Re: Lost power

I forgot I made this post lol. I think most of America would be lost if we switched to Celsius, I know I would be [emoji854] I thought about a generator, but that’s so much money. I’ve lived in the same house for all 21 years of my life and that was the first time we’ve ever lost power. It wasn’t sn...

Re: New to hermit crabs, help?

To get some humidity going you can first Saran Wrap the lid and then lightly mist inside the tank. I believe someone on here also said you can wet a washcloth, wring it out and put that inside with them. We started out the same as you, with just a critter cage they came in. Welcome! Thank you!!

Re: Weird crab

I have 5 out that are out almost all day long. I love waking up and seeing them shell shopping, “swimming”, or climbing the driftwood/net in the tank.

Lost power

So we lost power yesterday afternoon and 11 hours later it’s finally on. First time in 21 years of living here we’ve ever lost power, and it happened to get down to 28 degrees so that was an experience. [emoji854] I wasn’t sure what to do for the crabs because I never planned for this possibility. I...

Re: Molt question

I did not know they did that, very interesting. So when they have the fresh black tips, that is a sign of a non-classic molt? I need to look up more information on this. ♡ Rod ♡ Salty ♡ Bob ♡ Squirt ♡ Crabina ♡ »-♡-> Our Purple Pinchers »-♡-> Any crab that molts will have the black tips and hairy l...

I’m also in Indiana and I’m definitely considering at least one of UTH, but for the side(s). I’m working on insulation tomorrow because it already dropped down in the 30’s last night and I fell asleep with my windows wide open and my tanks got on the chilly side [emoji29] won’t make that mistake ag...

Re: Might be upgrading!!!!

Check reptile basics or bean farm for your UTH. I found one for my 75 gallon that fits end to end and above the substrate line, so I’m sure they probably carry one for a 55 gallon as well. [emoji846]

Re: Moving crabs

I would not recommend that. I think it would be way to crowded. Plus, you also wouldn't be able to prevent anyone from digging down in the 40 gallon. Plus - it will stress your 40 gallon tank crabs out and they would all have to establish the pecking order again. How long would it take you to add t...

If you have a hobby lobby, it’s in the sewing section and its probably called plastic canvas [emoji846]

Moving crabs

Ok so this maybe a dumb question, but I definitely just want to make sure it’s alright before I do it. I have a 40 gallon tank with 4 crabs and a 75 gallon with 6 crabs. Currently no one is molting in the 40, in the 75 I know 2 or 3 are molting. I think the crabs in the 75 gallon should be coming up...

Substrate constantly dry?

Try a mixture of play sand and eco earth at a 5:1 ratio instead of just eco earth. You can pick up a few bags of play sand at any hardware store!
