Re: Updated Pictures Of My Three Crabitats ~ Picture Heavy

What size tanks are those and what do you use for toppers if you don’t mind me asking?

Update

I did a few revisions to my tank and added 2 PPs. I got a PM from a parent who was experiencing buyers remorse who came back from the beach with 2 Nickel size crabs. He said they were being kept a in the garage cause it was the most humid place in the house in one of those wire mesh carriers. It was...

Re: Diet

I feed my hermies everything that comes from my garden that’s on the safe food list. I’ve gone to the list of reputable vendors from the HCA and purchased the items I don’t have on hand like proteins and leaf litter. If you go to your local farmers market or organic grocery you can really go from ki...

Re: Just sharing a couple of pictures

You tank looks fantastic! Where did you get all that greenery? I’m always so scared to buy the wrong thing if I order it online. Everything in my local pet shop isn’t as pretty and lush as that. A really awesome job. I hope your other crab come up soon. 3 of mine are still down and one came up to ta...

Re: Mold HELP.

Oh so far it’s only in one piece of wood I’m afraid to move it cause I really don’t know where 2 of my crabs are....ack and it’s partly buried in the substrate.

Re: My dilemma...

Re: My dilemma...

What kind of guage do you use to monitor the temp? Where is it located? I personally prefer digital. They are very accurate. I like this one. Measure humidity and temp for $8. Runs off of 1 AAA battery. You can purchase it at Walmart or on Amazon. At Walmart they are in the Home Improvement section...

Re: My dilemma...

My crabs do the exact same thing and line up against the back wall next to the pad under the incandescent heat source. My one E who was on the cooler side of the tank last night walked to the other side and dug right in. I think they just want to be where they want to be and they’re moody haha. BTW ...

Re: Marimo moss balls in water?

The moss balls will be okay in freshwater only. And they are rather pretty. I have them in my community fish tank and my fish and shrimp love them. To keep them looking lush and pretty they have to have flowing water or have water changes often and be fully submerged underwater and have some sort of...

Re: New crabitat!!

Yay! Can’t wait to see what you have going. I bet you crabs thank you for the much needed space. So jealous that your crabs changed shells already. Fingers crossed for the other guy that you’re waiting to come up to switch over. Cheers!

Re: Crabitat done!

I hope he continues to be more active... I'm hopeful now... Most of the crap sand I had is off of his shell since this last time he dug down it was in EE. Starting to set up my new tank later today with the proper substrate levels so I hope he stays above or at least pops back up again when the new...
