Creepy crabs......

The first pic is a better focused image of the position I find my crabs in often. I first noticed this one crab sitting in this position, completely still for a long time. I checked back in on my tank a little later and noticed a few other crabs all sitting a tad bit extended out of their shells, co...

Re: Is saltwater or feshwater used more?

Both are necessary. They make their own personal mixture in their shells. As far as preference, it depends on the species. In my experience, my E's love the msw. My PP's love the fw. My straws love the msw. My indo loves the fw. My ruggie loves both. My lila loves the msw. Oh for sure. I have both ...

Re: Finally jumped on the exercise wheel bandwagon..

Aww everything looks beautiful! It's so funny how the crabs know exactly what to do with the wheel. Most of my crabs take days to investigate new tank decor, but not the wheel!

Re: Hermit crab lost a leg while underground

No problem! That's great to hear about the eggshell, that'll help your little guy to prepare to grow a healthy exo as well as your other crabs.

Re: Hermit crab lost a leg while underground

Aww poor baby. Well there is such a thing as "post purchase syndrome" when crabs are stressed they're known to lose limbs.
