Re: All hermit crabs suddenly died

No, I had not cleaned the bowls lately besides rinsing them out, and I never use any soap or detergent with my crabs.

Re: All hermit crabs suddenly died

I don't think so? Unless it is a mold I don't know but it not normal mold. I have some of that on cholla wood before (like 3 years ago) so I know how it typically looks.

Re: All hermit crabs suddenly died

So today I was cleaning the hides and things like that in my crabitat for when I possibly buy new crabs. I found some strange bugs? or something on or in the opening of a few of the shells. They were round and darkish gray. I looked at them under a microscope and didn't see any legs or eyes but just...

Re: All hermit crabs suddenly died

It also makes me hesitant for when I decide I want more crabs. (Crabs are the best so there's no doubt that I do) I don't want a repeat of whatever may have happened.

Re: All hermit crabs suddenly died

Thanks so much. Maybe that is what happened. I don't know. Acuff always seemed alert and healthy, no mites or anything, I made sure he seemed fine before introducing him to Brigadier and Harley. It is weird that this happened to all of them so suddenly. Still in shock about it. I'm 17 and I got Brig...

Re: All hermit crabs suddenly died

We did but this was a few months ago. And they rarely go in my room and don't go near my dresser where the tank is. I have another tank up there so they can't really fit. It is the weirdest thing. I can't find any reasoning behind it.

Re: All hermit crabs suddenly died

They were alive and well just a few days ago. We have cats but the tank is secure from them and they never bother the tank anyway. We live in a house so no spraying for bugs or anything.

All hermit crabs suddenly died

I went to care for my crabs today and was shocked and heartbroken to see all three of my crabs died suddenly. One was out of his shell and across the tank from it, one was dead in her shell in the freshwater pool, and one was dead in a piece of coral. Those two looked freshly died and were hanging f...

Re: Post your 20 gallon tanks!

Awesome! Tanks seem so expensive and hard to find. My brother has a leopard gecko in a 20 gallon long so I'm hoping he upgrades his gecko this year and I can have the 20 gallon.

Post your 20 gallon tanks!

I've had a 10 gallon tank for my small crabs for the past few years and it's definitely worked for them but I've wanted to upgrade for the longest time. I'm hoping later this year I can get a 20 gallon long tank. I kind of like seeing the all natural decorating of some tanks but then I also want a h...

Re: PetSmart Hermit Crabs

Before I knew too much about crabs I got mine from my previous local Petsmart. Not the best care but those crabs are all doing well over 2 years later.
