Re: New Crab Owner and Clueless!

I clean all my tanks for crabs and other reptiles with a 50% vinegar water solution. Rinse well until you can no longer smell the vinegar.

Re: Ecuadorian

I’m resigned to only ever having PP’s. That the only thing my local pet store has had for years.

Been gone a long time

Just thought I’d drop in and say hi. Haven’t been here in years, but as a friends daughter started talking about hermit crabs it was natural for me to think of my favourite source of information. I once went by crablady4. Then as lizardlady and now I’m just Mamakins. A nickname my husband gave me ye...

Lizardlady -two years ago I started entertaining and educating kids at birthday parties with all my pet reptiles. The name came automatically as the kids would call out "the lizard lady's here!"

Woohooo!! Two females with eggs!! Update P.6! BABIES!!

So sorry that you've had more losses. Don't get too down though. You are doing a great job and we are all rooting for you. And you are VERY lucky your husband is so involved. My husband won't go near any of my animals (and there's a room full). Except the dogs. If he new what I paid for some of them...

My crabs don't behave like crabs!

It does sound like you are doing everything fine. And really they are acting like crabs just not all crabs. The fact that they don't dig could be a compliment on your tat set up really. They may feel comfortable enough that they don't need to hide underground. As far as molting goes, they will molt ...

What are some signs that a crab isn't doing so well?

It is very hard to tell with these nocturnal critters if all is well. Unless you pull an all nighter to watch their every move. I kind of keep an eye out when i put in some of their favorite food (like fish). If there are any that don't come running for that they I will keep a closer eye on them.
