That is a good idea. Cicada's are pretty much one of the worst things in the world...so good idea to put them to good use.

I really don't think a sponge would help you, anyway. They did little to nothing for my humidity, and were just a pain to clean and take care of.

Thanks, Mud. I was really wondering if you knew, or anyone, about PPs substrate in the wild. I think that's most important since it's what most new crabbers have, and crabbers in general.

I don't want to stifle it. I just want to be sure it's not presented as the only option, when it may be easier to go all playsand for a new crabber. When I post advice to other crabbers, if my way isn't the only accepted way, I make sure to say something like "but others have also had success with b...

As a newbie I want to have all of the information I can get up front. As a fish keeper I try to set up my tanks as close to natural as possible and I would want to do the same for any small animal, like hermit crabs. I don't see why it would be wrong to give someone good advice??? Where did I say i...

Thanks. I'm not worried about my substrate choice - like I said I've had almost no problems with substrate for almost 6 of crabbing now. I was just curious about the 5:1 ratio. I think it's good to suggest that ratio if someone is having trouble with keeping their humidity up. I don't think we shoul...

Thanks for the great replies, everyone. With all my tanks overtime, I've used a large range of substrates. From all EE, all sand, half and half, etc. Right now I've got one tank with about half EE and half sand, and the other one that I just did a deep clean on, I went to all sand. The crabs don't s...

A Discussion on Substrate

I wanted to have a discussion about substrate. I don't know if I've missed the memo, but recently there have been recommendations by a couple of people to use the 5 parts sand, 1 part EE mix. (with the crushed oyster shells) I wanted to hear why this is a good idea, and have a general conversation a...

My point remains the same. I would love to at least see Bob around the HCA offering some thoughts and insight straight from the horse's mouth. It's cool that you can share what he says, but it would be more ideal if it came straight from Bob. That way there would be less of a whisper down the lane e...

He has nothing to hide. He is hiding nothing. Anyone can call him and he will talk to you and teach you. I have never felt judged by him and ive asked some really stupid questions.. It's great that he shares info like this...but in reality, every interested party, and everyone who would benefit fro...

Thanks Crabola. I would think some of his 20 years of information would be available for the public because of the same reason why I think all the information we have right now was made available to the public.

This is his house, right? I don't think any kids would be able to find him and break in and do something as you suggested...I understand that he is weary of who he lets in, I think he should be. If pictures were taken and Bob says it's ok to post them, I think they should be posted. Bob has been res...

He has many documentations about his work and the different species. He does have DNA testing and years of documentation about the new species. He has also made sure that it was not just one crab but yes species that has been out there but yet to be found and documented. Are these documents publish...

Hi Caroline. Glad to see you back. Happy to see your crabs too, more happy to see you though! Tanzanite is not quite like any crab I have ever seen before, he is beautiful.

There is a big shell shortage in the wild. And I would never buy a glass shell myself because 1 - there are cheaper alternatives and 2 - my guys bang on the glass all night long and I'd be worried it might chip off. And I don't want to see my crabs ugly butts. Extra censorship near the bottom of the...
