Re: Crab Won't Get Back In a Shell

A day-ish has passed and he remains in his shell. Seems like all is well and good! Still, I wonder why he decided to leave his shell for near 5 days. Excellent news!!! It’s always encouraging to hear about the successes, bc there are sadly so many who that is the end for them! That’s wonderful, tha...

Re: Foods and Manipulating PP crab color

Great info guys! I’ve always wondered how strong the effect is from diet alone; I love seeing how bright and beautiful they are after freshly molted- it’s one of my favorite things about having crabs for sure. They do come up with some bright bright colors sometimes- vivid purples and blues for mine...

Two New Crabs and a Pinch!

Ha! Funny you mention this.... I finally got pinched by one of my jumbos, too! It wasn’t really in earnest- my son walked up on us too fast, and when he got there I started getting alternating little ‘picking’ type of pinches one claw and then the other. Kinda like they do when they’re sitting on a ...

Re: Hampton Roads, VA

I’m upgrading to a 100 gal tank today, and I have 4 Es, who I would love to add to your! Not that I don’t ‘want’ PPs, I just have about 15 already. [emoji6] The PPs I have range from teeny to jumbo as well, but I would love to grow my exotic tank a bit more, as I am upgrading so much. If you would b...

this is a crab association GET OUT First, I’m no mod. Second, that seems really harsh, and totally uncalled for. Even if it wasn’t in the ‘other pets’ section, who cares?

I can’t even....!!!! Ah! Thanks everyone for sharing in my jumbo molt joy!! [emoji6] Mr EnDoh seems quite happy to...

Jumbo PP Returns!

Ok. So I have Mr S and Princess, my two jumbo PP. I adore them, and to me, every return from molt is a cause for celebration, but especially these really big ones. It was their first with me though, and so for that reason I’m especially relieved. Anyway- according to rough placement from where he ca...

Insulation

Have you considered using one large UTH? It should make for a more reliable and even heat, such as an Ultratherm? Unfortunately, the smaller UTH like the zoomed or similar aren’t meant to be insulated. It can create a fire hazard. That’s why many of us have chosen to use the Ultratherm bc they are s...

Re: Air plants

I know there are some types but am unsure which ones, hopefully @aussieJJDude can give you some pointers- I know there are others who know also, but for sure he knows a lot about that. Good luck- have fun at the show!!

Re: Silently lurking

That is fab!! It’s looking great, and your crabbies seem to be having a blast exploring it all! I hope to do the same and connect multiple tanks in the future- it’s only fair as they grow, or at least that’s gonna be my excuse! [emoji23] Love it- keep up the awesome crabbing!
