Pictures For Instagram

Post by aussieJJDude » Tue Oct 15, 2019 4:10 pm

Would love to have your little dude on Instagram, a small #crabby #celebrity?
HCA wants to showcase what's happening on the forum, as well as becoming a community feed by all!

What's required?
1. A picture that's yours! (Photos that's arent yours are no allowed!)
2. Ideally nice/high quality (a link to the original file is a nice addition! ^_^ )

Share them below (or through PM), and who knows? Your pinchy friend may become the next star on @HCAinsta ! Or your newly set up crabitat may spark some inspiration from others! Doesnt matter - as long as its crab oriented - you could see your snap up on insta!

Please also feel free to write a short plug of your hermie, so we can allow swoon over the little dude and what they are doing.


Edit: also happy if you want to email your pictures, since I've recently found out that compression of the file occurs on forum! Email in profile - so feel free to message away there - or link to other sites (like Flickr or Googledrive/dropbox) that doesn't compress file sizes! ^_^



Edit 2: shameless plugs for instagram handles are allowed! Either include in original post, or feel free to PM (which some connection to the picture, so its easier to keep track of what is what).

Guys. These are incredible!


Happy if you want to swamp the forum out with pics, you're not limited to one. Of course, shameless plugs are free game, so if you want your insta handle included, please leave it in the message (or PM)!

My Instacrab is @dcomoss
It is not only hermit crabs. It includes Fleabags travels, concert and music related stuff, and whatever else. You have been warned.

Keep your eye out for those $1/gallon sales at Petco/PetSmart. Image I bet they'll have one after Christmas. Maybe a cheap one will pop up on here soon too. Image
Your son is too cute with the crabs btw!
