Re: Adoptions

I gave them to my brother and my mom has told me he doesn’t want to talk about the crabs. The last update I got was that he’s figured out how to take care of them, they don’t go through a lot of water, one walks around while the other one just sits in the corner. He’d spent hours researching their c...

Adoptions

What are the rules with crab adoptions? I adopted my crabs out to my brother a couple of months ago right before I moved but I have no idea if he is even caring for them properly. I am not allowed to follow up to make sure they’re receiving proper care. We have likened it to when you give a baby up ...

Crabs adopted by a family member

I was not sure where to put this but my crabs were adopted by my brother. I actually sent him care sheets from here and he spent HOURS researching. Like he was up until 3 in the morning studying up on hermit crab care. I was told my brother would take good care of them but unfortunately, I have no w...

Also in LHCOS, you aren’t allowed to delete your own comments if you say something you shouldn’t or make a mistake. They claim people can benefit from the discussion.

Re: Tupperware lid as a food dish

I thought of this after I realized that there is not enough room on standard reptile food dishes for all the foods that they need.

Tupperware lid as a food dish

I’m thinking of using a Tupperware lid as a food dish to hit all parts of my crabs’ diet. This way they can seek out what they’re needing.

Re: Crabs aren't digging

While it’s more expensive, I got my play sand from Amazon and mixed it with Eco Earth. One brand I use is called WeJe play sand. Here’s a link to one of the brands that I use: https://www.amazon.com/Play-Sand-bag-sand-fine/dp/B073XVQFPJ/ref=mp_s_a_1_71?keywords=play+sand&qid=1568752976&sr=8-71#immer...

Re: Crab halfway out of shell and limp, not moving

1. What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? Black and white gravel-ish pebbles. It’s about 2 inches deep Hi there, I’m going to respond with Crabby33. Gravel is not recommended. Most people here use a 5:1 ratio of play sand/eco earth to mimic their natural habitat. It needs to...

Turnip greens

I have a question about turnip greens. Do these have to be cooked or can they be fed raw?

Re: Lighter weight shells

My crabs tend to prefer heavier medium sized shells like Apple Murex. I do offer turbos, but the crabs go for the heavier shells.
