Re: What kind of shells are these?

I keep getting them with adoptees, and the former owners are, like, "they never change shells, but here, take them!" I have a little row of them on my bookshelf now. :| I'm going to start making jewelry with unwearable shells. We get so many with adoptions... Sent from my LGMS550 using Tapatalk I u...

Re: Does everyone's crabs try to escape all the time?

Aside from eating, drinking, moss munching, and what not of course. Is this normal? Also, I've read about crabs comparing sizes. I've had four crabs for a year now and I haven't seen this yet :( I'm hardly ever in the same room so I can't say they haven't done it. Just that whenever I AM in here I'...

And if you want to see them in the wild, visit Guam.

The coconut crab is the hermit crab's cousin - the big bad one which doesn't need a shell.

It is illegal to import them into the US.

Re: Sorry, one more...

Smoothies! I received a Nutri Ninja for Christmas and so, I have been making smoothies every day. They include: mixed berries (strawberries, black berries, blue berries) , bananas, kale, Spanish, and a small amount of yogurt. Can I give some of the smoothie to the crabs? I am pretty sure everything...

Re: Birde Prime

I can't find an ingredient list, and I would not risk it until we know for sure that it is safe.

Re: Acceptable foods

None of these are worth keeping, Nate, as they all contain either copper sulfate or ethoxyquin, preservatives unsafe for hermit crabs. The All Living Things variety diet does not contain those ingredients, so far as I can tell from reading the tiny print on the label. I'm looking at a 4 oz canister...

Petco Dollar-a-Gallon Sale includes 75G

I was in my local Petco today when I learned that Petco is having another dollar a gallon sale right now, and this one is the best yet. This sale includes Aqueon tanks from 10G to 75G. Previous sales stopped at 55G. In case you are wondering how big it is, the standard chart says the 75G measures 8 ...

Interesting. I didn't know Walmart carried hermit crab food.

Re: Dried shrimp and bloodworms?

Look in the fish section; all of the single ingredient foods are acceptable sources of protein (and I am using most of them).

I ise the All Living Things turtle medley with my hermit crabs; it's a diverse source of protein and makes for a great base for food mixes.

Re: Zoomed Bearded Dragon diet (?)

I agree with Rawrgeous, as well as the others on here. Not sure where you got off on the personal attacks. But we do take pride in knowing what is good & proper for our crabs around here. So any "agenda" is just good ol knowledge of hermit crab tendencies from their natural habitats. Please take ca...
