Re: blood worms

My crabs eat about a tablespoon of bloodworms per day! As soon as I put them in, they come out & start chowing down..rarely are there any left the next day.

I have a tank of mixed species (although I am very unsure of what they are!) :oops:

I know I have a few PP's & I believe at least 1 is a ruggie (of course, I could be totally off) I hope to get really good & clear photos in the future...

Just a quick update: I got home tonight to find this little one had finished the EXO, and was running around like crazy, I saw it drinking from the clam shell in ISO with it, and it was bouncing (literally) off the walls of ISO, so I lifted it up, and it went over & started munching on a piece of ch...

Ok. Thanks.

I have a variety of stuff out for the other crabs, being that they are all new, I can only locate 1 other (above ground) I can see where 2 or 3 of the others tunneled down (1 under driftwood, & 1 under a hidey)

Wanted to add, just peeked in to see him happily munching away on the Exo. :) hopefully this means he has a good chance of surviving?
He must have been very happy with the warm humid tank, as he was in a very warm, but very dry tank before...
How do I know when he is ready to be released from iso?

Thanks. I decided to go ahead & just put a little shell of fresh water under there. I used a little plastic storage container that has mesh sides, but is solid color (not opaque) and as soon as I set the water in & covered him, I can see his legs & claws coming out of the shell. His shell appears to...

Thanks so much! I appreciate the help! :) Should it be fresh or saltwater? I will do that & hope he pulls thru. He chose to molt directly under the bulb... (it's a red reptile bulb) I hope he does too. I guessed that he was molting this morning, because he was very pale & white looking... I don't ha...

Surface molt. Need help...

On of the smaller crabs I brought home yesterday was very still once he got home. I had appointments to have my foster dogs spayed & neutered today, and have been gone a good part of the day. (11 hrs) I got home & the Exo is beside his shell. And I think he's still in there. I know the others may ki...

I just set up a 55, and I am honestly surprised at how cheap it was!! I hit dollar tree for vines & found some green leafy vines wrapped around a fake wood vine for $1 each, I got 2, and they are about 4 ft each! I also bought a few leafy flower assortments to just stick in the sand behind the drift...
