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

Not for now. Everything you have filled out above is perfect. I would recommend adding calcium to their diet. Egg shells would be the easiest way. Other than that leave your crab alone and let him do what he needs to do. Taking the size of your crabs and your sub debth into consideration, means your...

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. Even if your crabitat is perfect sometimes the move is all it takes for them to be overstressed. This doesn't mean he's bound to pass away though, hopefully he'll molt soon and ...

Is saltwater or feshwater used more?

Just out of curiosity is saltwater or dechlorinated feshwater used more by your crabs? What is more important for their molting and/or health? Of course both need to be readily available for them to drink and bathe but which of the two seems to be preferred?

Re: ANTS EVERYWHERE NEED A HOME (ARKANSAS)

Also cake Vaseline on every entrance of ants you find! Smear it on everything! I have my tank lid and base covered in it, ever since I found ants in my home. You can sort of see it in my pic. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190902/56e243509b9e757663a650af4f0cb6b4.jpg Sent from my LG-SP320 using T...
