Re: Indonesian

My Indo was given to me. His previous owner had a lot of exotics and decided to get out of the hermit crab hobby. She only had one Indo though. I do wish he had a gf! Edit: I haven't officially sexed him yet, I just assumed it is a male! I probably should look! One of these days! Awww! I haven’t se...

Re: Proteins?

It does count as an animal protein for humans, if I’m remembering right! So yes and no I suppose! I’m so helpful. [emoji38]

Re: Stubborn E

Yes! That crazy E literally folded himself up in order to somehow wedge the shell back on! That was too funny RiNiKy! I remember that but I’m not sure I still have it but I know you sent me a clip! I have 1/5 Es that have changed shells, all my others are still in their original shells, still waitin...

Re: 7 crabs molting

I have 7 PP and they are all molting right now. The last one just went down about a day ago. Is that okay or is something wrong? Do I continue to switch their food every other day? The 1st one went down about a month ago and the rest have followed. My crabitat is so boring right now. [emoji26] The ...

Something wrong/on joints of adopted crab?

I'm seeing normal wear and tear. Especially in this type of shell, their legs will rub against the inside and the opening every time they come in and out. Doing so will remove color over time until their next molt, and if they do it when still soft from a molt it can get almost a rug burn appearanc...

Indonesian

I was lucky enough to adopt my pretty guy, and it really is incredibly rare for any store to have them. As I understand it, some exotic pet shops will get them in either on their own or specifically for someone occasionally, which is where my guy cane from originally. I am having a very hard time fi...

Re: ID confirmation

They look like PP to me. Your lighter one reminds me of my Dave, he’s about that shade as well, even freshly molted. [emoji16] Congrats on the adoptees!

Crabs aren't digging

Most of us use basic playsand, it’s less than $5/50lb of sand. The quickrete is filtered so it is all uniform and will mix smoothly, this is why you are seeing the dust as all the particles are going to be more fine grit. I have a pic of what I use. Hang on and I’ll share! Dave the Wondercrab~Pat~Ma...

Re: Stole the green sand

Greensand is a definite favorite, I offer some with almost every feeding, as well as worm castings- their second favorite love! These are also easy to find and order if you don’t have some yet. It’s like they can never get enough! Dave the Wondercrab~Pat~Maggie~ Billy~Pop~Corn~Ten~Sam~MissTeri~Tim~G...

Adding a new crab...

That is correct- different sizes can cut back on shell fights and just general competitiveness. I put one of my smallest with one of my large crabs, and they’re like, idk, almost inseparable! Little Gene is like big Barry’s own personal helicopter parent! [emoji1787] So sometimes different sizes wor...

Re: Do I handle my crabs too much

I’m aware this is an older question, but I wanted to weigh in too. [emoji6] And coming from someone on the other side of the fence- I do handle my crabs. Some more often than others bc they don’t seem to mind and some definitely enjoy being out and interacting. However, most of the time it’s a brief...

Ok I’m going to try to address your questions as I get to them, they’ll be written after the OKT. You’re doing awesome and I’m sorry you didn’t receive more responses before today!

Re: Creepy crabs......

At a guess, they’re all just comfortable not being hidden and are resting? Yeah it’s definitely kinda weird tho! I do wish I knew what they were ‘thinking’ sometimes!!

What are your crabs up to?

The first is Princess enjoying a snack while being stalked by Mr. EnDoh. [emoji6] The second is Corn, who just came up from molt today- she’s super vibrant where her color shows and always keeps lighter tips. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190909/0498a308362d41a94097083062a89782.jpg https://uplo...

Re: moving with molting crabs

What they said; I recently had to move some crabs myself, and we used a tote with an inch or two of sand, not much, but enough, with some moss and munchies, the water bowls present but empty til we got done in the car. We did have to dig a molter up- well, two actually! (Long story) What they said i...
