just want to make sure he’s dead...

Re: Naked crab

Sad update, I’m pretty sure SeeWee died today :( He’s was getting worse again, still in iso, and was weak but alive this morning. Tonight no movement, limp legs, and a distinct fairly strong fishy smell coming from him / his shell. Can smell set in this quickly? I feel so bad, I tried everything I c...

Re: Naked crab

Update if anyone’s interested. He was back in the big tank and ding a bit better but after a second bout if nakedness he’s back in iso. He’s staying in a shell, but I’m constantly finding him on his back while mostly tucked into the shell. When I flip him over in my hand he comes out more so I can s...

Re: Naked crab

So this little guy is staying in his shell now but still seems weak. I’m offering foods off the healing food list - cuttlebone, crushed oyster shell, bee pollen, worm castings, honey, crushed lobster & crab shell. I’m also offering millet & green sand. He doesn’t seem much interested in food. I’m de...

Re: Adopted 2 Crabbies that weren't in best condition; not moving or eating much!

Great job on Stardust! I wouldn’t give up hope on Lyra just yet, she could’ve gone down to destress, come up at night when you didn’t see, then went back down to molt.

Re: Naked crab

I think it’s camera angle, but some are a bit big for him. He shifted back into a green turbo, which is what he was originally in. He’s spent the day hiding in his shell and staring into space sitting there. I’ll put him back into iso b Food i’m offering right now is all healing foods - ground crab ...

Naked crab

Hi I have another post going but it’s gotten really long and it seemed like my crabbie Seewee was doing better I things took a bad turn today. Last night I lit him back in the big tank. This morning he was naked so I helped him respell and put him back in iso for an hour. He switched shells again an...

Re: Sick crab

Oof, woke to Seewee naked walking around this morning! Thanks to you guys I knew just what to do and was able to gently rinse him and respell him. He didn’t want to go back in his old shell, or any fir that matter really. So I finally put him in a shell that’s maybe a bit big for him, but I was able...

Re: Sick crab

Yeah, it’s hard to know what’s right to do. My main hesitation is that he’s a gait but smaller than my other 2 crabs and one of them has been VERY active lately. I caught my big guy trying to sneak out the other morning and again this morning [emoji15][emoji23] I’ll try putting him back in tonight a...
