Re: Whole food vs crushed

I've been doing both and it seems like they prefer larger pieces so far. They absolutely love peppers and asparagus, those have gone almost immediately after putting it in hahaha

Whole food vs crushed

Do hermits prefer their food to be crushed up or crumbled? Or will they eat from bigger pieces? And has anyone noticed if they prefer mixed selections or separated in the dish? I might be overthinking it, but I want them to be happy with their food choices.

Re: Cleaning the crabitat

I have a folding glass lid, and I've had it slid slightly back from the front of the tank to keep the humidity around 90%. I think it just has not been wiped down since I moved them in so that might help too. It's not a huge problem, just an annoyance hahaha Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapat...

Re: Cleaning the crabitat

I figured it would come back, just wasn't sure if I should even bother. I've been trying to get pics of Shenzi and my two new Es to post but it's just so humid hahaha I think I'll clean it this weekend then take pics right away so I can post them!

Cleaning the crabitat

I am curious if you should or shouldn't clean the glass inside the tank? My glass is very wet from the humidity in my tank, which is good for the humidity, but it's obviously not good for crab watching. Is there a way I can or should clean it or should I just suck it up and deal with the moisture?

Re: Moss pit molt......

I was worried about Ed, and apparently rightly so. I went in to check on them and found him out of his shell, and freshly molted! He didn't manage to get all legs and is missing at least 2. I found Shenzi on top of his shell beside him, I think if I had been a little later, he would have been a sna...

Re: Couldn't stay away

The first is the tat from above, it's a 29 gal. The second is Shenzi, sorry about the glass, I didn't want to scare her so it's zoomed. The third one is Banzai, he is a gorgeous dark color! Ed is hiding in the moss pit still, I'm hoping he's ok and not suffering from post purchase syndrome. I've giv...

Re: Couldn't stay away

I am going to get some pics of the tank tonight hopefully, I can post them then. I am not 100% done filling it because I am nervous about putting the foliage in before they molt for the first time. But that's really all I have left to do. Maybe one of them will be out exploring for the pictures. Sen...

Couldn't stay away

I was part of the forum about 5 years ago, then when buying a house had to adopt them out because I couldn't care for them. I recently decided I couldn't live without crabbies in my life! I just got 3 new crabbies, pps, over the weekend. They are still super scared so no pics yet, but I'll get some ...

Weigela: safe or unsafe?

I am curious if anyone knows if the flowering bush, weigeka, is safe for hermies? I have many growing in my yard and would love to harvest from them if they are, but I don't want to hurt my new hermies if it's not, and I didn't see it mentioned on either food list. Thanks to all who can give info! :...
