Re: Peeling Painted Shell

I just wanted to clarify that it is okay to boil the shells in salt water, it just can dull the polish. The crabs prefer "salty" shells as that is what they would have access to in the wild, as shells wash up on shore from the ocean. :D Thank you, people have tried to correct me for doing this but ...

Re: Not digging the moss pit

I am happy to report that I decided to make a different shell shop...and this time I used some moss and put the shells on top...needless to say the baby was all over it! I am hoping he was browsing for a new shell...I am still waiting for him and football to change shells, I hate the painted ones. M...

Hygrometer placement

So I have the digital hygrometer in my tank. I also have a UTH on the back of my tank above the substrate. I know I am supposed to place the hygrometer in the middle of the tank, but I do not have any place to put it due to the UTH on the back of the tank. I currently have it on side of the tank.......

Not digging the moss pit

I was super excited to create a moss pit for my babies...no one likes it [emoji53]. Should I do something different? Also, I am trying to make a shell shop and they have no interest in that either. Any suggestions?? http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160903/b4fd715936f9bc06a64b4bc275a24bbd.jpg http:/...

Didn't dig under yet...

I have had my 3 little friends for 2 weeks and 1 out of the 3 immediately dug under. My other 2 are enjoying their new digs....no pun intended. My little one seems to start to dig then ends up in a different spot then goes back, it's almost as though he snuggles in to sleep, but that's it. My other ...

Peeling Painted Shell

My little man is still cruising spring in his crappy painted shell that is now peeling.....and I feel bad for him.

Warning...Photo heavy...interesting duo tonight...

I found my 2 hermies in Squidward's home..a la Sponge Bob. I took pictures because they were acting strange. Not sure if this was good or bad behavior. I did finally intervene and separate them. I also have a video of the interaction. It starts out kinda crappy but gets better with focus. Any though...
