Re: Moss pit hiding

Ok should I not spray at all in the tank? I read spraying it with salt water prevents mold? Is it ok to spray other parts of the tank with freshwater to help with humidity (ours stays around 60-70 usually)? Dont use salt water to mist. The water evaporates but the salt never does. Also- there is no...

Re: Shivering crab

They shake to get sand or other junk out of their shells or to adjust their bums.

Re: 150g topper and spruce up

I love your setup! Your crabbies are soo cute, such beautiful colors they have. I Love the pictures. I want to do a topper so bad for the extra climbing room. What size tanks do you have? I downsized [emoji23] Over the last 5 years I’ve (and my fellow crabber ex roomie) have rescued or fostered ove...

Re: 150g topper and spruce up

I really love the look of topper. They give so much extra climbing and more decorating options! Your crew will love exploring! It's awesome how you added the basket into the climbing area too. I often wondered how much the temperature varies from the original tank level to higher up in the topper a...

Re: New Crab Mom[emoji3590] Have a question

Ok I was kinda worried because I didn’t see the part of the forum suggesting to gradually increase humidity. I have the humidity at around 70% and just added the substrate so I was thinking it was too much change in such a short period. Only one is in a painted shell so I hope he switches soon. Sen...

Re: Molter dug up, missing limbs

Here are OP’s photos from the FB page. Also- while we do encourage people who are having trouble with their crabs to use the emergency template so that areas of concern can be identified, this isn’t a requirement. People don’t have to fill it out or answer the questions unless they choose to do so. ...

Websites that humanely ship hermit crabs?

Shipping animals is horrendous to me. Maybe it's just me, but animals are not meant to be shipped at all, in any way. Period. Animals and shipping = wrong.

Re: My crab is only wearing a shell on his butt.

Sometimes crabs prefer smaller cap like shells on their abdomens depending on species. As long as plenty of shells are offered and it is wearing a shell there isn’t really cause for concern here. You may recommend that your sibling join or answer the questions because not having answers doesn’t real...
