New crab adopted today

Hello everyone! I rescued this guy from a local pet store - he looked like he needed a good crabitat, and I couldn't leave him there. He's cloudy eyed and clumsy. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/14/10/21/c1a08707f81d4cae1a2f2bb46f12d648.jpg http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/14/10/21/b4ff64e4ddf557...

Re: 4 crabs, all molting?

It can take awhile, but once they do come up it's part time! :)

Re: found pieces.

What's going on since? Did you get your crabitat upgraded for the best living conditions? Your guy could use a good molt, I'm sure. Hoping it's going better

Re: Peanuts and Sunflower seeds recycled from mouse food?

I think you'd be fine if you're pulling out the peanuts and sunflower seeds. If you decide not to feed them to your hermies, the birds would gobble that up!!

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

Yeah I agree that there may be a few issue but I really don't see the problem, prices are ok-way better then crabby patch- shipping is standard overnight. The wait is a little long but she's not stealing money or anything. I will most likly order from cranberries next time as they have blue and str...

Re: Unsafe Food List from EH

We are having a discussion on a thread about houseplants in the crabitat. This plant came up but it's in neither safe nor unsafe list.

Zebrina pendula, also known as Wandering Jew.

Does anyone have information?

Re: Deep substrate IS important. 9 PP's down!

I have added more substrate to mine with guys down under. When I do it, I mix it up outside the tank and add a little at a time. I'll sprinkle an inch or so over the top and let the crabs pack it in.

Re: Deep substrate IS important. 9 PP's down!

How long have you had yours? :) It depends. If they are new and from the pet store AKA bad conditions, then they are de-stressing or molting. If you're like me and you've had them for a while, it's just what crabs do! May take weeks. It's actually cool cause then they all molt at the same time and ...
