Correction: May need a chiller if you don't have an AC unit in the room. You most likely can mix them together since they are from the same temperature zone.

Re: Taking shells from the beach

Here in New England we only have marine hermit crabs up in the tidal waters during the summer months, otherwise they are in deeper waters. The only times we find empty shells on the beach is after a good storm over the ocean, usually any shell I find is occupied by a snail or hermit. I wouldn't take...

Re: I need help identifying my new crab's species!

A person from Petco told me that Petco no longer carries any species but PPs.

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

Cancelling my order, done with LHC.com. Hopefully, in the future, there will be a place that sells exotic hermit crabs and actually has/ships them.

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

So you got your money back? That's good to hear. I'm in the same boat at the moment. I had to go through three different people at paypal before I spoke to someone who said they would email her and tell her to give me a refund. The first two people at paypal said that LHC.com would have to contact t...

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

I just ordered some Aussies! I'll let you guys know how it goes! Fingers crossed :D I ordered 4 medium Aussies and 4 small Ecuadorans today. I emailed her about ordering and shipping, she quoted me $38 shipping and said she's about two weeks behind. We'll see. I hope we both get our orders without ...

Re: Saltwater red legged hermit crab SHELLS

From what I've seen on them in the stores they will pretty much take any shell they can get. If a LHC will use it they most likely will too. From what I gather they change shells a lot anyway.

Re: How long should I wait before giving up?

At last count I had 9 in a 38 gallon tank (36x12x21) and their water bowls are raised up from the bottom so they have the entire floor area to dig and molt under without the weight of the bowls pressing down on the substrate.

Re: How long should I wait before giving up?

But the issue is, the only holes I've seen in the substrate have been large holes, the size of my four biggest crabs. I haven't seen a small hole in ages. I used to see the smaller ones when I would occasionally give the substrate a good spray down, but not since June. I'm planning on upgrading to a...

How long should I wait before giving up?

OK, so I moved into our new apartment in April, a month later I moved all of their Eco to one side of the tank and added play sand to the other half. At that time all ten of my crabs were alive and well, and immediately buried down. Shortly later I found a dead crab, one of my five smaller ones. Sin...

Got a message from AT&T about a security breach.

A lot of password cracking programs use a dictionary of words to start with. If you use a long word and put a number in the middle of it and special symbols it will take longer to crack. ie: "Alphabe8tically_Not.Really"Also, some firewalls will block an IP Address if it detects too many requests fro...

we are a library, not a taxi service!

Hey, don't feel you have to do others favors all the time. It's not your job. If they want a ride they should ask a bus driver, or cab driver for a ride. Some people seem to believe that the world owes them and it's okay to ask for whatever they want. I once had a total stranger ask if he could have...

Hi, new to this site.

Thank you to all. Susie, it seems that only people who know nothing about LHC are allowed to sell them. Hopefully, someday, things will change and those who sell LHC will actually know how to take care of them, and how to provide proper care info for them to their buyers.
