Re: Saltwater red legged hermit crab SHELLS

These guys aren't picky at all and change 'clothes' nearly everyday if given enough of a 'wardrobe'. Most SWFS will give you empty shells (or at a small cost), but your best option is as mentioned, craft stores or the craft section of your local WM. Even the dollar store carries small baggies of the...

Hehe, I'm berry berry sneaky. Good to know on the Aussies. I stand corrected (: Happy to see you Wode (well, 'see' is an extension of my virtual ability to 'see' you) ha-ha, hello old friend.

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

Aussies are not technically 'in stock', while she has them listed as so, its my understanding (per inquiries to her) that she is waiting for them to arrive. That could takes weeks in addition to the 'de-stress' time she claims to allow them.

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

For those who are still thinking about buying from LHC, I want to offer an update. I ordered 6 ruggies in June. They were shipped on the day promised. 7 arrived and were active and healthy looking. One didn't survive its first molt. I was doing a deep cleaning after transferring the hermies to a 55...

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

I emailed her two weeks ago with a few questions. It took a while to receive a response, but I eventually did and placed an order. Here's the information on crab arrival and shipping from the email she sent me: I don't know if this helps anyone, but at least it's information. Interesting because I ...

It's interesting that the molting stage seems to be the most troublesome. Same applies to our wild captured crabs during their captive molts.

Last question (for now lol) What does she normally charge for the overnight shipping? If I am remembering it correctly isn't it around $35?

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

Ok so now I need an opinion - I really want violas - BUT - I really don't want to have another tank set up. I have empty tanks - I just don't want to deal with two tanks on a regular basis. Is it ok to mix the PP's, E's, and violas? Or should I maybe just not get the violas until I am ready for ano...

I got small Violas just last month, they were a perfect size small :D

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

Great info as I am considering placing an order. So, last year the delay was months, as in multiple months? Did she give any notice before shipping? My concern is that I would not be able to ensure that someone is here to receive the crabs when delivered. Thoughts? Yes, unfortunately it took more t...

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

The one good thing at least is that everyone knows what to expect, and knows that in the end she'll come through. Last year I think was terrifying for people since they thought they got scammed by the constant delays and lack of communication. This year it's up to everyone who has or wants to order...

Re: My Straw (Perlatus) baby thread. Update: Megalopa stage

I am not even close to knowing enough about all this to offer much advice but as a salt water reef keeper I wonder if some small frags of live rock would allow some hiding spots for these little guys? It's also a natural filter and would add beneficial organisms to the water. My only concern would b...

They're probably out of them, I just looked it up and they're only accepting pre-orders right now. Happy Crabbing! :crabbigsmile: I placed my 'pre-order' three weeks ago ($100+) and it was for a shipment posted for 8/1. Without any notice it now says end of August. I didn't get an email, I am only ...
