Re: Sea Salt For Water

I put trace minerals in the water I give them. Is that okay?

Re: trust

I pick up my crabs every now and then, and they are getting used to me, I think. It can be fun for you AND your crabs once they get used to you. :)

I am not sure how much calcium cuttlebone has, but you have to eat a ton of spinach to get calcium. For example, half an egg shell has 900-1000mg of calcium. But one whole cup of cooked spinach only has 240mg.
I never knew that. I'll be feeding my crabs more egg shells and less spinach.

Sea Salt For Water

Hi, I was just wondering if sea salt salt water would work for my crabs. I have natural sea salt for my crabs (not table salt) and I've been using it for some time now. Someone on this board told me that sea salt is fine, and my crabs seem to be doing okay. But now two people have told me that I nee...

Re: do crabs pee?

I had no idea that they pee under their eyes- I think that's a bit weird. And the fact that they use their legs to poop is actually pretty interesting. I've always wondered how they managed that! :D

Re: Almond Butter Covered Crab

well, I never really measure the sea salt I use, but I really don't know how much to put in it. I have a flukers corner bowel small for my crabs. How much would you recommend putting in it?

Re: Home Sweet Home?

that's too bad. But what if they were just shipped off the coast of Florida and you wanted to take them back home? I probably wouldn't buy them for that purpose, but I was just wandering if that would work.

Home Sweet Home?

If someone went to the coast of Florida, would it be okay to put the crabs back on the beach if they didn't want them anymore? Is that a kind way to re-home a crab, or is it cruel?.

My crabs poop in their water dish all the time- especially when I put extra salt in the salt water dish. :lol:

Almond Butter Covered Crab

Last night I fed my crabs almond butter, and sometime during the night My little Angelo had a flop and got almond butter all over his shell! :lol: I dunked him in his water dish (the shell part of him anyway) but I just can't seem to get it off! I don't want the almond butter to grow rancid. Any sug...
