Hermie stuck in cholla!!! Pls HELP

He's about 4 in deep in to a 12 in cholla...the really nice big kind from the HCP. He's really stuck. I'm not trying to pull him out cuz he'll just go further down. Don't worry, I would never pull hard enough to rip him out of his shell. I've had many crabs get in there a little bit. They seem to lo...

Re: Sudden Shell Fighter...HELP!

I think one of the things they need the most is time :( Imagine going through all that they did, and then being plopped into a small space full of strangers. It'd be awful, and I've heard of a few crabs who never really get over it :( So time, patience, tlc and more patience. I hope the best for yo...

Re: Sudden Shell Fighter...HELP!

I think the moon phases have something to do with it too~just a thought. I know my crabitat looked like a crab-sized tornado had swept through Saturday after the full moon. They all seem calmer now too...with the exception of the one who obviously needs therapy! It does seem like yours could benefi...

Re: Sudden Shell Fighter...HELP!

2 of my 3 e's are still in the hideous, tacky, ugly shells I got them in :angry1: They've molted several times each & are way to big for their shells but e's are notorious for being stubborn when it comes to changing shells. I actually got lucky...I bought 4 e's (I lost 1 about a month or so after b...

Re: Sudden Shell Fighter...HELP!

There must be something going on! Have you read the post nicole3 put up about her killer crab? What is going on w/all these hermies :? I'm just kidding though. W/so many of us on here there are bound to be multiple stories of odd behavior going on at the same time. But it sure does strike me as real...

Re: Sudden Shell Fighter...HELP!

Other than my teeny rescue, who's molting in an iso tank :D, I haven't bought a pp since January...I don't have the space :( Jewel has molted w/me several times & has made some strange shell choices in the past :roll: but she's never been aggressive like this :smt062 In fact, she's never been aggres...

Sudden Shell Fighter...HELP!

All has been fine in the pp tank until recently. Jewel has been terrorizing all of her tank mates to the point that when the see her coming the high tail to anywhere she isn't :( She has now forced 2 crabs (that I know of) out of their shells...one was larger & one was smaller. No matter what, she d...

Re: AHHHH! Shell Fight!!! help

All shell fighting has ceased but the 2 largest (1 male, 1 female) have been pushing each other around :smt064 It's just like having human kids :roll: Their home is back up & running :banana: but I they're just huddled together on a cholla. My guess is the switching from place to place has been stre...

AHHHH! Shell Fight!!! help

I witnessed my first shell fight :shock: I've run into many snags in trying to move & do my re-setup of the pp's 29gal tank, so they are still in the 10gal iso tank...3 in one & 4 in the other :oops: It's bad, I know. Luckily I am GOING to complete their home tomorrow. I've never had any trouble & I...

I was thinking the exact same thing! Crazy! It also struck me as "hey, I'm someone man", like not wanting to be forgotten.

Re: Are my hermit crabs mating?

I'm not sure about love but they could be mating. Tank conditions may contribute to mating but from what I was told they're still not sure what makes some crabs mate in captivity & others not...they just don't know. Keep an eye out for eggs! Goodluck :D

Re: giving up on names?

I am dying for the moment when everyone realizes that crabs, like humans, are not all alike :smt115 ...they don't all like the same things, behave the same way, molt at the same rate, etc. Sorry, I'm a bit crabby myself today :x

Re: Safe Food List from EH

Is there a safe plant list? I'd like to add some in as I'm redoing my tank. Anyone know if orchids are alright? I grow orchids & the temp/humidity in a crab tank is perfect for them!
