Re: Build Diary - The Curio Crab-inet

Do you have a way to access the substrate level?

Re: Few questions about food, feeding and storage

What is an example mix you make? (If you don't mind sharing)

Re: Hermit Crab Intelligence in 2020

I like to believe that hermit crabs have emotions and feelings and thoughts. I agree that you can see distinct traits in different crabs, and preferences for food and shells, and that has to suggest some level of intelligence. I wish the scientists would put some funding into that! XD Sent from my S...

Re: Adding Sub with buried crabs

All done adding the first inch. I was able to remove most of the decor, since most of it just rests on the surface. I was so anxious putting the water dishes back in (since they're heavy), and I'm worried about the amount of pressure I used to push the sub under the platforms. I was as gentle as pos...

Re: Adding Sub with buried crabs

Thank you so much for your reassurance! Owning crabs is already a stressful hobby, so dealing with unusual situations makes it even scarier.

Thanks for the advice everyone! I'll get started tonight!

Re: Tank DECOR IDEAS!!!!!!

Make a popsicle stick bridge! You just need the sticks (you can get a box of 1000 for like $5) and twine to weave around the ends, over-under style. I made this one for my crabbies! You can also build hides and structures out of legos. I've also gotten fish tank decor like coral archways and wrapped...

Re: Adding Sub with buried crabs

Cohld you just add what you can, and push it underneath the platforms? Otherwise, I'd just add what I can in the areas thats easily accessible if you're worried about cravs being under. (The issue is that you dont want to pat it down, hence whhy many reccomend a shallow inch per day layer.) I don't...

Even though they currently have significantly less substrate than they should?

Re: Ideas for decor?

It looks a lot more homey! I feel like creatures from nature appreciate a natural-looking setup. :D

Re: New to molting - need reassurance!

I know your struggle. I worry every single day that I don't see them above-ground. I also wonder how they can go so long without eating, drinking, seeing the light of day! My new crab has only been buried a week and I'm already panicked. But one of the care sheets said something that really stuck wi...

Re: Dreaming Crab?

That's super cute! I've wondered that myself. Its said that they dont really have the mental capacity to experience things like that, but honestly, how could we know that for sure? I like to believe they experience life very similarly to us, so I think they feel emotions and daydream and even love. ...

Adding Sub with buried crabs

Hey crabbers, I have 2 crabs I've had a few weeks now. I vastly underestimated how much substrate I needed, so I currently only have about 4" in my 10gal tank. I want to get it to a minimum of 8", especially since my large crab Clef looks like he wants to molt. I want to make sure he has the right d...

Re: Question about owning new crabs

Thank you for the help with identification! I'm happy regardless of the species, but now I know to stick to PP preferences!
