Re: Should I introduce my old crab to a new one?

Ive had antennae wars even with crabs thats developed a hierarchy. Its common for crabs to have these disputes and usually its settled in a couple of seconds. The only time I'd worry is if one crab starts going after another crab, lile pinching and often the scuffle is accompanied by chirping. I thi...

Re: Java moss

Java moss requires moist/aquatic conditions in order to thrive. So best placed in the freshwater pool. The metal backing is stainless steel mesh, and will not corrode in the crabs environment and is safe to add. If you want moss outside the bowl, you'll need to source moss that grow terrestrially.

Motor hit the nail on tje head regarding cycled, except ammonia is converted into nitirite and then into the final form nitrate. (Nitrate is removed through algae/plants, waterchanges or anae...

Re: Weird Molt!!!! Please HELP

Its not uncommon for smaller crabs to take a slight while before they come up again. So its entirely likely that she is still happily moulting pr just chilling before coming up again.

Is it possible she is coming up when you're asleep?

Re: Branches for Tank

I'd suggest doing the same as well just in case. Be wary of the type of brnaches you collected, some can cause issues in a sealed environment.

Re: Can you over humidify a crabitat

Higher humidity usually equates to more mould growth, but as mentioned prior its unlikely to be an issue for the crabs.


Analog gauges are known for being a little inaccurate, so I'd calibrate it if you haven't done so already.

Re: Is this a good layout for PVC pieces for a false bottom?

Id pop a little notch so it stops the buildup of water underneath every cap. I think its on the right track.
