New babies

After mourning the loss of my first hermit, a purple pincher named Maui, I eventually decided I was ready to try again. I picked up a couple today, one tiny and one that's quite large (I am hoping he's nice to my little guy). Due to general distrust of pet store employee advice, I didnt ask many que...

Re: Molts are nerve-wracking!

Same here! I just constantly fret about if his tunnel collapsed, or if he got too cold, or was just old (I have no idea what his age is), or if he had enough calcium, or if he is remembering to change his underwear.

Re: What's wrong with my crabs?

It seems like you have their major needs under control. Do they get enough calcium and protein in their diets? They need both of these to have a solid healthy molt. Do you offer plenty of fresh and salt water? You covered a lot of the info already, but we may be able to better assist if you fill out...

Re: Small Crabs Underground for 3 Months
