Re: First time crab owner needing some help

They probably have eaten at night when you don't see them, and burrowing in a new environment is usually their way of relieving stress.

Molting worries

However, I have less than ideal soil (three parts creature soil to one part calci-sand) that is only about 2 inches deep so I'm worried he won't survive. Should I move him out, though he has already bega...

Re: Hello All! Lifelong Crab Lover, New Here

I love sparky's shell! How old do you think sparky is? however old he (or she) is, my crabs must be about that age.
