Website: The Hermit Crab Patch

Just wondering, how many of you buy stuff off The Hermit Crab Patch? I discovered it a few weeks ago and I think it's great. If you haven't yet, you should definitely check it out. There's a nice selection of safe, preservative free foods there and my crabs love it, especially the Crabby Delights Fr...

Great news, Renegade returned last night from his molt! I was so happy to come home from work and see him in there. He looks bigger and his color looks great, so much darker. So yay!!

My crabs have been lethargic, are they getting ready to molt?

A quick update: Miz Biz has perked up lately and I've seen her out more often. I think not handling her for a while has really helped. Last night, about 45 minutes after I was done putting fresh food and water out, I saw her climb up on one of the logs in the tank, then down the other side and strai...

I finally got it done

I have a plastic lid which also seems to be good at holding in the humidity when it's closed, but my problem is if I open it for like a minute to change the food and water, the humidity drops quickly. I manage to get it back above 70 though afterwards. I will take your suggestion of making holes in ...

I finally got it done

Last night I spent two hours cleaning out the old calcium sand out of my tank and putting play sand/Eco Earth in there instead, also making salt water and getting it nice and wet. I also stuck a digital thermometer and hygrometer inside on the back wall where I can see them easily. I also got a heat...

My crabs have been lethargic, are they getting ready to molt?

Also, I was planning on getting a bag of play sand tomorrow since I'm not working so I could replace the calcium sand that's in there now, but I can't do that without disturbing them. I want them to have the play sand rather than the calcium sand but I also don't want to do it right now if it's goin...

My crabs have been lethargic, are they getting ready to molt?

Okay I won't handle them for the next four weeks. I'll also keep things quiet as possible, I'm thinking maybe some loud noise from my brother and his friend may have upset them, he was over Saturday evening while I was at work. I saw Miz Biz out yesterday when I got home from work though which is go...

My crabs have been lethargic, are they getting ready to molt?

Okay, I will look for a heating pad. Do they sell them in pet stores? The food does not contain any ethoxyquin or copper sulfate, I checked the ingredients and it is only crickets, mealworms, and fruits and veggies. It is the same food that user kharasmatic mentioned in the LHC section. I will try f...

My crabs have been lethargic, are they getting ready to molt?

Okay, here it is:1) How long have you had your crabs and how long have you been caring for this particular crab in distress? I have had them for about three weeks, maybe a few days more.2) What size is your tank and what kind of lid do you have? 10 gallon tank with a plastic lid and large slit openi...

My crabs have been lethargic, are they getting ready to molt?

My crabs used to be more active, especially right after they changed their shells but lately the past few days it doesn't seem like they've been doing much. Miz Biz especially would come put every night and crawl around after I was finished changing their food and water and had left them alone in th...
