Worried

Post by CrazyCrabman » Thu Mar 26, 2020 12:52 pm

I bought some upgrades for my crabitat. As i don't live full time at my gf's i sent the stuff with her to put in the tank. The one thing i forgot to tell her was to not add anything if a crab is buried. She went home and added the upgrades (which required some digging). Now i am worried that because there was a crab down she may have inadvertently collapsed a cave or something. What should i do?

How deep is your substrate? Your crabs seem pretty small, so depending on how much the things weigh/how big they are, you might've collapsed a tunnel if they made one. Do you have a few pictures of the tank currently and the stuff you added?

Should I dig him out? My substrate is about 4-6 inches deep. We added a corner pool which is basically on the bottom of the tank and a sizable cave hidey hole. Both areas were dug gently with fingers.

Does your girlfriend remember hitting anything? If she dug and he was there, she'd probably hit his shell. I would suggest letting him be.

She said she didn't feel anything.

So you should be good! Don't worry too much. Hermies can get through some pretty crazy stuff, so I wouldn't worry :D
