Re: baby hermit crabs

I think that out of 17 batches of eggs Curlz was able to have 2 or 3 successful groups of baby crabs. Well. It's 19 attemps and 5 times successfully. ;) I have an english documentation attached in this forum. But you can find it also on my english page of my german Blog (Curlz Crabs Blog - Breeding...

Re: Pictures of my crabitats (Successful Viola Breeding)

sorry I was not here for a longer time... @crabby1: I do have losses. Unfortunately a lot of losses :( overall I had 56 adult LHCs since April 2009 till now. (The breedings are not counted here.) 25 died in this time. Mostly because of PPS/molting problem and overgrowding in the first years. And I'v...

Re: Zoea *successful captive breeding & rearing of C. variab

off topic : One quick question...about what size are the females, when you ALL have noticed that they start having the eggs? I would like to start watching mine better. Size is not the only point (as I told you in your thread). I do not realise or saw when my femals had or have eggs. I do not pick ...

Age a FEMALE has EGGS

Well, I can't tell the age of my adult females. Nobody really can tell that. The size of each species is different. But the male tubes has to fit ( to her gonopores). A good condition, good food and enough space to hide, climb and run are important - in my opinion. And yes, a floating marine salt wa...

Warning: That shop is banned in our German-hermit-crab-forum for several reasons! Many of our users had trouble with their orders: Dead or ill crabs, now answers from the shop-owner and so on. :roll: I wouldn't order there, not even here from Germany. /sign Me, too.

Re: Aussie Zoea - raising attempt 2016

My fingers are crossed!
Nat can help better because she successfully bred C. variabilis twice.
But as I already said: feel free to ask - maybe I can help you either.

Re: New to the forum, but been crabbing for a few years!

still it is just a guess. The details are not enough for me to be 100% sure. But I am nearly 75% sure. Becuase of the already named reasons and because C. purpureus are very rare. They are lovely anyway. <3 I love "ruggies" because they stay in small size - compared to other species. And theyx are c...

Re: New to the forum, but been crabbing for a few years!

hi Rae, the first one is a C. violascens juvenile Picture 2-3 do not show enough species characteristics. I only can guess. My first thought: C. rugosus. Because of the shape and color of the big claw. The last picture shows a C. rugosus for me,too. Because I think there are some dark spot underneat...

Danys ?-Coenobita-breeding-thread

As a career?
The chance to bred them successfully is very rare.
The costs are high.

Nobody would by 60$ for one hermit!

Re: Summer Research

I did 15 breeding attempts. Watched several other attempts and in my opinion only a Kreiseltank is there best solution to raise larvae. Good Artemia and good marine salt are important. Constantly good water conditions, temperature and density \ saltinity too. Daily water change and cleaning are also...

Re: Transition Tank for Breeding Project

Hi there. If you really plan to do breeding attempts, do not use sponge as filter in marine salt water. No filter only daily water change and cleaning. And keep all water tanks as clean as possible. No sand on the floor. Do your hermits already hatch eggs or showing breeding behavior? Gesendet von m...
