Re: Home Depot moss?

And Spanish moss is not actually a moss.

Re: Habitat decor

They should be. Most aquarium safe plastics have quite the odor to them.

Re: Home Depot moss?

Does it say it's organic? Spanish moss (tilandsia) is heavily insect infested and is often sprayed with chemicals. The type of moss many crabbers buy is the Moser Lee sphagnum moss which says it's organic.

Re: Bulldozer in rough shape

Antenna can grow back in one go, but because they are tiny they are hard to shed and can break off again while molting.

It sounds like he is in desperate need of a good molt. He should be okay with your others but if you can isolate him until he's done it's never a bad idea!

Re: Habitat decor

Don't boil plastic! Heating it can release chemicals and possibly melt it.

Re: Review - All Living Things Freshwater & Saltwater Solution

There are other approved brands but I’m not sure which ones. Treat your water with prime then mix 1/2cup of salt mix per gallon. Anything used explicitly for saltwater fish is good for hermits. Anything for reef tanks is also safe, like the Instant Ocean with the orange label. There probably over a...

Re: Molting E in Bacterial Bloom & Lost Limbs

I have heard of crabs here that grew limbs back a few at a time, but I've never experienced that myself.

Re: Heating pad or heat lamp?

I've used both, and have switched all my tanks to pads. Much easier to use, and less expensive in the long run as there are no bulbs to break or blow!

Re: What could this be?

He's just kinda sitting in there like he's bored, but he does drink the water I give him daily. I have a vacation coming up and I leave on the 19th, and I do not have a sitter coming over to look after the crabs. Not bored, recouperating just like he would be if he was still underground. They take ...

Re: What could this be?

I don't rush it when they've been dug up too early. They normally wait a few weeks after finishing their exo before coming up. If you put them back too soon they will be weak and smell like molt. I had one torn apart before by the other crabs in the tank. Just give it a little time, wait until he's ...

Re: Encouraging Breeding?

There's much more to breeding than just a good diet and comfort, breeding hermit crabs is not easy in captivity. Actually, getting them breeding and getting eggs really is that easy. Happy crabs means eggs at some point. All of us long timers have had it happen many times over the years. Hatching t...
