Re: Emergency- Florida Fighting Conch? (Strombus alatus)

Hey, whalebone. How are things going, were you able to find someone to help? I think you're doing everything you can to try and help him, unfortunately these things happen sometimes. I'm just hoping someone local was able to take him for you. Did you try the pet shops that have salt water fish in yo...

Re: Blueberry Hermit Crabs

Lila and Viola have been sold as blueberries throughout the years. True blueberries are in the Southern Japanese archipelago, and maybe a bit farther South than that. The other 2 are found on Island nations that regularly export crabs.

Re: Killing anaerobic bacteria

I found that wide bottom reptile dishes might be a bit shallower than what people would prefer, but it's impossible for the crabs to tip because they're so wide that a tunnel underneath it doesn't make much of a difference. Another option is to create a second level and put the water dishes up there...

Re: Dried flowers?

I have this same flower mix for my crew. I put it in with a bunch of other foraging items and they love it! Please do! I want some! [emoji3059] I’m hoping to get a bunch of lilacs this year now that we live in our new house, I missed the blooms last year thinking I had time. 😁 Lilacs are always the...

Re: SURVEY! SHELLS

Shop. The shine can get removed quickly when on substrate or moss, and I like mine to look as new as possible for as long as possible.

Re: Dried flowers?

Trays and trays and trays that dry down to absolutely nothing. 😂 I've never been a huge fan of marigolds either, but they require zero upkeep so it was never a chore to have them. Just plunked them in around the tomatoes for some color at the back.

Re: Dried flowers?

Oh, thank you! Depending on how the summer goes, I was thinking about doing a limited run again come fall. That mix was always the best to put together because it was the most fun to collect and dry. My house would smell like lilacs for weeks afterwards, and it gave me an excuse to have gorgeous gar...

Yes, I use this one and the other one for I think Beardies, with the crabs.

Re: The great oak bark banquet

Wait until spring and try a small branch with leaves! They'll turn it into toothpicks in no time.

Re: Blueberry, Indo & PP crabs

Not quite a decade on the true blueberries. Lhc.com had them right before they shut down. There were also kiosks in the Western part of the United States that carried them for quite a while. Maybe 5 years ago.

Re: New crabs- light colored injuries (?) and quarantine questions

They can get those patches sometimes from rubbing against the edges of their shell. I've also seen it when they got sand on them while still wet from moulting. It's harmless and if he changes shells before his next molt they should disappear

Re: Big worm in tank!! In Cholla

Definitely, thank you so much! 10 inches of substrate in 55 gallons this weekend was not what I was looking forward to lol. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk It can be really alarming! I had similar ones after putting elm bark into my tank. Waking up to find little worms everywhere was kind of...

Re: Big worm in tank!! In Cholla

It looks like a beetle larvae of some sort. Sort of like a mealworm. I wouldn't worry about it, it's not going to hurt the crabs!

Re: Need help with an ID.(Image heavy)

Captive crab ID is done through claws. Can you please share photos of their claws when closed up in their shells? I think blueberry (C. purpureus) is unlikely only because they aren't known to be exported anymore. C. lila is much more likely, though they too have not really been imported much (if at...
