Maker, I just wanted to let you know I did speak with Christa and she said she would look into it. She did say she was very busy right now, but I hope she will get back to you soon. If she doesn't, you can PM me and I will check into it again. Thanks!
I missed this totally the first time around, Geranium. Awesome job! Can you also add miscellaneous sources of nitrogen (besides proteins) such as worm castings, sprouts, and decaying oak, maple or sycamore leaves?
I like it a lot Maker. Christa's not always online but I'll pass this on to her and see what she says. I know we've talked in the past about doing this but you know how that goes - thanks so much for doing this; it's really easy to read and would make it easier for new crabbers. Thanks again!

Hi critterguy! Yes, the eggs are viable but unfortunately without a warm ocean for them to hatch in they all perish. Often the crabs simply lay them in the sand near the water (dishes) as they would in nature, but there's no tide to pick them up so they just lay there. Without hours, they start to s...
Tammy has contact information on her site; you could try giving her a call and see what new information she might have. OT: I just saw on the note that she no longer has a retail store; that's sad. I know a few members that enjoyed visiting with her in FL.
She still hasn't dropped the eggs that I can see, but sometimes it takes a while. I wish I lived near the Florida Keys so I could just toss the eggs in the warm water and give them a fighting chance, but I simply don't have the resources here to care for them. Plus with all eight females gravid ther...
Ocean was my first 'pregnant' crab this year; she should drop her eggs by tomorrow or the next day at the latest. You can see the grey mass of eggs on her lefthand side.

gsgirl - if you are talking about the Hermit Crab Patch I highly recommend ordering from them. I've never had a problem with an order and I've placed plenty over the years. Can't speak for livehermitcrab.com, though. Doesn't sound like a place I would personally order from...

I have had all sizes from baby to jumbo go through PPS, but I think it hit the jumbo harder and faster than the little guys. He went from active with antennae waving to dead within 12 hours. I personally think the jumbos can get hit harder and more quickly because they have had that much more time t...

Merged from another threadIt's mating season in hermit crab world again (early summer months) and for the third year in a row I have had 'pregnant' crabs (forget the myth that they don't breed in captivity - they will if you've had them long enough to reach golf ball size and if your conditions are ...

Margaret - I'm still fighting my Farmville addiction! It's crazy how these games take us over. Here's the most recent pic of me - it's also my FB profile pic: The purple washed out of my hair by now (pic was taken in late June) but hopefully I'll get it fixed at the end of August again.
I had a few surface molts in the beginning, when my sand was too dry and too shallow for the crabs to dig in well (and settle in for a month or more). Once I got my conditions better controlled, the surface molts stopped and so far have not returned (and I have a moss pit in the tank regularly).Inte...
