Re: My crab keeps getting naked, running around and then going into a new shell

I just feel so bad isolating him in that small critter keeper for so long it barely has space for the small water bowls and water bottle caps with food and calcium I need to buy a bigger one

My crab keeps getting naked, running around and then going into a new shell

So my crab had shed about a week ago so I quarantined him with his skin since he was weak and put him back after his exoskeleton was mostly back. A day or two later he was naked and trying to retreat to a hideout he was comfortable in so I caught and quarantined him again with the shell he left alon...

I have used a wire shelf with craft mesh attached. I attach the shelf to the side with command strios. And use a bird ladder for them to climb.
Thx : D

Does anyone know how to add a second floor inside the tank?

I want to add an entire second floor inside the tank with an opening for a net or stairs with a railing so hermits can get up. Does anyone know what this would be called or if it exists?

What's harmful to giant African millipedes?

I want to get a black train millipede very soon since they require a similar setup to hermit crabs. Does anyone know what consumables/items can hurt them?

Re: I accidentally brought a foreign creature home!

I needed the salt for my hermit crabs anyway because I was out, but she made me wait until the next day and I knew it would be too late by then but she just couldn’t listen to a word I had to say, could she? Nope, because she obviously doesn’t give two craps about a living creature and now I have to...

Re: I accidentally brought a foreign creature home!

My grandma wouldn’t let me get the salt water I needed and as a result, I’ve been carrying the haunting weight of their death for a week now. I really tried my best by putting them in spring water even though I knew they would probably die and now I have to feel terrible for something that could’ve ...

Re: I accidentally brought a foreign creature home!

It looks like one of the big isopods you see underwater. It’s small and white and I found it in a shell under the water. This is in Florida and I only see results for the huge isopods

To post pictures you need the Tapatalk app.

I don’t think my parents would let me get that. I’m not quite ready to tell them why I would need the app anyway, and that I have this creature. Do u think there could be another way?

I accidentally brought a foreign creature home!

I was on a small beach in a wildlife area and took a small shell, not realizing there’s what looks like a pill bug with fins on the back of it. There’s two small ones that have no fins. Now I have them in a small glass bowl with the shell and don’t know what to do since I won’t be going back for a l...

Re: Websites that humanely ship hermit crabs?

Are Carribean's the same as PP's?? If so, why would you want anything else?? LOL!! How big of a tank do you have? I have a 50 gallon tank. I like Caribbeans and I care more about the actual crab than what it looks like, I just doubt I’ll ever find a different type as long as I’m in Florida and I li...

Re: Websites that humanely ship hermit crabs?

Agree with Xeno. Most of us recommend adopting rather than shopping. Where do you live? Do you currently have crabs? I live in Florida and hermit crabs aren’t real popular in my area. I doubt I’d be able to adopt crabs from anyone unless it’s a crazy drive that my parents wouldn’t let happen, even ...

Websites that humanely ship hermit crabs?

Does anyone know of people or websites that humanely ship hermit crabs? I can't imagine it's bad to do humane overnight shipping, especially since that's how they get to the pet store. (though idk about "humane" or "overnight" in that case). All I can get where I live are Caribbeans and it would be ...
