Re: how often should i change food that does not rot?

Any food will eventually mold and rot in the humidity and heat, but some things last longer than others. With nuts, the oils will usually go rancid from the heat before it rots. Wodesorel is right- any food will grow mold eventually. But I discovered that freeze dried animal proteins last for quite...

Re: Decorations

Try getting a very small exercise wheel for them to play on. I heard those are great hermit crab decorations/toys

Wow... The big ones take a long time! I'm glad the big crabs only do it once a year! LOL.

Re: Crab “shaking”/ twitching? (Not an emergency)

Re: A special crab

Angelo is the greatest little crab ever-
Not only is he super cute, but he has an adorable personality. He doesn't get as scared as my other crabs, but explores a lot more. He has a lot of energy, too. And one of his favorite snacks is peanut butter. 😁

Re: Molting crab might be dead? Possible infestation?

Please don't feel to bad, Choandchip, I think we've all felt that feeling where "it's all my fault that it happened". From what you said it looks like you've really worked hard to keep your crab's healthy and happy. I'm not sure how long ago you got your crab, but his experience in the store could h...

I'm so sorry for your loss! This is what I think might be your problem regarding molting. First of all, I think it's best that you avoid crab pellets entirely, because they add bad chemicals to commercial crab food that is NOT beneficial to the crabs. And make sure you are not forgetting animal prot...

New to molting

Hello, my crab buried himself in the substrate some time ago, and he stayed down for seven weeks. Now, last night he came up again, and he's quite lively. Can I move him to the main tank yet? He was hungry, too.

Re: Is My Crab Dead?

No, I couldn't post a photo. He died the next day, and I knew it because the smell got stronger and he started to decay.
Thanks for the help though, guys!
