Re: Isopod

Smartphone cameras are incredibly powerful these days - that's what I'm using to take my pictures. Stick a magnifier up to the lens and shoot away, although it's hard to get clear pics. Needs lots of light and steady hands! Either way, it's a good alternative to a microscope if you don't have one. T...

Re: Isopod

I've missed a lot then - nice to see some familiar faces still here! Haven't had any hermits since moving to Canada, but rediscovered this forum when I found these little guys. It's cool how they carry around mini versions of themselves.

Isopod

About a month ago I caught isopods from my backyard (and one that somehow made it indoors by itself?), because I thought it would be interesting to be able to observe them for a while. Today I noticed this... Never thought they would breed this quickly, especially since I didn't have soil setup - a ...

Re: Grapes is bullying/attacking my new straws!

I did that too, but Grapes isn't the afraid of me type. But if that works for Bella I think I'll continue doing that to Grapes and see if she changes.

Grapes is bullying/attacking my new straws!

And the straws are all bigger than her! She basically gets on their backs and flip the straws over. She had done this 3 times since this morning when I put them in, and I'm afraid she thinks they're intruders and will eat the straw. I gave them all a bath before putting them in. Should I separate Gr...

Thanks for all the info! He's already getting hard, but he didnt finish eating his leg and claw. Normal? Is it normal for them to not want to come out when being held? The lights are on, is he scared of light because already a long time not in bright place? Also the BP looks smaller than a normal on...

1st molt

One of my crab is molting. I at first found him out of shell but responding. From what I read from other posts i should protect him with a lid or something. So I took a tissue box to cover him. When I checked half an hour later the skin is off the crab and he is squishy. That was on 25 Oct. As the d...

Some of my escapees died... Geez ants were eating them! Ants=a pest you won't be able to ignore...(or get rid of)
Once I got lucky though, my mum found one outside the house, it was about to fall into the sewer. Couldn't think of how it got there. any ideas?
